Christmas in March

This is the card we'll be making in the Christmas Club tomorrow.  It features Jennifer Timko's method of bow-tying, and I hope my club members enjoy it!  Jennifer and I even made a short video tutorial while she was visiting. You can see it HERE. My bows still need some work, but they're looking better, now that she showed me how! (BTW, this was tied with a square knot - you'll know what I mean when you see the video.)

This card by Mercedes Weber was the inspiration (thanks, Mercedes!), and I only made minor modifications to it. I wanted to make it an A2 size, and I like the kind of aged look of Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip together. Other than that, it's pretty much a direct CASE.

Stamps: Plant Hope, Petite Pairs
Cardstock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip
Ink: VersaMark, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Big Shot, Northern Flurry embossing folder, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Crumb Cake 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon, Rhinestones Basic Jewels, Stampin' Sponges, Stampin' Dimensionals
