Bow Tie Gems Too

Do you want to create your own cards or small projects, but you have no idea where to start or what to buy? Don't worry. You are not alone. Our monthly subscription to Paper Pumpkin may be just the ticket. And the fun does not stop there. You end up with extra supplies to continue to create beyond the kit. Here is a card I made using some left-over pieces from a kit along with a few other supplies in my craft room. What do you think?

   What a Gem (Paper Pumpkin, July 2016)

   Emerald Envy A-2
   Very Vanilla 5-1/4 x 4, 3-1/3 x 5-1/2
   Black Tie Optional DSP 1-3/4 x 4-1/2 (2)
   Copper Foil 1-3/4 x 4-1/2
   Triangles from Paper Pumpkin Kit (7/2016)

   Emerald Envy

   Builder Punch

   Bow Builder Punch
   Glue Dots
   Copper Dots Washi Tape

First, I made my three bows using my Bow Builder Punch. I then cut triangles from the kit. I measured these on my grid paper to make sure they were each three inches in length.

I then placed my three sets of triangles onto the Very Vanilla 3-1/4 x 5-1/2 panel. I used glue dots to attach them. I placed the top ones first, then the bottom ones, followed by the middle ones.

I then stamped the three sentiments plus the gem at the bottom. 

Next, I built my card from the bottom up. The Emerald Envy is the card base, followed by the washi tape with copper dots on it. I placed two strips on each end. See the card above.

I then added the Very Vanilla panel on top, making sure it covered half of the washi strip on each side.

I then attached the bow ties using glue dots. The copper foil one is in the middle.

Lastly, I adhered the other Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the card.

Paper Pumpkin should not be ignored. I enjoy putting my kit together monthly. Remember, I made this card with left-over pieces. You can easily accumulate your own collection of stamp sets, ink spots, and many extras to continue to create between kits.

  1. I really like this card! I love the bows, and the triangular pieces of the card are great! Then, the sentiments are right on!

    1. Thank you, Fonda. I haven't been anywhere for quite some time. Are bow ties still a thing? Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Much Appreciated!
