A Touch Of Twine Blog Hop With DeNami Design

 
Hello and welcome to your next stop on DeNami Design's "A Touch Of Twine Blog Hop!" If you're on track you've arrived here from the BEAUTIFUL blog of Linda Monroe. If not...no worries...just head to the DeNami Design Blog to start at the beginning!

Today's hop is all about using twine to add that extra little something special to your projects!

I have some new DeNami Design stamps I've been wanting to ink up...plus...I've been thinking a lot about my holiday cards for this year. Kristina Werner made a simple wreath card recently that I think is totally adorable (you can see it HERE), so I thought I'd try something similar.

 
 What do you think?!?!

I stamped the Winter Wreath twice in two different shades of brown ink. Using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig tool, I added some red berries. After allowing the ink to dry completely, I selectively inked one of the berries from the group of berries contained in the Elegant Holly stamp set and embossed them in Queen's Gold embossing powder. This powder has a satin finish that is just gorgeous! Here's a closer look:

So elegant! The subtle shimmer of gold and the bright pop of the red berries is just perfect. I love the little twine bow and 'wreath holder'. Thanks for sharing this lovely idea! :)
