CAS Twinery Sunshine


There is a new challenge blog in town, CASology! I have seen many of my blogging friends joining in on the challenge and knew I wanted to get an entry into the inaugural challenge!  The cue card for the week is the word SUN.  I wanted to create a card that was different from my previous sun cards and this is the result!


 This card is about as simple as it gets!  I did add one layer of color behind my white panel, to help my sun pop just a little more!  Here is a close up of the twine details-

Design Tips-I punched a circle, applied ATG gun adhesive (any strong adhesive would work), then wrapped my twine around from the inside out.  For my stitching, I punched varying length holes, then stitched on the sun rays.  I really like the look!  Great use for all of the twine you have just begging to be used!


Supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
D1476 Card Chatter-Sympathy
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
X5918 Sunflower Cardstck
Z2105 Black Ink
Lemondrop Twine-Twinery


I have also entered this card in the following challenges:

C.R.A.F.T. Summer
Digi Doodle Shop's BestSummertime
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Going Round in Circles 
Papercraft Star - Hot Hot Hot
Pixie Dust Studio  - Anything weather theme

Thanks for stopping by!
