Filigree Bow Cards
These cards are made featuring a couple of Filigree dies I recently purchased from an Etsy Shop called PNW Crafts. I stumbled across them while searching for the bow die because it happens to be hard to find right now since it's not made in the US. This shop had one left, along with quite a few other goodies, that I loved so much I ended up making a pretty large purchase. (oops!) The stuff came in 2 days! I'm telling you, you can't get better service! "Shout Out" to PNW Crafts!!
The baby card is made with the small filigree bow designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. The die set comes with dies to make two sizes of bows and accent ribbon. Additional dies used were Marianne Creatables LR0269 lattice dome and 0218 baby carriage dies. I embossed texture on the bottom of the front panel with an EF and accented the bow with a decorative button.
The birthday card is made using two of the large-sized bows in the set. I made one complete bow and adhered it to the card, then I made a second bow and cut it in half and adhered one half to each side of the first bow to give the illusion of a double bow. I accented the bow with a small white flower.
The circle doily is made using Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses set (which I also got from PNW Crafts). The sentiment and frilly stamped frame in the center is Just Rite Designs "You Inspire Me" stamp set. I finished off the embellishing with some rose-colored pearls scattered around the design.
Here's photos of the dies I used.
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
