Using Jute Twine on Cards by Shantaie

HI, I'm Shanatie and I love to make cards of all kinds! 

I wanted to share a couple of ways that adding a bit of colorful jute twine can make a card that is already pretty, really pop!

For this simple shaker card I stamped the back of my window with bible backgrounds little clouds and the flowers from just believe all built into a frame and filled with sequins, and loose flowers.

 A super cute card on its own, but that pop of wrapped jute twine and tiny bow, really pulls the bold colors together, and adds essential texture and softness.

For this card I created a circle window and stamped the happy sentiment from BIG happy and embossed it in gold, to add a layered greeting a happy birthday to you from the we've got your border sheet clear sticker was placed just below the embossed sentiment. A watercolor flower was embossed in white placed overlapping the window, a tiny bow of plum jute twine anchors the flower and adds a jolt of fibrous color in the same shades, its beautiful!

Try adding little bits or bows of jute twine to your cards, and layouts for a beautiful alternative to a bulky ribbon!
