Blog comments close on Friday, February 17th at 11:59pm (EST) and the winners will be announced Monday, February 20th on The Twinery's blog and the Momenta blog.

The Project:


I received a beautiful collection of papers in a black/grey/white scheme and I loved the little details - flocking, foil, shimmer, etc.
The papers were begging me to add a pop of color - so I added some color with The Twinery's twine and a few basic bright cardstocks.


The dot patterned paper has a beautiful pearly sheen on the background and is topped with black flocked dots. I added The Twinery's Pink Sorbet twine to a black button for a simple embellishment.


For the next card I decided to let the cardstock be the main color pop and just accent with greys and white. This is the back side of one of the papers (yes, the foiled/flocked papers are double sided!) and The Twinery's Stone twine.
I added a puffy flourish sticker that gives the card just a touch of shimmer.


For the final card I wanted to pair The Twinery's Mandarin twine with the white/grey color scheme. I also decided to add a little something extra...


This card has a pocket on the front that holds a tag. The tag can be the base for attaching a gift card or picture...or it can simply be used for a message.


Thanks for stopping by today!
