Make It Monday #302 - Twine & Ribbon Wraps

Hello friends.  Playing along with Stephanie's Make It Monday challenge where she's using twine AND ribbon on her card.

Not sure I met the challenge exactly, but I was bound and determined to use my Mix & Mat: Pinked Edge dies, and did wind the twine through the leaf die cut...just a little hard to see!



I started with a white leaf embossed panel (Thanks Bonnie!!) and then mounted the Mix & Mat: Pinked Edge die cut in Honey Nut cs on top with dimensionals underneath to prop it up a bit.  I wound my twine underneath and came up through the top where the Tiny Tag is.  The leaf on the tag is from Autumn Scarecrow.  I added a cup of hot cocoa (sorry, NOT a coffee lover!) from Sunny Studio (Mug Hugs) that was blended with Blueberry Sky Ink and then embossed another leaf in copper from the Autumn Scarecrow set.  A rust colored ribbon was tied around the handle of the mug to incorporate some ribbon.


You can check out Stephanie's beautiful card and FUN video and play along right HERE.

I am also entering this card into the Inspired By All The Little Things #70 challenge, which is what inspired my colors, the leaves, and the mug on this card.  You can play along HERE.


Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  21. Beautiful texture and colors for your Fall thank-you Card, Marcia! Love that Mat and Honey Nut Card stock (both on my wish list). Your pretty mug and twine bow finish it perfectly. Feel like I’m in MN or MI with snow falling out our windows. Pretty rare for Western WA...thank goodness. Could be a long winter!
