WHEN IS A BOW NOT A BOW ???

When it's a KNOT !!!
This month for Fantastic Ribbons the design team are doing all about bows, now, as a scrap store owner and teacher, I know loads of you just want to run away at the thought of doing a bow, but I wanted to let you know that it's OK, you don't have to hang your head in shame... you can cheat !!!
I personally think knots look just as cute as bows, especially for mens cards. That's not to say you can't get some exquisite bows out of these ribbons.... I could have gone on and on and on :) :)
For this card I used the Gingham and Satin Edged Organza, now this isn't just any old gingham, oh no... the softness for a start makes it so easy to work with, and it's got a gorgeous little loopy edge (I love this) and the Organza will work with anything, perfect for that "filling in" piece. I do like things in threes.
This card is great for using up your scraps, and when you need something quick. You don't have to go all the way round with the ribbon, just stick about a 1/4" to the back of the cardstock either side, bring to the front and tie, no point wasting it!!

Products Used :
Gingham 54078
