Holiday Cards Tied Up With String

PTI's December 2013 Blog Hop was all about tying up projects using string. Twine has taken a big leap in the crafting industry by being used in lieu of ribbon. Some of my holiday cards were finished off by wrapping twine around the edge. Here's one:

This card went together quickly using Echo Park's Winter Wonderland paper cut at an angle, stamping in black the sentiment from PTI's In The Meadow stamp set, adhering red sequins randomly and tying a bow of red/white twine around the front of the card base. This is a 4.25" square card.

Edited to Add: Also entering this in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge here using anything sparkly such as glitter, gems, stickles, glimmer sprays, paints, etc.

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: SU Soft Sky & Echo Park's Winter Wonderland patterned paper
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: In The Meadow
Other: Red sequins (Joann's) and Twinery Twine

I have seen all of your blog hop entries, and they are all just wonderful. I think this is my favorite--I have that paper too, and I love those snowmen. Cool angles, too. Lately, I am all about the angles.
