January is birthday month in our household, so I'd like to share the card I made for my eldest son for his birthday. I used the new Bow Builder punch from the new Stampin'Up! Occasions Catalogue. It was so much fun to use and made all the more easier by watching the associated Stampin'Up! video.
Here's my card.
I based my card on the sample in the Occasions catalogue but decided I wanted the bows to look like mens bow ties so I added the extra side strips. These are just extra centre wrap punch pieces as you get an extra one left over after creating your bows.
To see how to use the punch and create your bows watch this video by Stampin'Up!
The paper is a great new Designer Series Paper Stack called Adventure Bound. This stack has a great variety of masculine and outdoor designs/photos.
Items used to create this card were -
Stamps - Balloon Bash
Ink - Craft white inkpad
Card - Sahara Sand, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso
Paper - Adventure Bound Designer Series paper stack
Punch - Bow Builder punch
I hope you have some fun using this punch creating some great cards and gift wrapping embellishments!
