Wow, three posts in the last two days....
I think I have a Crafty Fever!!!
I greet you today for my 3 Girl JAM Design Team Post.
I get to show you the darling miniature bows I am so obsessed with lately!
It's just something about things that are pretty and tiny
that make me feel like a kid again!!!
And, of course they are SUPER EASY to make using the 3 Girl JAM Bow Maker!!!
and the White ribbon from the July 2012 limited edition Red, White and Blue bundle.
I had started by using my Sizzix Christmas Tree Die on Produce Green Core card stock.
As soon as I picked up the left over scraps, I got the idea to create my first EVER Shaker Card.
I embossed the outer frame with a snowflakes folder, then sanded lightly, and added some Platinum Dew Drop ink. I applied some Stardust Stickles using a cotton ball for added sparkle.
For my "shaker pouch", I used a plastic treat bag and added some Green, Gold and Red micro beads. I grabbed some little "bits and bobs" I had kept from different Cricut Cut leftovers
and scraps left from using my punches. There were some teeny, tiny,
fun Scarlet Pearl Core card stock pieces (from a banner cut off of Pretty Pennants) as well as a few blue and green snowflakes leftover after using an ekSuccess border punch.
(SEE Heather Lynn, I knew I would use them...LOL)
Behind the top layer, I used core couture Green card stock, embossed
it with a Swirls folder and sanded the swirls lightly. I added a touch ofGold Dew Drops ink to finish it. The ribbon garland was created by simply knotting up the Holly Berry Red Crinkle Ribbon and adhering behind the tree cut.
The JOY sentiment is a rub-on transfer.
The border was created by using the same Snowflake punch I mentioned before.
I lined the inside of my card with core couture Red card stock.
The current Challenge at 3 Girl JAM is still open until Thursday night.
The theme is a fabulous Thanksgiving Color Challenge.
I tried to incorporate those colors (a hint of some and a dash of others!!!)
and jumped over the Thanksgiving theme a bit and skipped straight to Christmas.
I think they work well for both Holidays, don't you???
