Confession time: I have a soft spot for macrame. I think it started when I was in 4th grade (around 1982!!) and we made macrame pot plant holders, and then those who finished quickly (me!) got to make a macrame owl too. I can still remember the earthy smell of the yarn as I tied the knots. I was very proud of my work and my Mum hung up both of them on our deck until they eventually disintegrated.
Now that macrame is trendy again, we have some gorgeous products dedicated to the craft. So of course I had to get the Bloom Where You're Planted Suite. I love that you can make very detailed, multi-layered cards with these products, but they also lend themselves to very simple cards.
This card is somewhere in between. I've used both stamps and die cuts from the Plentiful Plants bundle but also a simple Designer Series Paper background. I cut the lower half on an angle, for something different. I also used actual twine to 'hang' my pot plant holder.
The colours here are Cinnamon Cider, Grey Granite, Garden Green and Soft Succulent.
