Stack of Bugs

This is a super cute stack of bugs that could be used for any occasion and was the second in the card class I taught this week. I wanted to show two simple, but effective techniques in one card - the faux bow and scallop trim behind the oval.

The faux bow is actually two lengths of ribbon, one wrapped around the card and the other looped

Then and held into the bow shape with a circle fire rhinestone - back.

With thinner ribbon I would put the brad over the flat piece of ribbon as well, crimping it like a traditionally tied ribbon,  and through to the back of the card. However with the width of this ribbon, I merely adhered the bow to the top of the flat ribbon as it is too bulky to do the other way.

The scallop trim behind the white oval is the flat scallop trim border, snipped at regular intervals

Then stuck onto the back of the oval to frame it, on the Bugs Stack card we used Pear Pizzazz, but for these photos I just grabbed some scrap which happened to be Real Red.

Like to learn nifty techniques, come join us for some fun during our classes, we techniques like these in regular classes not just during the technique classes. Come back tomorrow to see the final card we made in the class.
