Simple Sunday #16 - Wrapping twine

This week I am sharing a new Simple Sunday project and this time I did my card using some hemp twine and some wood veneers. Really clean and easy with a "natural" feel to it.

I am using a standard European A6 cardbase as usual and I used kraft cardstock this time. I also cut a piece of white cardstock about 1/4" smaller on each side to get a frame around it. I used four colors of natural hemp twine ranging from light cream to dark brown and I wrapped these around my card to get a gradient effect. For my sentiment I used a die from Spellbinders and cut that out from a piece of cardstock that I embossed with a golden glitter embossing powder. Finally I added some woon veneer hearts from some extra interest.

And that was all I did this time and I hop you like it. If you want to know more about my process just take a look at the video down below and feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions.

I also filmed a tutorial for this card that you can find on my YouTube channel or here below.
