Friends card with lots of die cuts

Dies R Us has an amazing mix of dies plus many other products. I am starting by sharing lots of die cuts from their collection. On this specific card I went for lots of paper and accent colours but love the white die cut pieces with the black die cut sentiment.

Supply List:
Paper & Chipboard: The Rubber Buggy BFS Wanderlust Collection
Twine: Whisker Graphics
Other: cardstock, brads, ink, bling

When starting a card I pull papers, cut dies and prep the accent pieces. 

I am going to share my twine tied bow. I hate single strand bows. I start with double piece of twine.

Then starting at the centre I tie a standard bow using double twine.

Do not make your loops too big. It's for a smaller accent on this card.  When you decide how big you want the bow and how wide you want the loops pull tight. When they are not perfect and still a bit too big.... with a finger on the centre part of the knot pressing down firmly.... grab one end and pull until the loop is the size you want. Repeat on other side.

Now that they are smaller and closer to the same size I pull loops evenly to tighten one more time so they don't move.

I now cut of the excess ends and it's ready to glue to my card.

Here are some close ups for better viewing and details. I used foam pop ups to add height and depth to the centre chipboard and added the bow on top.

Here is the the die cuts... they are perfect for this card.

Bottom corner I added 3 black brads to coordinate with the sentiment colour.

Any friend would love this card to say hello.
