Bow Tie Birthday

Hello everyone! I’m here with a birthday card I made for a couple challenges. I played along with Inspired By All the Little Things and Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge. I used the bottom row on the board. I don’t have very many birthday cards for kids so when I saw the colors of the inspiration photo I thought of making a card for one of my little cousins. Here it is and how I made it!


I started with the blue panel and wrapped some lighter blue mesh around it. I cut the mesh with wavy lines to add a little interest. The rest of the card is pretty clean cut so this added a little texture and variety to the design. Then I used a bow kit to make this striped bow tie. I adhered it over the mesh. Finally I die cut a sentiment out of some vellum and stapled it onto the panel. Lastly I adhered the blue piece to a white A2 sized card base. This card was super easy and has lots of dimension. Definitely going to have to hand deliver this one. Here are the links to the challenges:
