Burlap Frame Hello

Morning friends! Here's a relatively CAS card from me...I was experimenting with some burlap and decided to make a frame with it. One thing about using burlap with glue on your hands, well...you know that story. :) Here is the result of my test run:

I cut the card base to 4 ¼” X  11”, scored at 5 1/2” and then folded it in half. Adhere burlap to square frame and glue to card base. Make banner using ½” strip of Confetti White paper, cut off right side banner design by holding square punch at a diagonal. Attach cut up sentiment letters and add 3 pearls. Add pearl adorned scalloped border beneath frame. Lastly, glue 2 paper flowers to a raffia bow.
Strike this one up as another one layer card for me! What does that make, hmm...carry the two, add the eights...um, 2 in 1016 cards! Woo hoo...go me! :)

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!

  1. Whoot whooot for the two :) Love the frame - can only imagin the challenges of glue that baby down LOL! Lovely touch with the pearls.

  2. Oh this is ADORABLE, Andrea! My kinda CAS card. I like every little detail. :)

  3. Such a pretty card,Love your frame,great idea...

  4. LOVE the contrast of the burlap and pearls Andrea, splendid card!

  5. I really enjoy making cards with lace & pearls and burlap. Love the contrast. Sometimes, I apply modge podge to burlap first, then cut shapes when it dries. If you want a more defined clean edge, the modge podge burlap helps. It die cuts beautifully.

  6. Love the burlap frame you created - yeah, I know all about the glue and the little pieces that end up everywhere (even on the cat)!

  7. Gosh, this is really pretty! Love the burlap frame and how you pieced the letters for the sentiment. Your raffia bow is perfect with that burlap too!

  8. What a great use of burlap Andrea! Really love your design.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I always enjoy reading them and appreciate the kind words!
