Earthy toned card

I found a sheet of tags in my stash and decided to make some cards out of them. I had gotte the sheet at Big Lots years ago and I think I paid fifty cents for the sheet. Now that I know what to do with these sort of embellies I would like more but guess what.......I think they are out of style because I don't remember seeing any lately! LOL

I think with the earthy tones of this card and the sentiment it could be used for a variety of occasions so I didn't stamp anything on the inside. I think it would make a good birthday card for a man, a get well card or even a sympathy card.

No Cricuting on this card but I did use the Forest Branches Cuttlebug folder for the piece of kraft paper on the card. The mulberry paper is some I got at the stamp garage sale over a year ago. I always forget to use the stuff and I do like the effect it gives things *okie wonders how she can get a better memory*. I think the little bit of twine added the finishing touch to this one.


  1. I was away for over a week and boy did I miss a lot! Just getting a chance to catch up now.
    Love this card! Great use of some of those long forgotten items.

  2. Your card is great, It is hard to come up with men cards. Shari (cricutrookie)

  3. I really like this card Okie...I have some tags that I bought years ago laying around somewhere... This makes me wanna drag them out and use them... Sometimes it's hard coming up with a "mancard" ....I love the earthy colors and the twine..I used some tan twine on my brothers birthday card a few weeks ago and I thought it finished it off perfectly ....

  4. I really love the natural look of this card...Everything works so great together! Once again....GREAT!!

  5. I LIKE this card! There's some mulberry paper sitting in my Jetmax cubes that I keep forgetting to use too! I just had to have it and it took me forever to find it two years ago.

    Mulberry paper adds a lot of texture to the card front and I like the translucent effect too.


  6. I just did a green and brown layout today.. we must be feeling the same "earthy" way!! :) So pretty :)

  7. Love, love, love the natural effect. Thanks!
