Petite Petals Punch Birthday Card

I found this fun card on Split Coast Stampers.  It was made by "StampingwithMarsha".  You can see the original card here.  I didn't deviate much from it.  My words are a from a different set and I didn't have any Strawberry Slush Baker's Twine so I had to make my own.  I had read on the net how to do it a while ago and I didn't save it and I didn't remember it completely!!!  

To color your own you wrap the Baker's Twine around something round.  I used a chop stick.  Then you take the color marker you want and draw several lines down the twine.  I drew too many.  I drew too fast because the ink did not bleed through to the back side of the twine.  Oh and I didn't do it first.  I did it after I finished making my card thus resulting in the twine being wet and I got ink on my card!!!  So there you have it, some tips to use when making your own colored twine!!!  Do it first, unwind it and set it aside to dry while you work on your card.  I suppose the heat tool would have dried it some too.  Anyway, this is what I got and you know I share it with you whether it's pretty or ugly!!!  

It was a very fun and simple card to make.  Oh and it was super quick too!!!  In the future I will color my twine first!!  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Even with the little bit on ink on your card, it's still pretty.
You could always use a toothbrush and do alittle splattering and your ink spot would fit right in with your splatters.
I normally wrap my twine around a metal ruler and then using a marker I make my marks on the twine.
