Freshly Made Sketches #290

 Two of my favorite crafting items....woodgrain paper and burlap!  This might be my first attempt at combining the two!  Obviously a thank you card with a little bit of rustic flair.  My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches-

Design Tip-My doily was created by cutting burlap with a die cut.  I first place the die on the burlap as any other die cut and run in through my die machine.  I then leave everything in place and add a cardstock shim and run through again.  Call me paranoid...but running everything at once just seems to be more than my die machine can handle....and I would hate to break a plate.  By running the shim on the next run, you give the die a chance to be embedded into the burlap and the extra shim insures that you get a smooth cut all the way through the fabric.
