Sizzix Bigz Bows

Hello my dear friends! Welcome back! This is Deepti and I'm here today to share three simple, yet kind of elegant and non-traditional Christmas cards!

I've see Green and Red everywhere, I like those colors but I love making Christmas cards with non-traditional Christmas colors sometimes. So I went with Pink, Peach and Purple colors, pretty unusual for Christmas, right!? ;) But these cards turned out pretty cool in their own way. The touch of the 'glittery golden bows' really added so much elegance to the cards!

CARD DETAILS

I started by die-cutting the bows out of gold glittery card stock and assembled them following the printed instructions on the paper that comes along with the die pack.

I thought it would be a tough task to assemble all these pieces but trust me, it was super easy!

I have pre-scored standard colored card stocks, stamped the sentiments with Versamark Ink pad and heat embossed it with Gold and Silver embossing powders. On Pink card stock I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink and left it without heat embossing. Since this ink is a slow drying and sticky ink it creates a water mark effect on the card.

Finally adhered the bows onto the card bases and finished off with a few sparkling clear sequins!

A few more still shots for you :)
