Flat Bow Card

One last follow up to last weekend's Stampin' Addicts Winter Holiday Blog Hop: the flat bow card.

Colors: Island Indigo, Pool Party, and Whisper White.  Stamps: That's the Ticket.   Big Shot: Gift Bow Bigz L. Punch: Ticket Duo. Accessories: Silver Foil Paper, Island Indigo Textured Card Stock, Winter Frost Designer Series Stack.   
The inspiration for this card came from convention.  In the product showcase, they had a board that showed different ways to make bows with this die:

And just for good measure, here's the other board with samples:

When you purchase this die, it cuts the following shapes:

Gift Bow Bigz L Die

To make the flat bow on the card, you use four of the "fish tail" pieces and one of the small strips (for the middle). The Silver Foil Paper from the Holiday Catalog adds just the right bit of sparkle and shine to the the bow and card. And the Christmas greeting from That's the Ticket makes the perfect little "tag" for this card. 

I hope you enjoyed this closer look at the Gift Bow Bigz L die this week.  Next week, I'll have even more Christmas ideas as I start to post projects for my Holiday Stampin' Buffets.  Stay tuned!
