Kraft and Twine Card

Hello Everybody!

I am playing with all of my new fun things that I got at Christmas!  Plus I went to the scrapbook store and couldn't help myself!  But I did exercise some caution so I didn't come back home with way way more stuff--just a litte bit more stuff ;)

The card I have here I am entering into 3 challenges:

CAS-ual Fridays: CFC33 Create a clean and simple project using Kraft and Twine

Simon Says Stamp:  Anything goes!

Wee Memories:  WMC80 Anything Goes!

So here's my card...Scroll on down and I'll show you what I did!

Here is my blank Kraft canvas.

Here's my blank chipboard canvas. ;)  I painted them white (which I don't have a picture of but trust me, I painted them.)

Here is a little treat I got from my local scrapbook store.  Lime green twine by My Mind's Eye.  Fun!

So after my chipboard letters dried, I wrapped the twine around them.  I used a little glue on the front and taped the back with the winding piece.  Here is the dot of the eye.  I used a clothes pin to help the glue dry.

Here is the back of the h.

Here's the front.

I adhered the letter with Glossy Accents to the Kraft card.  Then using a fine black pen I doodled a frame around the edges.

I have Martha Stewart twine-which I like-but I found the twine from My Mind's Eye to be a little thicker.  So I thought that was cool and I would tell you in case you are shopping around for twine.  :)

Until next time my friends...enjoy the last days of December...and 2011!
