Our Challenge # 5 just went live! We are featuring "Baker's Twine". And hope you enjoy of inspiration cards! The lucky winner will get a $25.00 gift certificate to use at SP & Company Store!
Just a note about Baker's Twine. It is 100% cotton that makes it very easy to work with. It is two threads twisted to form gorgeous colorful twine that will enhance and embellish cards, scrapbooks and 3-D products. My brain is just swirling with all kinds of ideas that can make any project "POP"!
Have you ever tried it? I have had mine for awhile and was excited to have an opportunity to pull out some tools and see what I could do! I used my leaf We R Memory Keeper paper piercing tool and used my twine to create leafs. I then used my red/white Baker's Twine to create french knots to look like flowers. My mother taught me to embroidery as a child. I remember sitting by her side and learning "french knots". I rapped the thread around my needle three times and re-entered the same hole and pulling it through to the back. It is amazing how I am now remembering all those little tricks my mother taught me!
I used 120# whet paper for my card base. I layers some green from my stash and accented with the beautiful new designer paper called Sweet Girl - Sweet Clover paper from S&P Company.
Tip: If your Baker's Twine color is not quite what you are looking for….. wrap the twine single layer around some cardboard. Color across the twine at a slight angle with a Copic marker in the color of your choice. This will allow you to match your colors perfectly! I did this with my green leaves.
