Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge – Bow Tie

Hello close up
It’s time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge – Bow Tie! Here is the inspirational graphics for you.

I love the colours on this bow tie because depending on how much you use each colour, you can make masculine or feminine cards. More of grays and blues = Masucline. More of Yellows and Blues = Feminine. Of course the images should go with the theme 🙂

We have a new sponsor, Waffle Flower Crafts, for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Bow Tie!  A randomly selected participant in the Bow Tie challenge will have their choice of a Waffle Flower Crafts stamp set!

I have used Waffle Flower Loved Stamp set and coordinating die to make my card for the challenge.
Hello vertical

I loved the stripes on the bow tie which I recreated on the card front using yellow, blue and two shades of gray cardstock. I trimmed the cardstock to different width sizes and adhered to the cardfront. Trimmed the excess on either sides. For the centre white panel, I have used the new dies from Pretty Pink Posh called Stitched Duo 2 die set. I love the stitching detail on the PPP dies. I die cut using woodgrain cardstock. I then stamped the flowers, bow and leaves from the Loved stamp set using the colours from the challenge graphics, die cut them using the coordinating die set from Waffle Flower. Clustered and glued some of them directly on the woodgrain panel, a few using foam adhesives. The sentiment “Hello” is from Wplus9  die cut using gray cardstock. The beautiful yellow 6mm and 4mm sequins are from my Pretty Pink Posh. Absolutely love the colours on my card and hope I have inspired you enough to play along with me at the challenge 🙂 Here is a closeup!
