On the first day....

of Christmas, my true love gave to me.....some Moxiefabulosity! Yes, this
Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger is gorgeous inspiration (my take on
that inspiration was the clean white background, the metallics (the silver
paper and colors of bling and the beading around the bird), the beading
and bling (the pearls and bling on my card), and the sewing/stitching...I
used woven twine. And what does it look like, you might ask? Here is
the result.....

Please excuse my photo....drab Midwestern winters make for tough
photos, and with the wrapping, etc. still needing to be was a
quick photo last nite, and post this am....and here ya time
for fooling with my light box!!

I decided to try something that's been on my mind with this card,
some "weaving" with twine.

I like the result....going to play with this more, for different looks, etc.
Lots of ideas floating around! But here is how I got the look above....

Step twine with adhesive to back of size cardstock you need
for your "backing piece", and then wrap at even intervals, cut and adhere
the end piece....

Step 2....simply wrap in the other direction, same process, for this result....

My Step 3....was to add a bit of twine wrapped at the don't have
to do this, I just knew I wanted this look, and the pearls dangling from the
bow (those pearls were from Tuesday Morning, by the by....only .99 for
a huge pack!). At the end of this step I was here.....

Step 4....I put foam tape on front AND back, in the corners, just as shown,
I adhered to the card base, and then my "cover panel" went on top of
what you see here below....

And you see the result at the top of course.....I have other thoughts here...
add some pretty feathers into the weave, etc. But I don't have those things
here!!! Might scope out Mike's today and see what they have!

Remember to check out Moxie Fab World, for your chance to play along.
Take some "me" time today!
