Welcome Stampin' Friends!
I have a quick bow/knot tip for you today. Most of my customers are not a fan of tying bows. This trick makes it easier. Here is a card we did in Stamp Club of few months ago. I also made a few for Mother's Day. Since I still had a lot of the Love Blossoms DSP left and it retires in a few short days, I made a bunch of these "Herringbone" cards for different occasions and arranged them into gift sets.
That sweet little ribbon knot is so easy to make. Cut a piece of seam binding or ribbon about 10" long, or double what the size of your card is and tie it around a clear block. I used Block H (4 7/16" x 1 5/8") to fit on the 5" x 3 3/4" panel of my card.
Since I want my bow knot to be on the left side of the panel,
I cut the back of the ribbon towards the right side.
This is to make sure you have enough ribbon to wrap around the back
and adhere to the panel.
And there you have it. Embellish as you wish! Easy Peasy.
