I don't often "fussy-cut," but the flowers in the Tropical Party set lend themselves very easily to some quick moves with the Paper Snips, so I didn't mind for this card. I didn't think it was anything too awesome, personally, but several people who have seen it in person really liked it, so here you go!
To get the woven look for the wall behind the flowers, take a piece of cardstock approximately 5.5 x 2. Slice it up the long way with your paper cutter, but stop and start your blade about half an inch from the ends of the cardstock. This gives you four strips that are still connected at the top and bottom. Sponge or distress it now rather than later--I used the Very Vanilla Craft Pad with the direct-to-paper technique.
Fold the top uncut portion around the back of your cardfront and secure with Sticky Strip. Weave your hemp twine through as shown and knot it off to one side. Then fold the bottom uncut portion of the strip around the back of the cardfront and secure that as well.
There you are... beachy and casual... and only available in the Summer Mini, which ends August 31st. Don't wait!
