Rustic Holidays

Lately, I've been feeling a lot of love for a bit more of a "rustic" look.  More kraft, more burlap - but yet, a touch of bling in with it.  I think this card fits this quite well.

 I started this card with  the Simple Stories "Handmade Holiday" paper pack.  This pack has several papers that have different patterns and what would be considered a journal card, or sentiment.  I cut a couple of those pieces out, along with fussy cutting out a sentiment piece to layer.    

As I was laying pieces out, I decided I needed some ribbon, and that burlap would look great with my chosen papers/patterns.  As I was pulling that out, I found this canvas fringe ribbon in my stash and decided to layer it with the burlap.

I cut apart some pieces of a Prima grapevine as well as some pinecone floral pieces to tuck under the knot of the canvas ribbon.  A little more bling was needed in the corner, so I painted on some clear glitter with my WoS pen.

The inside was done up with another sentiment strip from the paper, and a banner cut from a scrap.  Then I used a black pen to create a stitched border to make the greeting spot match the sentiment from the front of the card.

I hope you liked this "rustic" holiday card!
