CardMaker-The Twinery Blog Hop!!!

Hello Everyone!!!

Welcome to CardMaker- The Twinery blog hop!!
You all are familiar with the gorgeous Twinery Twines...if you are not here is a bit of info about the Twinery twines...
Our twine is made from 100% cotton (and some of our twine is twisted with gorgeous metallic string!) and made in the USA. Whether you're gift wrapping, crafting or tying up baked goods to give to a friend, our baker's twine adds a fresh, yet nostalgic look to any project at hand! Our baker's twine comes in an assorted array of delicious colors and is uniquely twisted against a bright white hue, creating an eye-popping burst of color and a creative embellishment! Our twine has lots of color which lends to a fun, candy-striped look.

To check out the fab collection of twines visit THE TWINERY SHOP.

If you are here from Tobi Crawford's blog, you are right on track, if you are joining me now please visit CardMaker Blog to start from the beginning.

Today I have two CAS cards to share with you.
First one is perfect for this time of the year...
These solid twines are amazing... love the rich colors!!

I just created a simple twine wreath by adhering the twines in circle, I used Multi Media Matte , this glue works great with the twines.

This card is for the following challenges..
AAA -  Thanksgiving.
Simply Create Too -  Thanksgiving/Thank you
Crafting By Designs - Give thanks.

 I used the same solid twines for my next card too...
This time I used the twine to make a gradient background. 

I used double side adhesive sheet for this technique. Its super simple to do, just cover the area with double sided tape or sheet, cut the twines and adhere.

This card is for the following challenges..
CAS on Sunday - Ribbon/twine.
Stampin' Royalty -  Thanks.

Hope you liked these cards...hop with us for tons of Twine-tastic inspirations!!
