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.
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.
