I really enjoy using twine on my cards, it really adds a nice touch and is a great alternative to ribbon since it is not quite as bulky. Sweet N Sassy stamps has a wonderful variety of The Twinery twine in the store so you will want to check it out!
If you have already been hopping you should have arrived here from Sheri Twing's blog. If you are just starting here, I invite you to start back at the beginning and hop along with us!
I have 2 cards that I would like to share with you today.
The first is a card that I made during the summer for one of the SNSS kits but never shared yet- gasp!
I used the Seeing Spots set to create a strip and then I cut around the circles to create a scallop edge. I accented the card with honeydew twine.
The second card is a pretty simple Christmas card that would be easy to reproduce.
For this card I stamped the holly image from the Holly Jolly Christmas set randomly to create a background panel with green ink then used candy cane stickles for the berries. I stamped the sentiment beneath my punched border. I wrapped Maraschino twine around the border and then cinched the twine by tying a bow through my button. I love how twine looks when used on buttons!
