Personalized Handmade Card : DIY with Jute twine

Its a long break, since, I wrote last due to flu, but I’m back with some great ideas and fun stuff. World card making day is coming soon , so I will be sharing few cards made by me every week until 5th October. This personalised card can be used for any occasion and is very easy to make for someone special .

Materials Needed:
Natural Jute twine( Suthili thadu)
Card stock
Construction paper
First make a  folding card  of desired size out of card stock paper.
Write a name using pencil directly on the card stock or on a construction paper.
Measure the amount of jute twine required and using glue ,paste the twine carefully.
Note: I used a white piece of paper and painted it wheatish brown to give a nice thin wood effect for pasting twine but if you want  ,do it directly on the card stock itself. Using two shades of paper gives a nice dimension and contrast appearance .In an Indian household ,Jute twine is readily available because of its frequent use in the house but here in States , you can find it at any local craft stores.

I know ,it’s funny , made my name card but  planning to make  lots of  customized cards for others and sharing it with you .So stay in tune! and share your thoughts about this eco friendly card.
