The Twinery

For my first two cards, I kept a Christmas theme! On the first one, I decided to keep a simple wrapped present as my main theme. I just love how the Twinery twine can transform anything very simply.
 
For the second card, I decided to use various colors of twine in different ways. I love how I was able to braid the twine, so that I could add a cute scarf to the snowman. I then stitched the tree decorations, and tied little bows for each present.
For the last card, I used my new favorite Authentique line... GATHERING! I used my diecut machine to cut out a heart, and then placed a smaller heart in the center, tying twine around the smaller heart. This is a really simple card, but I really like it. I added a little bit of chalk ink for detail, a Noteable message and a button.
I hope you enjoyed my cards today! Make sure that you continue the hop at Deena Neimat's website!! Have fun!
