You're The Best

Hi everyone...welcome back for another scrappy post! Today I'm sharing a card that was super quick and easy to make. Sometimes it's nice to have projects like this, especially when your short on time like I've been this past couple of weeks : )

I used a variety of scrappy items from 3 Girl Jam, Halloween Harvest Crinkle Ribbon, Vintage Buttons, Twine and their newly released Burlap!!

You've seen me post several projects on here before where I've used burlap but I have to tell you this is the best one I've used so far. I ran a piece through my Vagabond using the Tattered Florals die from Tim Holtz. Normally the edges fray off no matter how careful I am when I take it off the die or they fall apart while I'm putting them on the project...not this time. I was even able to ink the edges and they stayed intact. I will most definitely be ordering more of this burlap!!

Here's a closer look at the flowers.....

I topped it off with a vintage button & twine from 3GJ.

There's some of that yummy Halloween Harvest crinkle ribbon. I ran a piece of through another 3GJ vintage button...love this stuff!!

Here's a sneaky peek at the inside : )

You know me...I like to carry the theme/colors from the front into the inside of the card. I used the small scraps of burlap left from the flowers I cut and added it in the corner of the card. 

I didn't make this card for anyone particular in mind, I just like to have a stash of cards for all kinds of occasions on hand as you never know when you'll need one to brighten someone's day. 

It's my turn to post over at 3 Girl Jam so be sure to stop by their blog and check out my project over there and more importantly to stop by the 3GJ store and check out all of the wonderful scrappy items they have for sale. 

Thanks for stopping by and checking out another scrappy post. Be sure to come back tomorrow, we're having a Blog Hop (3GJ) with Pretty Paper Ribbons. You won't want to miss it!!

Happy Scrappin : )

  1. Oh Abby! This has got to be one of my FAVS of yours! I love the burlap flower! I need to order some of the Halloween Harvest Crinkle Ribbon - gorgeous! MMM Mmm MMM... Fantastic... the colors ... Perfect!

  2. This is such a wonderful card. What a fabulous idea to use the burlap in the Vagabond. I may have to try this technique in my Big Shot with my cute little Pumpkin Sizzix die! Thanks for such an inspiring technique. Love the inking and that little bit of burlap stapled to the inside.
