Double D Bow Maker

This card tied for first as the favorite at last week’s stamp camp.  It’s very simple but exceedingly elegant.  It could be used for many occassions and I believe my stampers used all of the sentiments in the Perfectly Penned stamp set to make their card their own.  

I know what you’re thinking.  What about that bow?  Well it just so happens that I have a new toy.  Love new toys.  I got this bow maker from Glenda Galkin, a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from Michigan.  Glenda’s sixth grade son Dean, is making these using the skills he learned in wood shop at school.  If you know anything about me, you know that I am an absolute sap when it comes to helping entrepreneurial kids.  Even better when it fills one of my tool junky squares.

If you’re interested, you can purchase the Double-D Bow Maker at Glenda Galkin’s website. There’s a video that tells the whole story. Once you receive your bow maker, you will be provided a link to a detailed video tutorial that shows several ways to use the bow maker.

Another unique concept about this card is the structure.  The base of the card is 5 ½” x 4 ¼”.  This card is made with Basic Black Card Stock.  The Whisper White Card Stock is cut at 10 ½” by 4”, folded & scored in half and mounted to the Basic Black Card Stock.  I received this card for free as a bonus with my bow maker.  What a deal for the Queen of Copy!
