{TCP Release} Raising Cane

Hi there! Today the TCP Catpackers are giving you a sneak peek at another sweet set called Raising Cane. It features everyone's favorite bunny wabbit holding a pretty big candy cane! He's gonna have a tummy ache after eating all that sugar;)

I added some stickles to his paper-pieced hat and sprinkled glitter on top for sparkly good measure;)
My bunny was coloured with copics and cut with an oval nestie with the tips of the ears cut 'out of the box'.

Check out the fun new Holiday Divine Twine!!

I used the Anywhere Ribbon Slide Cutup die vertically and weaved two different colours (cream and rose) of TCP's seam binding through. Here is a little photo tutorial to show you how I did it.

Starting with your first colour (the one you want to see the most of) and weave strips through the larger sections, securing each bit at the back with score tape.

Next, weave your second colour through the remaining ribbon slots, keeping the ribbon in one long piece.

Secure at the end with more score tape and trim so no frays show through the front.
Flip the strip of CS over and you should have a nice, two-toned effect!

Alma's blog has a complete list of designers sneak-peeking today! And get in on out 'In It To Win It' thread on SCS for your chance to win Raising Cane.

I love those fun colors, Jenny! And, thanks for sharing how you got the two-toned seam binding strip with the ribbon slide die--I'll have to give that a try.
