Lily Pad Creations


Last weekend I took part in The Twinery Blog Hop.  After seeing so many great creations using twine I decided to make some cards myself using twine.  I had received some twine a while ago along with the Lily Pad CCC card I was sent, but I hadn't used it yet.  Now was my chance to put it to good use.  (Thank you Jeane).  These were the two creations I came up with.

The first card is for another Lily Pad card challenge exchange for November and December - CCC.  For this card I decided to make a Christmas card and use the sketch.

Christmas ornaments

I gold embossed the ornaments from The Craft's Meow (The Merry Best set) onto a circle cut with spellbinders, edged in a red circle to make it stand out.  I added the swiss dots embossed background for texture.  The sentiment is also from The Craft's Meow from the Season's Greeting set.  I also added some twine.

For my second card I used a different sketch.  This one is also for a Lily Pad Card challenge.  It is The Craft's Meow Presents a Sketch Challenge. 

(Sorry I don't seem to be able to download the sketch.  I will try again later, but you can view it here)


I masked the HA writing stamp so it would only stamp on the right side of the card and added the sentiment on the left. I used my cuttlebug to emboss a strip of purple card with some texture and added the twine for effect. Lastly I added the butterflies (kindly sent to me from Betty) and added some rhinestones.

Thanks for taking a look and as always, I really appreciate your comments.
