Glimmer Bow Ties really “pop” on a black background!

You may recognize these bow ties from the Handsomely Suited Bundle (#156240) but I bet you never thought of using them with shiny glimmer paper, did you? I love how they really “pop” when placed on Basic Black Cardstock (#121045) background layer.

Bow Tie Birthday

For this card, I used Magenta Madness Cardstock (#153080) for the greeting and the coloured layer between the Basic Black card base and the Basic Black layer behind the bows. If you wanted to use this as a masculine card, you could easily replace the Magenta Madness Cardstock with a more masculine colour like Pacific Point (#111350) or Shaded Spruce (#146981).

The Suit & Tie Dies (#154322) give you 2 different sizes of bow ties. For this card I used the smaller one and added the centre using the “buckle” die that is often used to complete the suspenders. So many ideas, so little time!

You can see another card made with this bundle here.
