Trendy Baker's Twine - Black and White Cards

Hi and welcome, everyone! 

Guest Designer Lisa from The Relativity of Paper

Today I'm sharing black and white cards featuring one of October's Showcase Products, Gray Licorice Trendy Twine. Since I'm featuring Trendy Twine that is gray and black I thought black and white cards would be perfect and it gives me a chance to show you how easy these cards can be. 

The Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set has a lot of thankful sentiments that can be used year round. 
I decided to work with the So Thankful sentiment. This is a great guy card and super simple.

I laid black in down on an embossing folder, inserted a 4.125" x 5.25" white cardstock, carefully close the folder and run through Big Kick. Tip: If you lay the cardstock on the opposite side of the ink and secure it with post-it tape you can re-ink the embossing folder and run it back through if you need to.
Die-cut a piece of black cardstock to fit the sentiment; lay down some anti-static powder on black cardstock, stamp sentiment using VersaMark and heat set white embossing powder. 
Add fun foam to the back if the embossed white cardstock, wrap Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and tie a knot, adhere to a 4.25"x5.5" card base, add the sentiment over twine using 3D mounting foam, finish off with a few clear sequins.


This next card is just die-cutting white cardstock, layering it over black cardstock, stamp the sentiment on the bottom right corner, offset the bottom half of the die-cut and add 3D mounting foam, wrap Gray Licorice Trendy Twine around securing in place on 3D mounting foam, adhere to card base. I just iridescent drops to finish off the card.  
The sentiment can be found on the Let It Snow Stamp Set. This set has a lot of great sentiments.


I did the same process of adding ink to an embossing folder and running it through the BigKick. 
I used white ink on black cardstock and ran it through several times each time adding more ink. I love the way the ink pulled giving it a crackled look.  I decided to add clear embossing all over the white ink and heat set to really bring out that crackled look. 

I wrapped the Gray Licorice Trendy Twine around the card base, added 3D mounting foam to the back of the embossed black cardstock, stamped the Happy Thanksgiving sentiment from the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set. So easy.
