Technique Tuesday: Twine Time

 There are so many things you can do with twine.  You can make a clothesline or strings for balloons.  Sometimes you can also make things more interesting.  For today, I am using twine to add dimension and texture to my card.

For this card I chose to use the linen thread.  I love the texture and neutral color.  Many people I know have trouble making masculine cards, and this thread is perfect.

I used the Label Framelits to cut a frame and then wrapped it with the linen thread.  This makes a wonderful rustic frame.  The wrapping took a little time, but it did give me something to do while waiting at the doctor's office!

The wood grain seemed like a perfect fit to go with the rustic feel and the tree stamp.  This card is masculine enough for any father.  What will you do with twine?
