Well here is my take on it!

This month it is a real challenge for me I decided to make a Napkin Fold Card
I have never made 1 before, but this is going to 1 of many.  
I loved making this Card and its Banner



For my main card I used a 12 x 12 Hammered White Card
I layered it with Orange Gingham 12 x 12 DP
and a 12 x 12 Plain Orange DP

For my banner I also used the white hammered card stock and layered with the 
Gingham and Plain  Orange DP
I used a Flourish Medallion SweetCuts Die
and layered it on Orange DP 
I made this lovely bow from the same DP paper
The center of my bow is the circle center that was left after
I cut this same die for the inside of my card into 4 corners
I added a Orange Gem to the center

The inside of my Napkin Card I used the lovely Daisy Center Medallion SweetCuts Die
I added a Orange Gem in the center
My corners I created by cutting the Flourish Medallion SweetCuts Die
into 4 pieces and saved the round circle in the middle for my bow

This lovely bow I created with the Envelope Punch Board
I cut a strip of the Orange DP Paper into a length of 7 1/8 X 1 inch
I punched at the 1 1/2 inch mark and 3 1/2 in mark flipped the paper 
and again at the 1 1/2 inch mark
Do this on both sides

Punch the tales of the bow

Stretch the 2 middle bits of the bow with a bone folder

Glue the bow tales underneath the middle of the bow, 
make sure that the negative side does not show

Add a something to the center of your bow

If you wish to layer your Bow you can create a layer

Layer for Bow
I cut a strip of white card  3 1/4 X 1 1/4 inch
Used my Punch Board and cut at 1.1/8 inch mark on the punch board both sides
and punched the ends to make the tags
This formed my base layer of my Orange Bow just for another layer to make my Bow pop.

 Add your bow to your layer and finish the bow off
by adding a decorative detail to the center of the bow

If any further questions regarding this bow please just email me.
