Bows in Kaleidoscope Card Inspiration

Hello everyone, it’s Elena Olinevich her to show you how bows can be fun when you are creating the cards.

To create the bows I used SR-069 Steel Rule Die – Contour Bow-Tique.

It was fun to cut the bows from different papers.

For some of my cards I used Ribbon Banners Dies to cut out the sentiment.

However I decided to add some texture on my background and I played a lot with S5-280 Kaleidoscope Die.

The easiest way is to die cut the shape and adhere it to the background.

But I also embossed the die and received a dimensional texture on my card. For one of my card I added the leftovers mixing different colors and papers.

For my next cards, I cut out the embossed shapes and then mounted them on foam tape, and topped them with pearls and rhinestones.

I also removed some of the shapes, mounted the card panel and I liked this like a window looking wholes.

For this card I used fabric to create my bow, you can notice it has been cut out perfectly, no threads, as if it is of a paper one.

I love the result, that is why I made even 6 cards at once, mixing the papers and the sketch for them.
