I have also had a couple of questions in my comments that I wanted to answer. First off, Ingrid asked me how I tie my bows. Hopefully I will be able to explain this easily. First off, I just tie the bow as I would tie my shoes. After that I put my fingers into the loops of the bow and tighten it. Then I pull on the ends to shorten the loops. I keep repeating this process until the bow is the size I want it, the shape I want, and the look I am going for. Then I cut the ends and attach it to my card! Pretty easy to do...not as easy to explain! I hope this makes at least some sense!
And then Mel Nunn asked me about what card sizes I use, and how to get them from 12x12 sheets of Bazzill cardstock. I make all different sizes of cards, but my main ones would be 5x7, 4.25x5.5, 6x6, and 4x4. This is the size of Bazill you would need to cut for all of those:
5x7 card= 7x10 strip of Bazzill
4.25x5.5 card= 5.5x8.5 stip of Bazzill
6x6 card= 6x12 strip of Bazzill
4x4 card= 4x8 strip of Bazzill
I am also going to give a little plug for the Scor-pal. This is one of the best cardmaking tools I own! It makes scoring and folding cards super quick, precise, and easy! Be sure to check it out!
Feel free to ask me questions if you have them! I love to give help and advice wherever I can...even if I am not an expert! Tee hee!
