Way back when, kids had portable record players and LPs and the first album I remember spinning on my red, plastic record player was by John Denver and in particular, the song, “Take Me Home, Country Roads," which I played over and over.
So, armed with the Country Roads journaling card, some mini market alphas and a cute chipboard sticker of a pigtailed cowgirl strumming a tune, I had the basis for a card. Underneath, I added a kraft die cut and some burlap for a bit of texture and sewed it all together.
For my second card, I again used burlap as the base for a card front. This time, I paired the burlap with yellow and teal for a pop of color against the warm brown cardstock and patterned paper. Burlap makes me think of Autumn and I went with a Fall theme here. The patterned paper and teal button are Little Yellow Bicycle, the “enjoy” sticker is October Afternoon and the chipboard pumpkin is Bella Blvd.
This was my first time using burlap on cards and I found it really fun to use. Burlap’s a great neutral base and I love the texture it gives. If you’ve made cards or projects with burlap, feel free to link them in your comments. I’d so love to see what you’ve done.
