Hello everyone! Today, I’m popping in to share a few cards with you that I created for Lawn Fawn’s collaboration week with Timeless Twine. How gorgeous are those baker’s twine colors? I chose to work with Raspberry Lemonade and Key Lime Sorbet. (Delish!) I’m definitely in love!
For my first card, I created a garden scene. (Guess who’s got a serious case of Spring Fever?) The sunshine from the Spring Showers Lawn Cuts die set and some flowers from Penelope’s Blossoms work beautifully with the Scripty Hello die-cut greeting and the twine “leaves”. Yes, I know there are no stems; I was going for a stylistic look (Hee!). As a side note, because I always want to know, here are the ink colors I used for the flowers: Strawberry Slush and Costal Cabana.
Next up? A little Let’s Roll action! The twine makes for a fun, stitched “bamboo” background, and I grounded the images further with a bit of Hello Sunshine paper slipped in between the twine blocks. The trick with this technique is to score a haphazard grid on your card first, then pierce holes at the intersections for stitching. Alternate the high and low horizontal slates, and there you go! Colors used: Crisp Cantaloupe for the shrimp roll, Baked Brown Sugar for the board, and Marina Mist for the sushi’s smiley face and the greeting.
Be sure to follow the Lawn Fawn blog all week for even more ways to use this fabulous twine!
