Burlap Card

Today is my lil sister's birthday, happy birthday sissy!  There is exactly 1 year and 1 week between us so we are really close and the best of friends and love the same things.  I am very lucky to have such a great sister.
I always make her a card and this year I chose to use my new favourite thing to craft with, Burlap, or Hessian as it is also known.  It's normally used for storing potatoes or covering the workings on the base of a sofa, but I like to use it for home decor items.
I love how it holds shapes really well, this flower was done by just folding a strip concertina style, tying some of the burlap threads I had pulled out round the middle and voila, instant flower.  A few gems were added to the middle which complement the rustic nature beautifully.  For the rest of the card I used Anna Griffin stamps and fabric together with some white twill tape and kraft card.

So there you have it, my burlap card, hope you like it.
