Occasions Card Wednesday - Gold Bow Christmas Card

Into September my sights are firmly placed on Christmas, gifts, decorations, packaging and of course cards.

The one I've made today, after receiving my Bigz L Bow Die yesterday is definitely not one to be stuffed in an envelope but it might just be the perfect card to put with a box of chocolates or any gift for a teacher, neighbour, friend etc, etc.

The bow has been cut from both Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the new Gold Foil Sheets that can be found in the Holiday Catalogue.  The description foil made it sound very thin but it is of a nice card weight that works well with both the Big Shot Dies and punches.

For a different look to the bows these are the ones I put together last night using Smokey Slate and Coastal Cabana Cardstock teamed with the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack.  The 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" paper stack papers are not large enough to cut the centre of the bow but cutting them in half meant they worked well for the accent pieces.
