Meandering Twig Border

Hi bloggers!  The Meandering Twig Border is next up on the reveal list.  First thing that I want you to see about this die is that it is a perfect positive and negative image.  None of the branches overlap so can use it in both manners.  The next thing is that the ends are perfect for your PVA glue dots if you want.  I couldn't stop myself from doing it, it just looks so cool!  I have used it in the sample shown here as a triple section background, but it looks amazing in channel cards or even cut into pieces!  If you like this one, let me know what you think!  That is it for today, but I will be back in the morning to share more fun stuff with you!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue,
it'll be the next card I'll make, and using the Meandering Twigs. I'm also thinking William Morris's designs and my little fingers are just itching at putting pearls on.
This is another favourite die of mine - for me, the perfect ending of day 5.

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all
Like other Wilsonettes I didn’t get excited about this set BUT after seeing your beautiful sample (triptychs are a favourite) I realised that this is a brilliant finishing touch/negative striplet with infinite possibilities. Immediately thought of pearls, sticky sheet and glitter, mistletoe for Christmas cards ......,,,... maybe pixie powder backgrounds or cut from pixie powder card - makes your head spin !!

This reminds me a bit of mistletoe, not sure why but it could be and that's the beauty of it...versatility. I can see cutting in parts for floral greenery also and it looks very perky as you used it in panels. Ann mentioned that it would make a good candidate for a stencil and I agree.
