An Easter bow with a Sue Wilson die

Can one fall in love with a die?  I think I have.  This wonderful set arrived yesterday and I have been having a play with it this morning and it is just the best.

I grabbed a piece of light card and made this:

I then searched about trying to find something to put it on.  I even looked in my box of already made cards but couldn't find something suitable. Not an easy colour to have chosen.   I did find though a La Pashe decoupage topper ready to be finished off.  I printed off another topper giving it a large border in the right colour using my ACDSee  graphics programme to give me the paper to use for the die.
Here is the result:

There is also a die cut strip of ribbon but I couldn't find a spot for that.    I used 160gsm Ultimate Graphic card (stiff paper)  from Polkadoodles.  I use that for all my toppers and decoupage.  A beautiful finish.

So expect lots of bows to go with my flowers and my favourite La Pashe CD's.

The dies were bought from Joanna Sheen.

You are going to have to get a set.


  1. Beautiful bow, makes me wish I had a die cut machine but at least I might get a proper craft room later this year (crossing fingers) but a machine looks a long way off, hubby does not consider I make enough cards for one(I wonder if I will ever make enough in his mind for one)
    I look forward to seeing lots of great bows on every card.

  2. It's a beautiful bow isn't it Carol? I could just sit and make them all day! I might just have to buy the other 2 bows from Sue LOL!

  3. Such a beautiful bow Carol, I bought the Rob Addams one at the NEC and have not used it yet. Seeing this wonderful bow though I might just have to give it a go.
