Hi everyone. I had a lot of interest today after I posted this card on Splitcoast and Stampin’ Connection. A lot of crafters wanted to know how to make the knot. I was planning on making up a tutorial for a class I was teaching this weekend, and it seemed like it would be nice if I had a blog to post it to. Time to get off the fence and just do it! So here it is, my very first blog post.
I fell in love with the Open Sea stamp set as soon as I saw it and knew right away that I wanted to use it to CASE this lovely card by darleenstamps. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1868780
I changed the stamps and added a fisherman’s knot, but kept the color scheme and layout. For the knot I used white baker’s twine dyed with soft suede reinker.
