A Teri Anderson Inspired Card

"Meet today's card." Those are the words Teri Anderson uses in her blog posts to introduce her creations. Here's a card totally inspired by an awesome card she made in this blog post. Like Teri, I love baker's twine.

On Saturday I was able to see Teri in person again. She was at the local Scrapbook Expo teaching classes for Technique Tuesday. Teri introduced me to Lisa (Paper Grace Designs). Lisa and I shopped the Expo together. We were both at the CHA Supershow over a year ago and met the same people, but didn't meet each other until Saturday.
I started with a piece of matboard and covered the entire surface (and part of the back) with double-sided tape. I trimmed lengths of baker's twine and attached them to the matboard. I finished off the card with the happy birthday sentiment and some bling. I'm sending this card to my niece.

Here' s a picture of the 3 of us Teri posted on Twitter.

Have a good one!
