Cards with Colored Burlap Shapes

Charity here from Scrappin’ Chaos with a tutorial for hand stitched cards with colored burlap shapes. The fibrous, loose weave of burlap adds wonderful texture to any project. The downfall of this fabric is the easy way it ravels out; follow these step by step instructions to make sure it keeps its shape.

Step 1: Cut heart shape from canvas. Cut a burlap square ½ inch larger than the canvas. The extra material will prevent the burlap from raveling.
Step 2: Stitch the canvas shape to the burlap using a zig-zag stitch.
Step 3: Trim the burlap to fit the canvas.
Step 4: Add beads, running the thread between the burlap and canvas to hide it.

Step 5: Fussy cut wings from Mini Origins.

 Step 7: Die cut sentiment from Red Foiled Paper. Adhere to burlap heart.

 Canvas Corp Colored Burlap comes in 20 shades and multiple sizes. Pink hearts are all very well, but imagine what you could make with Purple, Aqua, or Chocolate colored burlap? My second card pairs Hunter with the Bohemian Romance collection papers.

 Step 1: Cut All Are Welcome paper to 5.5 x 3.5″.
Step 2: Draw Diagonal lines on the back, about 1.75″ apart. My lines correspond with the lattice design on the front. I used a paper piercer to mark them from the front, then connected the dots with a ruler and pencil on the back.
