Handmade cards using Typeset Specialty Paper & Burlap Ribbon
After my Typeset Specialty Series that I featured on my blog a few months ago (click here to view) I decided to put my favourite paper to one side. It's been far too long since I've used this amazing paper so here are two cards that I've made.
I've simply layered Typeset Specialty Paper, on top of Kraft Cardstock, on Basic Black base.
I then added a strip of frayed Burlap Ribbon horizontally across the centre of the card using my Fast Fuse adhesive.
Next I made a circle of Gold Metallic Thread and fixed this in place by adding glue dots to the wooden sentiment and placing the thread underneath before adhering the sentiment to the ribbon.
The Burlap Ribbon coupled with the Kraft Cardstock and Expressions Natural Elements gives these cards an Autumnal feel to them....and Autumn is definitely here. I am still defiantly refusing to wear a coat...ask me again in a few days, I'll probably be wearing one.
