Simple Twine Love...

to view the image up-close, please click on the photo
Every once in a while, I like to make a very clean and simple card. It's a hard thing to do, especially when I have drawers and boxes filled with crafting supplies. This week's Scrappy Saturday Twine Challenge got me thinking of going simple, and when coupled with the Valentine's Day Challenge at the Paper Players, I figured I could come up with something clean and sweet. I used the "LOVE" sentiment from the Wreath of Love petite set from Taylored Expressions -- I just, well, LOVE it when a sentiment pretty much says it all!

SPILLING THE BEANS
  1. Make card from cardstock.
  2. Using paper-piercing tool, pierce heart shaped patterns in cardstock.
  3. Thread twine and stitch along pattern. 
  4. Stamp sentiment.
  5. Wrap twine around card, tie bow.
