English Moss and Cappuccino Card

How’s that for a combination? I fell in love with Colorbok’s “English Moss” collection when I was in JoAnn’s one day ( fortunately with a 25% entire purchase coupon since I might have bought several things from that collection). Then, when The Twinery was donating proceeds from their orders to Japan Relief, I ordered an assortment of twine (LOVE LOVE LOVE). One of the colors included is called “Cappuccino” and when I needed to make a birthday card for a friend recently, the two just clicked!
Colorbok English Moss
The 12x12 paper pack contains reversible paper so it’s like getting twice as much. OK in my head it is!  I chose this green floral that has a shabby brown on the other side.
Twinery Cappuccino
The cappuccino twine from my sampler pack. The English Moss collection also had these great wordy glitter stickers:

The great thing about this card is you don’t have to be a stamper to make a beautiful card. A package of paper, die cuts, stickers, and embellishments and you’re off!

I layered a couple of die cuts from the English Moss pack onto papers from the collection and mounted in the center of the card using foam dots. I wrapped the biggest die with the twine and then added a couple smaller dies as accent pieces and finished with the word “enjoy” in the center. Closeup:
