I feel like I have started every post recently with a big thank you and a comment on how I was blown away by your comments however I couldn't let today go without saying how amazed I was by the reaction to yesterdays card. I was literally shocked by how lovely all the comments were, so thank you all.
Now back to today and it should be your card however yesterday I was so busy prepping tutorials that I just didn't have time to make something however I did pick out the recipient so it will go live tomorrow. Therefore todays card is one from the vaults I made a couple of weeks ago.
I haven't shown it before as quite a few commentators have said they are not keen on big bows so I wanted to alter the card to show it with, and without, the big bow and let you decide.
Firstly with the bow...
And secondly without, my preference, in this case is for the bow as I feel it lacks something without.
I used a shimmer paper form DoCrafts for the background which has been cut and embossed with a section from Spellbinders Gold Elements one. Close up the areas that have been debossed have a beautiful shine to them. I tried to balance this with a mate cut with spellbinders border dies (cant find the die so cant remember which one) Finally the sentiment section is cut with Gold Ovals which juts emboss so I drew around the die and hand cut the oval as well as adding some inking in the centre section.
let me know which you prefer!
