Add a Bow!

Todays challenge at House of Cards is to "add a bow" to your creation.

Instead of stamping a card I decided to use twine and do a little weave before adding a key and bow to it.  It still keeps within the Clean and Simple lines but adds a punch.
I started with a length of twine and taped it to the back of the CS.  Then I began weaving it from back to front and then back again until I had three loops formed on the front of the card.
Then with a second smaller piece of twine I created a bow and added a little key to the front.

Clean and Simple doesn't always have to be stamped and I hope that this card has given you inspiration to try something different in the clean and simple style.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out our other great Designers, who I know have some very special cards in store for you.
