A Pair of "Fancy" Cards {Waffle Flower Crafts}

Hello friends and Happy Tuesday,

I took a quick weekend trip down to Columbus, Ohio.  Columbus is about 2 hours south of where I live just a bit north of Akron, and on the way down, I must have heard Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" every 30 minutes (love Top 40 radio!).

Anyway, with that song firmly ingrained in my head, I decided to revisit the very fancy Waffle Flower Crafts Bowtiful and Bowtiful Additions stamp sets.

First up, and this one is for the guys, a dashing black tie card using Bowtiful Additions stamp set and Bowtiful die set.

I die cut a triangle pennant (Spellbinders) from white card stock and notched the corners.  Next, I adhered the pennant to a black cardstock rectangle.  Notice that the notched pennant extends past the top of the black rectangle.  I stamped the solid bow from the Bowtiful Additions stamp set on white card stock and die cut it using the larger Bowtiful dies.  I attached it to the card using foam tape.  

I stamped and heat embossed "Hey Handsome" also from the Bowtiful Additions stamp set on the black card stock. 

I added a few black pearls to the pennant to act as buttons.  Finally, I adhered the finished panel to a white card stock base. 

Next, a "fancy" card for the ladies using gray, cream and gold and the ever fabulous Bowtiful stamp set and Bowtiful dies

On a panel of gray card stock, I stamped the random star pattern repeatedly to create a background.  I kept rotating the stamp to keep the pattern truly random.  I adhered the gray panel to a cream card stock base.

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with gold powder on a cream card stock strip with an angled side.  I stamped and embossed the smaller bow and die cut it with the coordinating die.  The sentiment strip and bow were attached to the card with foam tape.  A few gold star sequins add just a bit more fancy to the card. 

This fancy card was also inspired by Waffle Flower's very first challenge for June/July.   There is a sketch challenge and a technique challenge.  You can check out all the details here and you have until July 25th to enter!
