I saw the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge & thought, hey, I know that Friday Sneak Peek! Sorry, girls, it’s unmistakable. The Epic Movie of Gone With The Wind. Man, like hasn’t everybody (well except my DH) seen it like a dozen times?
So I got to work on a card for Gone with the Wind. As I was musing, I couldn’t get that goofy sketch from the Carol Burnett Show out of my head. Any 30-something’s remember it? Anyways, I was stuck on the Green Dress, either Vivian Leigh’s or Carol’s Curtain Rod. Oh man, that costume was too funny.
Here’s my Christmas Card:
Okay the bow: Easy Peasy, or as “it’s a Good Thing” or whatever, but I did NOT come up with it. I saw it here on Step By Step Crafting Lessons and here on Diana Gibbs site, just to name a few amazing crafter girls. This is my take on the “fork” bow.
Before you think we’re some kind of odd giants, I’m using a massive serving fork here for easy of photos. Weave the ribbon through:
and weave it back:
and through & back and if you have a medium size ribbon, it’ll only make 5 rows.
Take a separate piece of matching ribbon & poke through a the bottom, middle tine.
Bring that same ribbon up and through at the top middle tine.
Nice eh? Not quite done.
Pull off of the fork, TAH-DAH:
I used the same “fork” bow technique on this card. However, because it was a narrower ribbon, I wrapped it a bit more, so more loops to the bow. I’m not really happy with the card, well, because I can’t do sunset cards. I’ve looked at tutorials & well I am terrible at it. But I will keep trying. Any hints, please let me know. I think I just use to many inks & the clouds are too light & kids are “wanting to help” too. (can I blame them, any excuse will do LOL)
Haven’t put a card/scrappage/paper craft together for this challenge? You have until Thursday! Go for it, it’s just too much fun.
