Craft-Dee BowZ Blog Hop


Welcome to another Craft-Dee BowZ Blog Hop! I am your first stop on this wonderful Blog Hop. Our theme this time around is Butterflies and Flowers with of course some pretty bows.

I have a birthday coming up this month for a special friend so I wanted to keep my card elegant but still simple. To do that I used an embossing folder from Craft Concepts called Achebe. Embossed on white cardstock.

Used Donna-Salazar Fanciful Flight Spellbinder die to cut out a butterfly which I attached on an embossed butterfly but just by the body.

For my bow, I did a multiple loop bow with the Craft-Dee BowZ and added some tails. I then took my heat gun and “melted” my ribbon some to make it “curly”.


Used a sentiment from Paper Pretties and layered with a little bit of grey to get the final card:


Hope you enjoyed my card. Now hop on over to Brenda’s blog to see her creation. Don’t forget to comment on all the blogs to be in the running for the prize, your very own Craft-Dee BowZ tool! Winner will be announced on the Craft-Dee BowZ blog on Saturday, June 8th.

Holy Cow! I LOVE your card!!
The bow is beautiful - I would never have thought of melting the ribbon, but the effect is gorgeous. Thanks for the inspiration.
