So Many Thanks {The Twinery Dec Project #2}

Thank you for loving my first December project for The Twinery! I wanted to create another one to show you how even a teeny amount of twine can make your cards stand out. This time I made a set of thank you cards because we'll all be needing those after Christmas!

Once again, my layout is very clean and simple. I stamped the jar with flowers from the Melody Ross set Domestic Bliss and paired it with a sentiment from Happy Everything. Then I added Black Diamond Stickles to random blossoms and let them all dry.

I took my paper piercer and put two holes at the tops of the jars and threaded a different colour of twine on to each card. I simply looped the twine (no knots) and added a small dab of crystal effects to hold them in place.

Easy peasy, yet dramatic! Wouldn't these make great last-minute gifts? :)
