Those cute pinecones and branches look so nice stamped on the brown gingham paper.
Since I was going for a rustic feel to my card, I cut some strips of cream colored burlap and made sure the ends were good and frayed. I wrapped some brown/white bakers twine and tied little knots around each strip, then stitched them to my card using a straight stitch. Zig zag stitching does NOT work on burlap (ask me how I know this!) and burlap was not the easiest material to sew on. Wow, does it stretch and slip around, even tacked down ahead of time with some tape. It sure does add a very rustic feel to a card though. For my sentiment I chose Waltzingmouse Compliments of the Season stamps. Such cute fonts and sentiments, just perfect for holiday cards and tags.
|Compliments of the Season
The sentiment is stamped on a rustic cream punched circle and has some texture added with a Linen impression plate. It is layered on a dark chocolate limitless layer diecut and a few little pearls added to resemble the berries I stamped on the patterned paper. So what do you think, are you able to smell the scent of pine trees in the air yet?
