Ok, back to the subject at hand. Here's a thank you card using Friendship Preserves...this box. A small paper stack, random ribbon, and a few choice embellishments. No Big Shot, no Framelits :) So I hand cut a couple layers around the stamped image, which was colored with Stampin' Write Markers.
A few of those awesome new Vintage Faceted Buttons and some Baker's Twine are all I added. I curled the Baker's Twine to mimic the grapevines on the stamp. Here's how I did mine...
Just rub a little Crystal Effects along the twine, wipe most of it off, and loosely wind it around a pencil. I let mine sit overnight, but it takes a good 1/2 hour. Or you can use a hair dryer to speed it up!
I'm playing along with 2 awesome challenges for this card!
Stamping 411 for the sketch - click on the sketch to visit their post...
...And Create With Connie & Mary for the color combo, although I may be disqualified for the pop of Gumball Green in there! Still, the challenge was great, I think the colors are Fab-U-Lous!
