JUGs Word Week Card Challenge- BONUS POST

Hello my lovely crafty friends and welcome back! Today we have a bonus post. I am back at participating in the Just Us Girls challenges. This weeks challenge is Word Week #521 and the word is BOWS. I was a guest designer on their blog awhile back and I loved doing it so much I was sad when I had to take a break but I’m back now and everything is back to some semblance of normal. I thought long and hard about what type of card I wanted to do with a bow. At first I thought birthday but then I thought that would be what most people will go for so I had to keep thinking and I came up with this:

I used one of my ink blended backgrounds from my Favorite Distress Oxide Blends post which you can find here. I then used this pretty ribbon that came in one of my Simon Says Stamp card kit. I made the band by wrapping the ribbon around and then the bow is separate. I had a lot of trouble getting the bow to adhere but I eventually tried Scor Tape and it finally stuck! I wanted this card to be simple so I heat embossed a ‘Happy Valentines Day’ sentiment with WOW! Turkish Delights embossing glitter and didn’t add any gems or sequins (I know, I’m proud of me too 😊) I attached everything to Neenah 100# Desert Storm cardstock to balance out the brightness of the blended background.

That’s it for this weeks bonus post, I hope you enjoyed! Will you join the challenge? There’s still time! If you do, link your post down below and I would love to check out your creation. Have a great day and keep creating! XOXO
