Hello all! It's Julie Ranae here with you with just
a quick idea for Christmas card design.
Before I get to Christmas....
I just want to say how very thankful I am to have the
privilege to be the Design Team Coordinator for
This past year has been such a fabulous adventure and I
am so very blessed to be staying on and
I am looking forward to what 2012 brings.
We are on the lookout for a variety of new designers
to join us...could it be you?
Our 2012 Design Team Call is open for less
than 48 more hours.
If you have a blog...love to design...love to inspire...
we invite you to apply!
For all the details, check out our post HERE!
I don't know about you, but I am not able to create that
25th hour in a day that is sometimes needed to enjoy
the creative process. So I look for easy ways to use our baker's
twine as an accent on my cards. This design goes a little
'beyond' just an accent, but it ends up being so easy,
that you can take this design idea and use it with just
about any rubber stamps and die cuts that you own.
After stamping the main image, I then stamped it once
again on white cardstock and cut out the trees and placed them
over where the original trees would be.
From there, it was simply layering our 'Stone' baker's twine
as a continuous frame around the image.
I am having a great time using
glitter glue as an accent on many of my twine projects as
well, and that's what I've done here on the 'snow-covered'
hills where the trees stand.
I recently shared another project here at The Twinery
using the same idea with glitter glue...here is a snippet...
You can find the completed project HERE.
I hope you will take the opportunity to use our baker's twine
on your holiday projects this season. A great way to get
started is with our
'Ultimate Color Sampler'
15 yards of all 14 of our beautiful colors!
It also makes a terrific gift!
Thanks so much for coming by today...
we look forward to your next visit with us soon!
