Guest Designer: Christine Drogt from Create A Smile

Hi everyone,

this is Christine from Create A Smile :)
I am honored to be Guest Designing here today. I've been using Trendy Twine for quite a while because I loooove the quality and the colors (multicolored bakers twine - give me some more!) and fortunately Lesley Ann liked my projects - so I got an invitation to be guest - yay!

The Idea behind:

It's pretty simple: i wanted to show that the combo of Trendy Twine and Create A Smile products can be used for both: Fun and elegant cards. So I made two very different, yet simple cards :)

These are the two cards that I created:

1) Fun and cute:

2) Classy and elegant

Here's a close up so you can see the twine a little better:

Instructions/ Ideas:
  • use your trendy twine to put it on tags, add a backdrop underneath your focal point or to add some interest to a die cut pattern. Make it bold or go subtile :)
  • I think all the other steps are quite obvious: Stamp your image, color it, fuzzy cut it and assemble the cards ;)
