Just a Note: Kraft Paper and Ivory Burlap

I don't usually do brown cards unless it is for a man, but kind of went out of my comfort zone on this one. I ran a piece of kraft paper through an EF, inked it with white ink to accent the embossing and used it as the card base. A sheet of white burlap purchased at Michael's had been sitting in my craft room for years, because it was so special. Why do I do this???  I figured that it is time to use those things, and if they get all used up, the store is not far away! How silly I have been to hoard some of these things. Anyway, the piece of ivory burlap was edged with ivory lace; ivory flowers and leaves and a bow were added along with a sentiment.

These were used:

Spellbinders:  Ribbon Banners; Enchanted EF
Cottage Cutz:  Layered Flourish Flower
Hero Arts:  Sentiment that I've had at least 3 years!
Ivory Burlap
Loose Glitter
White Ink
Brown Ink
White Pearl

Romans 10:9-10
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.  NLT

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God--something the law of Moses could never do."  NLT


  1. This is so pretty! I'm not a brown person, either, but this is just gorgeous! I'm doing the same thing you are...I get something pretty and SAVE it. What am I saving some of these beautiful flowers, jewels, pearls, paper (oh I'm really bad at saving Pion and Maja) and lace. I really need to take it out and use it and enjoy it, but it's so hard. I'm impressed you pulled out this beautiful lacy burlap. This is so pretty and your bow is perfect. Thanks so much for joining us at Craft-Dee BowZ for our June challenge! Hugs, Gail
