Happy Holiday Weekend!
Hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend. I celebrated the 4th by setting aside some time for myself to play with the chantilly bow die from Tattered Lace. I have been wanting to create with this die for quite some time but time seems to keep getting away from me!
I had a layout in mind and even the color scheme of white on white with teal as the accent. Teal is becoming my new go to color this summer. I even picked up a few new kitchen towels with teal in them! I think because it reminds me so much of the beautiful Caribbean sea and how much I love sitting on my favorite beach in Barbados and taking in the stunning scenery. I am so grateful that I was there just a few months ago for Maria and Gary's wedding. So many wonderful memories and..........dreaming of my next visit.
OK, now back to reality and my card ------
I cut the pretty bow die twice - once in teal (Hero Arts pool card stock set) and once in white. I cut the white bow in order to layer it differently underneath the teal one. I also used the new 5 X 7 embossing folder (delicate hearts). I picked a white rose that I had already made previously and added it to the center of the bow. I am so pleased with the outcome. It is so pretty and really can be used for so many occasions. And it was a QUICK card! I only fussed with the bow - curling it a bit and raising it when adhered it to the card. The finishing touch was made with a Viva Decor pearl pen.
Here is a side view so that you can see the layers, depth and detail of this card ---
Now, onto my next creation. Well, actually, it's off to work soon! But, hopefully I will have some more time this week to create some new cards for your inspiration.
