I love the embossed background and the bright flowers. So how did I twist it? I used fruit instead.
I have a lot of flower stamps but not many that have dies and not being one for a lot of fussy cutting I decided to go another way - use my Cricut to do the cutting for me. Okay, if I'm going to do that, why not cut something different. For those of you who don't know much about the Cricut, which is an electronic cutting machine, you usually cut and layer colored (or printed) paper. Not me. I decided to cut from my regular Neenah Solar White and then watercolor the grapes with Distress Ink. Truth be told, I also used my Cricut to cut the tag, Actually I set up a number of tags and cut them all so I'd have a stash for other cards. I thought the sentiment from Penny Black fit the image (get it?). While going through some of my mother's sewing supplies I found a spool of wired thread that was perfect for grapevines so I added that to some twine. The basket weave ef is from Lifestyle Crafts.
Whew, that was long winded. If you only look at the pictures, that's fine. I'm just glad you stopped by.
