The Twinery & Top Dog Dies Blog Hop

It's an exciting day here for me as I am blog hopping for the first time with The Twinery team. This week we are doing a joint hop with the team from Top Dog Dies. It began yesterday - so if you didn't already see it you should definitely check out the first post here! Throughout the hop you will find projects created that use both our baker’s twine and dies from Top Dog Dies.
You should have arrived here from Tiffany's blog
If you didn't you'll want to head back to the beginning and check out all the blogs!


Today I am going to show you how I put a little different spin on a traditional card.  I decorated a glassine bag and slid my notecard into it.  
The glassine bag comes from SRM Stickers.  I decorated it using papers from Imaginisce's newest line "Little Princess".  I used the Top Dog Dies Pretty Petals Die Set with those papers and cut out several flowers.  I did a bow with double strands underneath my Imaginisce button.  To create that I glued down a regular bow and then I ran the twine thru the button for my second strand. I added some border stickers from SRM Stickers for a little added pink! I used the Vintage Alphabet Die from Top Dog Dies to create my sentiment.

 The top of my note is decorated with some additional flowers and a small banner. I only wrote on the part that would be hidden inside the bag.

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  
Your next stop on the hop is Jaclyn's Blog!

Clever idea. Envelopes usually go in the trash anyway. Now you can keep the card and envelope as a beautiful decoration. thanks
