    What a great card! I bought some of this twine too but thought it would be a nice accent for tying a different type of bow. You’ve taken it to a whole new level! Very nice . 🙂 Thanks for the idea and inspiration!

    Very unique way to use string.

    What a cute card! I too love twine and I had to smile a little about your comment that at first you didn’t see the need for twine. The first time I ever saw it was on a DoD site and it was selling like hotcakes and even selling out! I was perplexed as to why, since the only use I’d ever had for twine was trussing a chicken! LOL!

  21. on 05 May 2012 at 12:33jean w.

    Wow what a different usage of string! Great idea and beautiful card!

    This is incredible. I’m heading straight to my craft room to try this! Well done.

  23. on 05 May 2012 at 13:30Pati L

    Wow How fun!! What a great colorful way to use the string and make a spring card! I too have most of the embroidery floss colors and stop myself from jumping into twine/string thinking I should use the floss, but this twine is just so cool and so much easier to use! : )

  24. on 05 May 2012 at 14:33Linda Carson

    WOW! That’s one cool, creative and inspirational piece of artwork! Love it, love it!
