Guest Designer for Trendy Twine

I am back over for my second guest design day for Trendy Twine.  Trendy Twine is showcasing the Blue Berry twine this month so I have a card to share created with this beautiful twine.
This shaped card was created using the Kate's ABC's cartridge.  I took the butterfly jar cut on the cartridge and welded it using my Gypsy to create this card.
I discarded the dragonflies from the die cuts and just used the butterflies.  The centers of each of the butterflies were adhered to the card and I lifted up the wings to give them some dimension.
For the butterfly bodies, I started with a strand of twine and wrapped twine over the single strand and knotted the beginning and the end of the twine.  For the small butterfly I used a single piece of twine without wrapping it.
The butterflies were all finished off with some bling.  I used my white gel pen on the greenery for the card.
The top of the jar was also embellished with some twine by wrapping it around the top and finishing off with a twine bow topped off with a kraft button.
Remember the "You Make Our Hearts Flutter" challenge going on over at Trendy Twine, please click here for details.


  1. Super cute butterfly card. Thanks for sharing how you made the body of the butterfly. I was wondering what you wrapped the twine around. This blueberry is a great color.
