Kraft And Twine

The challenge at
Frilly and Funkie this week is to make your project using kraft paper and some type of twine. Our hostess, Linda, made such a gorgeous card, it inspired me to try something similar. So here is my attempt...

I went with a kraft
base and Glitz Design's Vintage Blue 6x6 paper pad.

This is a mini kraft
bag from Canvas Corp that I embossed with Cuttlebug's Distress Stripes and rubbed with Snow Cap Dabber paint from Ranger. The die was cut with Spellbinder's Floral Doily Motifs, the lace heart is from Linda's Etsy shop that I "antiqued" with Antique Linen Distress Ink, the twine is ivory burlap string from May Arts and the key charm is from my stash.

The flowers and leaves 
are all from I Am Roses... the largest one being sprayed with Cactus Gold Glitz Spritz. The blue vintage lace paper is from my stash. The strip of kraft paper was also embossed and distressed the same as the mini bag.

The tickets in the bag
were cut with Alterations Mini Tickets Set. 

I left the tickets blank
so that I could stamp an appropriate verse or sentiment on them when I use the card.

Hope you'll join in
the challenge and pull out your kraft and twine and create something beautiful.

I'm also entering in:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi Linda,

Oh my goodness, what a gorgeous card you have made! I am so partial to the kraft and blue together and I just love the blue toile stamp. Your mini pocket with the tickets is very cool too. So happy to have you joining in the fun with us this time around at Frilly and Funkie!

oh HOW BEAUTIFUL is this??!?!?! (hint: it is AMAZING! ♥) you are soooooooo wonderful at adding ink and texture in unexpected ways... but still keeping an "elegant" vibe (whereas i jump right into GRUNGE!) it is so impressive! love the tickets--and also that you "reserved" your greeting for when you mail the card... very clever missus!!! :)
