Birthday Card with Burlap

I had picked up 3 rolls of Burlap from The Pink Plum a few months back and have done NOTHING with it.  I saw a card that had used some and decided to give it a whirl.  It was fun to do and worked up pretty quickly.  I like the dimension and texture it gives the card...turned out sorta cute!

I used My Minds Eye StellaRose for the printed paper and a piece of Kraft cardstock for the card base.  The little tags were die cut  with Papertrey Ink's Tiny Labels and stamped with sentiments from Tiny Labels and Tiny Labels 2 and I used some PTI twine to tied the labels on.  A little edge inking was the only other thing I did.

Here is a closeup of the little tags:

I really liked the blend of roughness (the burlap and twine) and the softness (the little tags and the small print paper).  Cute!

I entered this in the following challenge:

Happy Crafting to you!


  1. Love the burlap you used but love those itty bitty tags-so cute!

  2. Especially like the texture of adding the burlap. I ordered some burlap from The Kraft Journal with a voucher I won from one of their challenges &rcvd an email it shipped. Wondering how Distress Ink looks on burlap?
