Golden Mesh

 Sometimes an idea looks so much better in my head than in real life. This is a prime example. The baker's twine did not behave the way I imagined. Still, once the card is made, I sell, send, or store it. In this case, I sold it. I will find a better use for my twine in the future. Thoughts?

I stamped and punched out a few flowers using my Flower Shop stamp set and the Pansy Punch. 

I grabbed the gold mesh from my stash and decided it would make a nice divider for my background.

I used Basic Black for the top half of my card and the Cottage Wall DSP for the bottom half. I glued these onto my Rich Razzleberry card front.

I then grabbed my gold baker's twine and did my best to have it swirl up and down behind the gold mesh. The gold mesh was then adhered to the card front to hide the paper seam. It didn't quite turn out the way I imagined, but I did want to use the gold mesh that was gifted to me by a dear friend.

I then added the flowers using dimensionals. I placed a pearl in the center of each flower.

The leaves were sitting on my table top, so I added them. 

Lastly, I stamped and punched my sentiment, and added the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. I love the colors and layout. I like looking for a way to use bakers twine. I recently did the bakers twine technique on a dog card and really loved how that came out and it was so much easier than I imagined it would be.

  2. Such a creative design, Sally. Your card is very pretty!
