Hey there my Crafty Friends,
Today on my Youtube channel I have a beautiful spring inspired card just in time for Easter. I do have it up a day early ( It is a follow along Friday video) but there is a good reason, tomorrow (Friday) there will be a video hop I am apart of so, a special video is going up for that. I still wanted to get this up for you all to make and enjoy though so, a day early it is!
What I used:
- A2 sized card
- Scissors/ paper trimmer
- Paper (designer, coloured card stock, whatever you want to use)
- Embellishment (gem, dot, etc for centre of bow)
- Edging scissors (or a punch, die, etc)
How I did it:
- I used an A2 sized card, pre-folded ( but obviously feel free to make your own)
- Trim off as much of the outer edge on the side that opens as you like. I took off about 5 cm (around 2 inches)
- Use edging scissors to cut along the edge you just cut - if you are using a die you may skip the first cutting step
- Cut ribbon into 5 pieces- 1 to go along the middle of the card, the backing for the bow , 2 of equal length (longer), 2 of equal length (shorter)
- Glue down backing piece of ribbon along the centre of the card
- cut and glue a piece of designer paper or coloured card stock on the inside of the card, on the side that you see when card is closed.
- take two longer pieces of ribbon, put some glue in the centre of the first one, and fold both ends to centre to stick them down.
- Take the second piece of longer ribbon and place it under the one you just glued to make a "+" shape
- place some more glue in the centre of the first ribbon and glue the second piece the same as the first attaching them.
- Take the two short pieces and repeat the same steps seperately
- Once you have one larger bow and one smaller bow, glue them together, placing the ends of the smaller bow between the ends of the bigger bow to make it look fuller, like petals on a flower
- Glue the new big bow in the centre on the backing ribbon already glue to the the card.
- and finally, glue the embellishment in the centre of the bow
