Got a couple cards for you today in honor of the Handmade Holidays Event going on at The Twinery. Today culminates the event, which features over 175 holiday projects being shared over 3 days.
To learn more about the event, hit The Twinery’s blog. Lots of cool stuff to see.
I’m happy to be using some products today from a couple of the companies participating in the event: The Twinery; Fiskars and Tombow.
So enough chat, let’s get on with the cards, shall we?! 🙂
Meet Card. No. 1.
The white and silver sparkly tags were so fun to make. Here’s what I did.
I punched a snowflake out of paper with a punch from Fiskars. (white and silver)
Then, I took a larger tag punch and lined it up to frame the snowflake.
The end result was something like this.
Which eventually became this. 🙂
And here’s Card No. 2.
I often get asked how I get the twine to stay down on my page.
Here’s a little trick. I love using Tombow’s Mono Multi adhesive for it. Love it.
I squirt a little on scratch paper.
Then, I just bring the scratch paper under the twine and gently brush it onto the twine by sliding it & the glue under the twine.
Works like a charm!
That’s all for now. Be sure to comment on The Twinery’s Blog and check out the Handmade Holidays Event.
Lots of prizes up for grabs, including a package of 3 spools of twine from The Twinery (winner’s choice what colors!)!
Ps… Wondering what’s up with 25 in 25 for today?
Well, I’m counting today’s cards as a combined #7 for my take on the challenge. Cool with that, Ashley? 😉
