Flourishes April Pre-Release Challenge

What’s 2 by 2 and loves to take center stage? It’s a “twinchie” and it’s what our release week challenge is all about. To take part, all you need to do is make a 2 by 2” segment the focal point on your card.

Head on over to the Flourishes blog for all the details and to play along for an awesome prize!

I used the Strawberries stamp set from Flourishes and used a portion of the large strawberry plant image for my twinchie. I also stamped an additional strawberry that I popped up over the original all colored with Copics. The white panel was embossed with a cuttlebug folder and matted on red cardstock. I had some twill, which I recycled from some packaging, and frayed the ends a bit before adhering to the panel. After adding the twinchie I stuck on a few buttons and one of the sentiments from the set that I cut out with a Spellbinders tag die.

Make sure you check out all the great twinchie designs from the design team and come play along!
