Baby Card

Hi Everybody,

Today we have been busy creating two videos that will be live in tomorrows post and this is the card that will be the subject of both.

The first video will be how to create the Filigree Hinged cards from any of your fancy edged Spellbinders.

This particular one is using the 5 x 7 Detailed Scallops and it makes a good sized card.

The effect is enhanced with the large triple bow that is made from Organza ribbon with a flower centre... and that is the subject of the second video.

Griff has donned his woodworking hat again and created this handy little Bow Maker. 

 It is available to buy now at My Shop 

It is made from solid wood and will sit neatly on your worktop there for whenever you need a bow to add to your designs.

The video will show you how I create some pretty bows that can be added to any of your projects.

The bow maker has been made with dowels that can be moved into the different holes to create various sized bows ...  from really tiny ones up to 4" ones.

And there are two thin dowels and three thicker ones. You will need two thicker ones to make a bow the other is a spare should you lose one.

They are very easy to remove from the holes and place in a new position.

This triple bow has a Dazzler for the centre to hide the knot and will be added to a card soon.

The flowers on the featured card  are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and they are the Cosmos Daisies.

The circular sentiment is a set available from Lili of the Valley  and I have added it to a Lacey Circle.
