CFC #134: Writing with Twine


Hello! This CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is to choose a tic tac toe row (down, across, diagonal) and create something amazing using those prompts. For this card I went with DOTS * GRAY * TWINE. For the grey paper with white polka dots, I used 12x12 Amy Tangerine Yes, Please with the yellow stripe edge still attached (super easy). Some glitter hole punches, a foil die-cut and scored flower, and a sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Calm and Gentle.
  



I'm so glad "twine" was a prompt or I never would have thought of writing part of my sentiment with it. I sketched it out with pencil, ran some glue over it, and pushed the twine in. The dot over the "i" is a french knot.

I sure hope you get a chance to play in this challenge, as this will be the last one for 2014. Michele's got some awesome new stamp sets coming out for CAS-ual Fridays and then she'll be working on more goodness for us all to have fun with.

As an added bonus, Michele is offering a $20 CAS-ual Fridays gift certificate to one winner on each of the Girl Friday's blogs. You just need to leave a comment on our posts by Friday, August 22nd. The regular challenge winners AND all the comment-to-win winners will be announced on the CAS-ual Fridays blog on Monday, August 25th.


Thanks SO MUCH for all the creativity, inspiration, and time you've shared with us in the challenge to-date. It's really been such a joy to see your projects, and always so painful to pick a few to feature. Hope to see you there!!

  2. Love the twine writing and what a fantastic mix of patterns too, it's so graphic, especially with the inside pattern peeking out, but the twine softens it and makes it a little rustic.

  7. Love the "Hi". Hadn't thought about using twine for a sentiment on a card but it works great.
    The inside of the card looks fun. I always say "think positive". Like "think happy". Good rule to live by. Enjoy your "break".
