RCC33: Tangled Twine

 blank Challenge icon

Danielle Daws, one of our resident CAS geniuses, is challenging you to use some twine on your creation this week! Any kind of twine is fine, just be sure to add some to your creation!  And who better to sponsor a twine challenge than Whisker Graphics Divine Twine!

For my project this week I made another set of gift tags.  I think I might need some help kicking the tag habit and getting back to making cards.  Although it isn’t life threatening so I’m not too worried!RCC33Challenge_4Group_DLounds

To decorate the tags I used the fun snowflake set: Winter Wonderland from Taylored Expressions.  There is a matching die set that I used to cut out the main snowflake.  I also used some yummy (sounding and looking) Brown Sugar Divine Twine and a bit of crocheted ribbon


I stamped a snowflake in Ice Blue Fluid Chalk Ink and then die cut with a die from the Winter Wonderland Snowflakes die set.  I sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink and then added a touch of Glossy Accents and a dusting of Crystal glitter.  Once dry I stitched a wood button to the center of the snowflake using a short length of the Brown Sugar Divine Twine. 

To decorate the tag base I stamped more snowflake images on green cardstock and layered on Early Espresso cardstock.  I used an edger punch to create a bit of scalloped trim and adhered this piece to the green mat and added a small scrap of designer paper.  I finished my stamping by adding the “No peeking!” sentiment stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.


Before adhering to the tag base with dimensionals tape I added added the crocheted trim and then wrapped the whole piece with the Brown Sugar Divine Twine and tying it into a bow.  To finish I added a metal eyelet and yet more of the same twine! :)
