Rita has a great sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches. I love the little banner details! Here is the original sketch for you to play with-
I could not resist adding in a little burlap to my card.
All of the burlap features on my card are from the burlap ribbon by
Close To My Heart. My “twine” is actually single strands of burlap
pulled from the ribbon. My banners are cut from the ribbon as well.
Have you ever attempted to cut burlap into banners and had your sharp
corners unravel on you? Here is an easy fix….before cutting your
burlap, attach to a piece of coordinating cardstock. I put ATG adhesive
on scrap piece of cardstock, then attach the burlap. It is much easier
to apply the adhesive to the paper and adhere the burlap, vs applying
to the burlap first. Once you have your burlap adhered, you can then
cut with scissors or die cut. All of your strands will stay in place
and you will have crisp edges.
