Stampin’ Up! Simply Wonderful Congratulations Bow Tie

I used the Simply Wonderful Sale-A-Bration exclusive stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create a little bow tie card to share today.

Simply Wonderful - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by Mojo Monday #379.

Screen Shot 2015-01-09 at 3.15.57 PMI started by embossing a panel of Sahara Sand card stock with the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Soft Suede card stock then to a Coastal Cabana card base with with SNAIL.

Simply Wonderful 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered two panels from the Best Year Ever DSP (Sale-A-Bration item) to panels of Soft Suede card stock, then to the card front with SNAIL.

Simply Wonderful 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered a strip of Soft Suede card stock to the card front with SNAIL punched the bow from Soft Suede card stock with the Bow Builder Punch.  For quick assembly, use your Bone Folder to round the two side pieces of the bow, then adhere everything together with Glue Dots.  The bows go together really quickly that way!

Simply Wonderful 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I colored the sentiment from the Simply Wonderful stamp set with Coastal Cabana and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped it on a Whisper White panel.  I punched the sentiment out with the Extra-Large Oval Punch and adhered it with SNAIL to an Extra-Large Oval Punch from Soft Suede card stock, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Best Year Ever DSP - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered a strip of the Best Year Ever DSP to a strip of Coastal Cabana card stock, then to a Whisper White panel inside the card.

  1. These colors look AMAZING, Amy! I’m in love with this dp and can’t wait to get my own! Your card is very tailored….the bow making it extra special! I like how you added another small piece of brown oval under the sentiment. I always love the way you finish off the inside of your cards, so I’ve added a little more to the insides of mine too! Thanks for your tips~

    • Thanks so much Roberta! I love this designer paper too. 🙂 The colors are some of my favorites and I’m using it on everything! Glad that you like peeking at the inside of my cards too.

  2. I love this paper and your layering! The bow just sets off the whole card! Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards with us so we can learn.

  3. Amy, I love your layers! Especially how you embossed the polka dots, it’s those details that really make your cards so special 🙂 I am having a hard time resisting that bow punch too, lol. Thanks for another beautiful card, I’m still wading (s.l.o.w.l.y) through all your other “want to make” cards 😉
