Good morning and welcome to the blog today.

I've a very richly coloured card for you today.
I've teemed burgundy with gold card stock and kept it very simple to show the beautiful embossing and intricate detail of the dies. 8 x 8" square card


Tonic - Garland Fancy embossing and die set; Large and small lacy bows die sets

When curling the bow I used the handle of an old make up brush which is perfectly round and smooth. I placed the bow onto the palm of my hand and gently stroked the card and paper with the brush handle to help curl the bow and not get any crumples on the surface. As you cup your hand the bow curls even more and so is easier to glue together and keep it's shape. :)

Thank you for calling in today. Don't forget the Idyllics and Strip die programmes on Create and Craft today:
