Craft-Dee BowZ "All About the Guys!"

 It's my turn up on the Craft-Dee  BowZ Blog.  Our August theme is masculine using the colors brown, burgundy and a single loop bow.  With a wedding anniversary coming in October, this was perfect timing for me.   So, I'm sharing a card for the special man in my life...my hero, my friend!

  We will be celebrating 38 years of marriage soon and have been together for 40.  Really?  That was fast!   Using our masculine theme and colors,  I created an anniversary card that will actually be ready in advance!

The card base of craft and brown is 6" x 6".  You know how square I am when it comes to card making! I layered patterned paper in the same color tones and then used burgundy for my accent embellishments.

A piece of sheer brown ribbon is wrapped around the upper corner of the card.  The bow was created using my fabulous Craft-Dee BowZ Tool.  It helps create bows quickly and with ease.  I seriously love wide, sheer ribbon when making bows.  Next, I hot glued the bow on the corner ribbon and  attached the chain and gear to the center of it.  I added brass number studs to represent 38 years and buttons tied with twine to the centers of a few of the other gears.  The sentiment is stamped and die-cut to look like another gear.  A small brass paper clip is the final touch.

Craft-Dee BowZ August Blog Hop!

It's time for another Craft-Dee BowZ  Blog Hop!
We are celebrating the "Guy in your life" for August. 

One of my husband's favorite pastimes, other than golf, is reading.  He loves to read and keeps a book on hand at all times.  So, a special bookmark was in order for him as the one he is currently using is looking very worn!


I really like how this bookmark turned out.  Our color theme for August is brown and burgundy.  I found some very old MME papers in my stash that were masculine and the right colors.  The chipboard clocks are ancient too and the cards are from a newer purchase.  The sentiment and image are from the Rogue Redhead Designs, "Relish Reading" stamp set.  The ink looks red for some reason, but it is burgundy IRL!  I used some of my favorite die cuts for embellishing along with trim and buttons from our August DT product.
The single loop bow was made so easily with my Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool and twine.  You can make beautiful bows in record time with this easy to use tool
