Happy Sunday, Friends! So glad to have you stop by today as we celebrate Handmade Holidays! Today you’ll see inspiration from many Twinery DT members, all with absolutely stunning projects (no, really. I saw them, they’re AWESOME)!
Christmas came early for me – I was fortunate enough to receive some goodies from Fiskars to play with! I simply LOVE punches! They’re easy to use, portable, and usually create many cuts quickly. I used a Snowflake, Ornamental squeeze punch and Tag Lever XXL punch and the Lacy Doubles border punch to create a homespun card that is as simple to create as it is festive.
Remember covering books with brown paper bags? That was my inspiration as I wrapped a gift with a grocery bag and tied with twine in the perfect winter color combo – Shore and Cappuccino. I used scraps from the left over bag to create a scalloped panel using the Lacy Doubles punch cartridge (I love the cartridge system – so smart and easy to store!).
After adhering my “paper bag” panel, I placed a strip of washi tape for interest and pattern. I then punched out my snowflakes, and added a bit of Martha Stewart carrara marble glitter glue and MS coarse gliter to give it some sparkle and shine! After that, I added my tag, stamped a cheery sentiment from “Essential Holiday Elegance” and topped it off with some Cappuccino twine to tie the package and card together. I had a sheet of cardstock stickers with this fun little tree that worked perfectly to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoyed the inspiration shared today! Be sure to visit The Twinery’s Blog for even more projects and details on how you could WIN your choice of three spools! Enjoy your day! xo Angelica
