We've got a fun new challenge for you over on Let's Craft and Create. We're calling it "EnTWINED" and asking you to use some twine on your creation.
I wanted to do a little more with twine than tie some around my card front and add a bow, but I really had a hard time coming up with something! Finally, I decided to use some twine for the stems of three shamrocks. I used natural twine because of its "woodsy" appearance.
Oh, yes, I forgot to mention that I decided on the placement of my shamrocks first and glued my twine stems down before I added any of the heart shapes.
I made one four-leafer for good luck. You can see that I also added a nice coating of Wink of Stella to that one.
The legend of the shamrock (with three leaves) says that St. Patrick used it to explain the doctrine of the trinity.
As you can see, I still wound my twine around my CS a couple of times and tied a bow. My sentiment is from a thrift store stamp set. The stamped oval is popped up with foam tape.
Now it's your turn. You know you've got all that pretty twine sitting there begging to be used. We're giving you the perfect reason to put it to good use. Now go. Let your mojo take over, and don't forget to link your creation here.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and don't forget to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
