Got some good papercrafting in this weekend. That always puts a smile on my face. My inspiration card came from here: http://www.catherinepooler.com/2013/09/burlap-happy-birthday-card/
I bought some burlap pieces a few months ago by Die Cuts with a View, but had yet to use them. Then while surfing, pintrest I found the card by Catherine Pooler. I thought, yes that is it. I left the burlap as is and then used my scalloped die to cut a piece to the side. I then with Staz On Brown ink stamped the entire stamp by Inkadinkado on the piece. Using Colorbox silver pigment ink I then took a Technique Tuesday border stamp and stamped the left and bottom with a nice vine. I added some white dots with a chalk white pen. The leaf is a die by Sizzix that I inked the edges with the brown Staz On and then put some Ranger Crystal Effects on it to make it look nice and glossy. I adhered all the layers and then topped it off with a gold colored bow. I am happy with the way it turned out. I have a recipient in mind that will receive this. I hope it brings a smile to her face.
