Baker's Twine Background - Monday Montage

Hey everyone! Welcome to another Monday Montage Blog Hop! I can't wait to see what everyone else has created!! Today I have a fun card to share with you.

Isn't that background super fun?!?! To create it, I made my own stamp by wrapping some Baker's Twine around a Clear Block. I then inked it up with Daffodil Delight and stamped it multiple times to create a repeating pattern. Easy and fun! I think you could easily go crazy with this technique!

This card is a little bit different for me in that it isn't neat and tidy. I roughed up the edges of the Whisper White Card Stock with my Stampin' Distress Tool. Then I just layered a bunch of stuff: an image from Gorgeous Grunge, Doilies, Chocolate Chip Chevron Ribbon, an Old Olive Word Bubble, some Lost Lagoon Satin Ribbon, and a bit of random stitching. By crumbling up the Old Olive piece and leaving loose tread, I was able to give the card a more organic (rather than polished) feeling.
