Matching Thank You Card & EPB Gift Pouch

Hello, Crafters.

I'm pleased to say that my BOGOF had a good start yesterday, which

 made all the effort of correcting it when it went wrong on Friday evening, 

worth the very late night!
After the event went live yesterday lunchtime, I was able to do

 some crafting and made today's video.

 It was so relaxing, I made two sets of matching cards and

gift pouches before I started recording! 

I'm so pleased that it didn't take long before I felt the stress of 

the previous evening melt away, and it became a 

long distant memory! LOL!

 I made some similar thank you cards for last month's customers, 

and it was the way I did the faux bow that I'd decided I wanted

 to share as part of a video.
  I first saw the idea several years ago but I can't 

remember who showed it. 
To cut the Designer Series Paper (DSP) into 1.25" squares, and 

the Balmy Blue Cardstock (CS) into 1 3/8" squares, I used two 

retired Stampin' Up! square punches - cheating but so much

 easier than actually cutting!

 I decided to dry emboss the white layer behind the squares as

 I was doing white on white and I knew it would

 help it to stand out more. 
I used two different arrangements for the pearls I added 

to the sentiments i.e. one had three large Basic Pearls and 

the other one had two medium pearls with a large

 one in-between them. 

I wish you a very blessed Sunday, 

and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
