Using Baker's Twine

Hi there, friends.  It's Karen here again.  Those of you who know me best are aware by now that I absolutely LOVE Baker's Twine.  You also likely know that I tend to tie it around many (most) of my cards and projects.  I simply can't resist.  Baker's Twine is an incredibly affordable trim  - at just ten cents per yard - and it comes in so many beautiful colors included stripes and solids.  I tend to use it a lot because I know I can always find the perfect color to accent every project.

The black base was cut using a Triangle Cover Plate and I stamped my card using a (retired) Papertrey Ink Stamp Set called Petite Pots (also retired).  I used several colors of Tim Holtz Oxide Inks to stamp all the pretty pots, stems and flowers.  I wanted the stamping and sentiment to be the focal points of the card.  By adding Baker's Twine, I can give my card that depth and texture it needs without overwhelming the beauty of the stamping.  It's always a perfect touch.
The card is very simple, but it still need just a bit of trim and I thought the Solid Plum Baker's Twine and the Solid Black Baker's Twine were the perfect touches for this sweet card.  I can still easily slide this card into a mailing envelope.  That's yet another reason why I love Baker's Twine so much - you can still mail cards that use Baker's Twine.  Another reason to LOVE Baker's Twine.
I made a quick and easy matching tag for this card so that the recipient could use it as a bookmark.  I stamped the same floral images as on the card using the same PTI Petite Pots Stamp Set.  As I did with the card, I wrapped the tag with some beautiful Baker's Twine.  This includes some of the Solid Plum Baker's Twine as well as some Solid Black Baker's Twine.  Thanks again for visiting, and don't forget to stop by the RRR Blog often for lots of great inspiration, news about sales and special promotions, and for all things RIBBON minded.  Have a creative week.
