Bakers Twine Cards

As you can see - no new light tent yet.  Our February card swap at Craftmad we had to use Bakers Twine.  I really enjoyed digging through discovering what colours I had…..a majority kindly sent to me by Gail. :-)  This card was nice a simple, in real life the silver card stock has more glimmer to it.  I wrapped the grey bakers twine I had around a chipboard tag, threaded through organza ribbon to attach to the card.  Topped the tag with a delicate 'hello' die cut.

I can not take credit for this design as I spied it on Pinterest which lead me to a full stop at Stamping Connection.  Sorry the photo is so blurred.  I have attached a length of each of my pastel bakers twine colours.  Then added my all time favourite bird stickers from the Sticker Store.  Finished with a little stamped sentiment.

You can see everyone else's take on this swap in our February Craftmad Gallery.
