Day #3 of The Twinery & Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop

The Twinery & Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop Card

Todays is Day #3 of The Twinery & Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop and my chance to join in.

I love Serendipity Stamps and using twine in my card making.  This was a great chance to use both.

“Thanks” Card Directions:

  1. Stamp flower images and leaves onto watercolor paper using black permanent ink.
  2. Water color or color images using markers.
  3. Cut around flowers and leaves.
  4. Paint a thin coat of Diamond Stickles Glue over images for added sparkle.
  5. I started my card by using a 2 1/2″ wide double-sided tape from Kool Tak on a 5″ piece of cardstock.
  6. Closely lay strands of twine onto the super sticky tape to cover the entire piece of paper.
  7. Cut out with a 4″ scalloped square die cut.
  8. Apply die cut square onto cardstock layers.
  9. Glue Flowers and leaves onto front of the card using a fabric glue.  Embellish with adhesive pearls.  Die cut “thanks” from blue cardstock and add to front of card.

Finished Card Size:  5″ x 5″.
