PP226 A Thousand Thanks

Loads of texture here!  I had this burlap in a 9" square piece on a package recently and threw it in a drawer in my craft room thinking I might be able to use it sometimes. Well, when I saw the re-purpose challenge for The Paper Players, I knew what to use but not sure how I would.  I wanted to stamp on it but the weave was not tight enough for an image.  I then pulled out brads I have not used in a very long time and attached a 4" square to the card stock. Then I decided it had a By The Tide feel and stamped on from there!

Hope your Monday is awesome!
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Awesome, Windy! The texture is out of this world. I love how you attached the burlap with brads. Very clever! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players this week.

  2. Ah, a perfect card for Florida! I love the rustic texture that reminds me of the wonderful seafood restaurants we visit. Great card, Windy! Thank for playing along with The Paper Players!

  3. Windy, this is a great card! I love burlap and it is such a great way to repurpose it! I really like brads, and never think to use them. Thanks for the inspiration and for joining us at The Paper Playrs this week! XX
