Tuesday’s Tips & Techniques Video Creating a Brad Bow

Tuesday, August 25, 2015
Brad Bow and Embellished Ornaments
In today’s Tuesday’s Tips and Techniques Video I’m going to show you how to create the Brad Bow that is on this card.

This card is a 4 1/4″ X 4 1/4″ square card and features a couple of sneak peak products from the New Holiday catalog. The stamp set is the New Embellished Ornaments with coordinating Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies; yes it is sold at a bundle and save 15% or individually. Personally I’m all about saving so I always purchase the bundles.

The Embossing folder is also a sneak peak of the New Boughs & Berries Textured Impressions Embossing Folder in the Holiday catalog. This fold is much bigger than our typical embossing folders it measures 4 1/2″ X 6 3/16″ so it will not fit on a regular A2 card (4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″). But no worries I have videos coming out showing you how to create it 4 x 4 size like on this card today and another video showing you how to make it fit a 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ card front. So tune in next week Tuesday for the 4 X 4 size card show above using the folder.

So today is all about the Brad Bow or Cheater Bow. You will need ribbon and the Candy Dot Brad Bases to make these bows.

Here’s the video tutorial:

How simple was that? This is a great way to make those gorgeous bows quick and easy.
