Reason to Smile with a Bow!

A quick and easy card for you today using the Reason to Smile Stamp Set which you can still get for free until the end of this month with an order of £60 or more.


The daisy image from Reason to Smile was stamped randomly in Melon Mambo ink onto Confetti White card and matted onto a Melon Mambo card base.  The sentiment is from the Hopeful Thoughts Stamp Set and again was stamped in Melon Mambo ink onto Confetti White card. The sentiment and mat were then cut using the Labels Collection Framelits Dies and Big Shot and trimmed to give the shape.


The bow uses a piece of the gorgeous 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Melon Mambo. A length of White Baker's Twine was threaded through Rose Red and Whisper White Designer Buttons and tied round the ribbon to make a bow shape. A Rhinestone Jewel covers the twine on the button and the bow was attached to the card using Mini Glue Dots. This is a really quick way of making a bow - I will have to do a tutorial as I have made it sound far harder than it is!
