What's Shakin' with Trendy Twine

Woohoo, it's a new month and another fun challenge with Trendy Twine. This month we're featuring one of my favorites, the very versatile Krazy for Kraft twine. The theme is "just another day at the beach" and you can find details here Aug. Challenge. You can get your own spool of Krazy for Kraft on sale this month as well, while you're shopping be sure to check out all the gorgeous brand new twists too!

For my first project this month I've decided to make an adorable hula girl card, and what's a hula girl without her shake... so of course mine does the hula too!

I utilized both my Expression & Cameo for the cuts and a bit of print & cut too. The sandy beach is actual sand, I simply ran my cut through my xyron and sprinkled with sand. Of course the cutest part is her hula skirt. I braided a bit of twine and then glued a bunch of cut pieces of twine to the back... then I simply used my fingers to untwist the twine and fringe it out to give her a nice full skirt. 

You'll notice she's not flat on the card, that's because she has to hula! I followed the directions of my Trendy Twine DT team member Becki from The Happy Card Encouragement Factory to make my own action wobble... you can view her directions HERE.
