This week Lawn Fawn and Timeless Twine have teamed up to share projects featuring both companies products. Twine is one of my favorite embellishments to add to a card. It's not bulky. It lies relatively flat and it can add a lot without overwhelming the design.
All this winter weather has got me trying to bring some warmer weather and color into my days wherever I can! This card says "summer", don't ya think?!!!
I used the Mama Elephant Femme Frames die set to die cut a scalloped frame from vellum and the white stitched rectangle from white cardstock. I added a border with the natural Timeless Twine by poking a hole in each corner and threading the string through. I tied it on the back to secure. The effect is subtle but frames up the colorful stamped and die cut elements perfectly!
I stamped and die cut the jar from vellum using the LF Summertime Charm Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies. I stamped the jar again on white cardstock, colored in the lid with colored pencils, blending with Gamsol and cut it out, adhering it over the vellum jar. I wanted the jar to be "see-through" but not the lid. :)
I stamped several strawberries from the LF Summertime Charm Stamp Set and colored them with colored pencils and blended them with Gamsol before die cutting using the Coordinating Dies. I adhered several to the white cardstock background and then placed the vellum jar over the top, being careful to only place adhesive behind the black stamped lines.
I poked holes on either side of the jar using a large needle and threaded through the Strawberry Cupcake Timeless Twine before tying in a bow on the front of the jar.
I stamped and colored in a leaf from LF Blissful Botanicals and the sunflower and leaves from LF Our Friendship Grows. I die cut them with their coordinating dies and adhered them to the card as shown. I added a couple more strawberries embellished with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker.
I felt like the top of the card needed a critter of some kind so I stamped one of the birds from LF Hello Sunshine and colored him in with colored pencils, blending with Gamsol. I really love how he's a mint color to match the card base. ;)
