AmberINK Birthday Challenge

The latest AmberINK INKredible 21 Day challenge is to create anything birthday-related. (Amber herself recently celebrated hers!) I wanted to do something more than a card, and thought of Emily's terrific paper bow that she made when she was an orange torchbearer. Here's my birthday take on it:


This bow is even easier than it looks! Especially if you follow the step-by-step instructions here. I once again used my very favourite AmberINK iPaper, Spin Pin: Holiday -- Black Tie. It's just so classy-looking. I used both the regular size and the tiny version, although you can't really tell in the end result. Then I used a square of the regular size to make a matching gift card. I really like how the birthday sentiment fits in one of the circles of the paper. I plan to use the bow and card on a parcel wrapped in silver paper. I think it will look so elegant! I'll just have to make sure the present inside is worthy!

Supplies: (bow) AmberINK Spin Pin: Holiday-Black Tie iPaper regular & tiny, brad; (mini-card) white & black cardstock, AmberINK Spin Pin: Holiday-Black Tie iPaper regular, Studio G stamp, Versafine onyx black ink Pin It Now!

Awesome! I love this ipaper, too -- and what you've done with it.
(Also, excellent use of the word "parcel" -- that's one we don't see every day!)

LOVE this, Lindsey!! Very classy indeed, and I love the way you stamped the sentiment directly on the white circle of that fabulous iPaper!

Your bow and your card definitely look classy and will be very elegant on silver paper. Black and white is a great colour scheme to feature, thanks for the inspiration.
