Cards with Burlap Embellishments
Every time I turn on the computer, I am constantly inspired by the scrappy creations of others. Waaaay back last September, Doodlebug DT member Melinda Spinks created a trio of CAS cards with burlap accents. I feel in love with them the minute I saw them! Inspired by her creations, I created a trio of cards using bits of burlap from my stash.
As I sorted through my odds and ends in preparing to make these cards, I found a few fun shades of burlap. I paired the burlap with my favorite Doodlebug stickers to create a trio of CAS cards with burlap accents.
I used my favorite cupcake Doodle Pop sticker to create a pretty little birthday card. I sandwiched a piece of burlap between two pieces of patterned paper and placed the sticker on top. This is a super quick and easy way to create a focal point for a card.
Because I used a white sentiment on a white card, I placed a few coordinating rhinestones near the sentiment so it wouldn't be missed.
Although typically brown or ivory, burlap comes in several bright colors. I paired this happy hedgehog with a scrap of red burlap that I found with my ribbon scraps.
And just for fun, here is a really big picture of that cute little hedgehog.
Doodlebug trees are some of my favorite icons. I paired this green tree with an earthy piece of burlap to create a clean and simple hi card.
Like Melinda's cards, I stuck with white on white sentiments. While it doesn't come across quite as crisp in the photograph, the big hi sentiment looks lovely in person.
Who inspires you?
