Trendy, Twirly, Linen Thread

Have you seen the 'twirly Linen Thread' craze that has popped up on cards all over Blogland?  It's fun to see the different ways designers have used it to add texture to an embellishment.

I first spotted a sample on the Stampin' Up! ® Website and 'pinned' it for future reference.  You can see it HERE.

Wow!  That was 26 weeks ago and I've just got around to 'CASE'ing the gorgeous design.  Instead of the Dictionary Background Stamp, I used Off the Grid in my first project and the beautiful flourish stamp from Creative Elements for the second card.

1 - Off the Grid Bitty Butterfly

2 - Creative Elements Bitty Butterfly
