Elegant, but Still Simple...

Deborah March made this gorgeous card. The details in the card...the bow, the nested gold ovals, the gold embellishment pin, the red crystal berries and the layers of paper may have taken a bit of time to put together, but the holly sprig (stencil LL3005) was merely paste embossed with the metallic gold paste. Very simple yet very elegant as well, Deborah. Recently I had a customer ask about how to tie a nice bow, and several of the design team have chatted back and forth about doing a tutorial. Louise Healy did post a step-by-step on her blog. Deborah mentioned that she uses a plastic template called "Bow Easy" which works well, and uses it all the time for her work. As you can see, here are the results of the "Bow Easy". Hop around on the Dream Team's blogs, because you may see some other recommendations over the next few days for bow tying.
