Have you checked out Papertrey Ink’s newest release?! It may be my favorite yet! Full of garden-y goodness and fabulous fruits (can you tell that alliteration is a favorite of mine!?)

After looking through the design team’s projects, I was inspired to create something fruity.

Enter: the current CAS-ual Friday challenge.

This week’s challenge is to use buttons and twine in a clean and simple creation.

Now, typically, buttons and twine are used as embellishments in cardmaking. Never being one to follow directions, I took this challenge as an opportunity to use buttons and twine in a wacky sorta way.

I gathered up a ton of purple buttons to create a little bunch of grapes! It was really simple!
Now for the twine…it’s there…I promise!
I used Twinery Baker’s Twine in Honeydew to make those little spiral vines. Here’s how I did it:
  •  With my fingers, I rubbed craft glue onto a length of twine. Then I wrapped the still-tacky twine onto a skewer.
  • Within 15 minutes the twine was firm and I removed it from the skewer. I had to wiggle the skewer a bit, since the twine had adhered to it. The result was a perfect little “twine vine” for my bunch of grapes!
I finished off this clean and simple card with the perfect sentiment from Denami Designs – which is so fitting, since Denami is this week’s CAS-ual Friday sponsor!
Thanks a bunch for stopping by for some Damask Love! Have a wonderful day!
