Paper Crafting Card Making with Bow

The Mini Bowdabra and Ruler are wonderful paper-crafting tools to use in your card making crafts. The bow making kit helps you to make beautiful bows for all your cards.

As winter draws to a close, here in the northeast we start to have “warm winter wishes”! I found inspiration for my card looking through some old books. I loved the image of a couple ice-skating on the cover of a book, published in 1897. I pencil sketched the image and layered it on a handmade card.
