Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!  Today we have a special post over on the Trendy Twine blog to share some Mother's Day projects.  For my project, I created a purse style gift card holder and card set.  The purse closes on top with a velcro and is the perfect size to insert a gift card.  I used some elegant papers from the DCWV Everlasting Love Stack which coordinated perfectly with the Black Licorice Trendy Twine.  I used the twine to frame the border on both the purse and card.  I also created a purse handle with the twine by doubling it up and slightly twisting the 2 strands to keep them together.
The purse was embellished with a flower brad.  I cut a coordinating tassel out of the same paper, embellished it with a bit of washi tape and hung it off of the brad with a bit more twine.  The card is a 3x3 size which can also be tucked inside the purse.  The sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Dancing in Circles 2 (retired) stamp set was stamped on a couple of scalloped circles.  A small flower with a bling center was the finishing touch on the card.
Please head over to the Trendy Twine blog to check out all of the amazing projects created by my design team sisters.  Also, remember to check out the gorgeous twine and craft supplies available in the store.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a Happy Mother's Day!
