Trendy Twine - Guest Designer, Christi Steinbeck

Ten more days till Christmas!  (But, who is counting, right?)  Christi here from Scrapping For Tranquility with my last Guest Designer post for December.  I always love when Lesley and the gang here at Trendy Twine grace me with this honor!  Who can't resist Trendy Twine's Bakers Twine????  I know it is on the top of my Christmas list!

For my last project I want to share with you another Christmas card I made for a special friend.

I found something similar in a magazine, like my last post, but of course had to make this mine.

I started off with a white base folding it in half and putting a red Piece of AC Card stock on top of this.  I then pulled out my DCWV stack, Winter Solstice for the pattern snow flakes.  I Glued all three down together .  

I brought out my Nested, Stitched Circles from Pink and Main and laid them in the middle of the front of the card.  (making sure to not have the back of my card in the way.)  And ran it through my Big Shot to cut out the 3 inch circle.

Taking a 3 inch die and a 4 inch die I then cut out the frame to go around the circle, and set it aside for later.

Cutting 5 , 3 1/2 inch pieces of Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine, I proceeded to lay ATG Tape around the circle edge then stretching the twine from one side to the other.  Keeping the twine at the top of the circle close together and spread out at the bottom.
When the Twine was laid out I put the ATG tape over the top of the twine edges around the circle edges again to now lay the frame I cut out earlier.  I proceeded to put Glitter Glue around the frame and set aside to dry.
I cut out a 1 1/2 in circle and a shadow for my sentiment and picked out a sentiment from a stamp set I had in my stash.  Once my glitter glue was dry I glued my sentiment on at the bottom of my circle and made a bow out of my Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine and draped it down the sides of my circle.  To finish it off, I added clear snowflakes and added red and blue bling to the centers to match my twine.

Here is what I used from Trendy Twine:

I hope you all have a VERY Merry Christmas and a VERY Happy New Year!
