A soon as I saw the word 'rustic' I knew the time had come to finally break out the stack of burlap paper that I've had in my stash for a few months. I cut the burlap paper to 5 1/4" square, added the Deer Trio die cut shape plus two strips of brown gingham ribbon and adhered the panel to the front of a 5 3/4" cream card base. I simply added die cut ivy and bells plus the sentiment label - the ivy and bells are popped up. I didn't add any bling as I thought that might not be appropriate for a rustic look and feel - burlap and bling isn't a natural pairing LOL!
Here's the inside and the envelope. Well, I had fun trying something different and this card will be ideal for a man and I'm glad to have at least one of those in my Christmas card stash!
