Beautiful Bow

Here is a quick and simple card I made today.

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made of dark blue card stock.  The aqua mat is 5 1/4"x4" and I used one of the Cuttlebug folders from James' Set to emboss the stripes.

For the rest of the card I used dies and stamps from Jaded Blossom.

The strip of aqua card stock is cut using one of the dies from the Card Mat Dies set.  I used the largest one and cut a piece of card stock, then lined it up to cut it again, creating the strip.  I used their new set of dies, Bow Dies to create the bow.  I then added an aqua gem to the middle of the bow.  The sentiment is stamped on label, which is from the Mini Tag Dies 2 set.  The sentiment itself is from So Many Birthdays stamp set.  It is stamped in night sky ink by Tsukineko.

I made this for the following challenges:

  1. What a nice (and very useful, I imagine) embossing folder. I've not seen it before. Love that neat bow too!

  2. A striking card, Paula, and I love those embossed stripes! Adds a lot of texture and interest to a CAS card! Well done!
