Twine Love Recipe Swap at the Catered Crop

I’m so excited about the current Catered Crop recipe swap.  It’s TWINE!  You know how I love twine. 

I was tossing around ideas in my head for my card when I found out that I needed a card for a baby shower.    That cinched it.  I immediately knew what I wanted to do.     Rarely does a card end up so similar to the idea that I had.  Yeah! 

 

 

2013-04-03 CC Baby card WM

 

I had a spare piece of white CS that I covered with Scor-tape and then wrapped with twine.   I adhered it to the back of the main panel with the letters die cut out.  The entire piece is mounted to the card base using dimensional dots (Zots).    Of course I threw in some extra texture using my favorite embossing folders and adding stars cut from some spare Starbucks coffee sleeves. 

 

Here is some additional twine love inspiration that Linda put together for you.   Click on the photo to go directly to the Catered Crop Twine Love inspiration board on Pinterest.
