CASology: Bow

Hi there!

Time for a new cue card at CASology !


So many directions to go with the challenge this week. I decided to to go with the obvious choice, seeing that we are in  🎅 mode.

up close :

and a sharper angle to show off the shimmer :

The striped bow is a Hero Arts design in the Silhouette store: Design ID #69514.

I once again opted to use the fill function for printing instead of trying to cut out all the inner lines. I added a 1 mm offset to cut it out with my Silhouette, and added red Deco-foil with my laminator.

The Merry Christmas print on the card base is from The pixel scrapper.

I cut out an aperture on the top layer and popped it up over the card base with fun foam, finishing off the design  with red flat back pearls to add to the festive feeling of the bow.

I absolutely KNEW that I would be in for a treat of eye candy...and I was not disappointed! This word has so many opitions - violin bow, gift bow, dog saying "bow-wow"...

Amazing design - love the red blings and love the recessed sentiment!

Busy as ever her right now....and cold too! Haven't had much time for visiting...tis the season...

This is beautiful! The circle of text works beautifully with that gorgeous bow.

That foil is so gorgeous, Hannelie, and I love the repeated sentiment inside the circle.

You never cease to amaze with your design style! I love this modern pearl "wreath"!

Leslie Miller said...

Another stellar example of your expertise with the silhouette! And the laminated Deco-foil -- I can't even imagine. Love the pearl wreath. Very imaginative!

Stylish and gorgeous, Hannelie ... the foiling is fabulous on that wonderful bow! Hugs, Anita :)

This is such a cool layout. I had to go to my Silhouette software, pull up the bow design and imagine how I would do something similar to what you've done. I don't have a laminator, yet, but I'm hoping to get one after Christmas. I'll be looking at those after-holiday sales!
