Step 1

Create a card base with the Kinetic Circle Die in Black Mat Cardstock.

Die cut the layering pieces with the outside cutting die of the Kinetic set.
(Remember to cut two circular ones). Apply the distress ink working in circular motions to the edges of the paper using a sponge or a blending tool.

Step 3

Use the ribbon to create a bow. Wrap the ribbon around the bigger piece of layer as shown.

Step 4
