The design team at Trendy Twine has a little something up its sleeve today: a surprise birthday party for Lesley, the owner. Today is her big day and to celebrate, we've each made birthday cards for her, which we mailed earlier this week.
Each team member is spotlighting Lesley's card on our blogs today. This is the card I made.
I tied a bit of Twisted Lime twine around the chipboard vase then curled it for a decorative effect. To curl the twine, I wet the twine with a glue medium and rolled it around a toothpick to dry. When I removed the toothpick, the twine held its curlicue shape.
The team invites you to join the party with a hop to each blog. You'll find lots of great tips with twine along the way and a few prizes too.
The next stop on the hop is Jamie. If you get lost, just pop over to the Trendy Twine blog for the full lineup.
The prize on this stop is 20 yards of holiday twine.
You'll get 5 yards each of the holiday colors: Berry, Holly and Holly Berry plus 5 yards of Orange Truffle which we are featuring this month (not pictured). To enter the drawing, follow this blog and leave a comment here on this post by 9 pm EST on Tuesday, Nov. 20. A winner will be chosen by random.org and posted here on Wednesday, Nov. 21.
Happy birthday, Lesley!
