Our Stories

Today I am sharing a simple birthday card using two of my favorite trims: Baker's Twine and Chevron Twill. Even more cool is that the twill is in a 1/4" size! I love petite little things, so was very happy to see the smaller size twill in the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store.
The images in this stamp set (Fresh Fruit by Stampin' Up!) are actually made to stamp "shaded." It's brand new to me, so when I stamped the pears I was saying, "Why isn't this stamping solid??!" and I colored in the pears then with a marker. But when the leaves did the same thing, I finally figured it out haha!

The card is actually wrapped twice with both the Coral Baker's Twine and the 1/4" Celery Chevron Twill. I then tied a simple bow with the twine.
