A fun card full of the latest trend in rich fall colors and embossed textures.
Before starting - several hours or the night before dye the Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine. Add several drops of Pretty Peacock reinker drops into a small plastic container. Add a couple of tablespoons of rubbing alcohol to the container and stir to mix. Cut about a foot (12") of twine for each card you will make. Dip the twine into the alcohol and ink solution. Let it absorb for about 5 minutes, occasionally turning the string to let it soak evenly. Drain the string for a few minutes on paper towel. After the string has dried enough not to drip, hang to dry (like over the shower curtain rod.)
