Tags and Twine

The Mid week Throwdown at OWH is tags and twine. I picked up 2 sheets of this nice heavy Bazzill paper for $.25 a sheet. The bottom had this card design. I cut off the bottoms and have 6 cards with a similar look. The top half is no design so I also like that. The back side is the stripes. The stamp is Stampendous. It came in a square frame and I cut it off. No regrets.

 


I decided I didn't like the black so I redid with blue. I like it much better. The blue ties in better with the stripes

Love your card Cora Jean! I like the border punched piece that ties the two designs together. And, good thinking cutting off the frame on that stamp. Looks great and now it's more versatile to use! :)

wow- great way to use the Bazzill paper! Love that you altered your stamp! I also like the blue! TFS!

Great cards Cora! I love both, but the blue border punch picks up blue from your other elements, that's why it's more appeasing to the eye. I bet if your first card had some more black, you'd lve it too! Thanks for playing along!
