Here is another card that I made using the free stamps I got with my subscription of Quick Cards to Make magazine.
Materials needed:

Patterned paper from Sweet Pea paper stack (#117161) 4 x 5 1/4"
White card stock or watercolor paper 2 7/8x 2 1/4"
Gumball Green card stock 2 1/2x 3 1/8" plus

Modern Label punch (#119849)

Additional white card stock

1. Adhere the patterned paper to the Pool Party card stock leaving a 1/8" border all the way around.
2. Place adhesive on the patterned paper in the center. Place the strip of burlap over the adhesive and press. Wrap the ends around to the back of the card and adhere to the back.
3. Stamp the image you choose in black ink on white card stock or watercolor paper. Use watercolor pencils and an aqua painter to color the image with the colors that will go with your background colors. Give it a couple of minutes to dry.
4. Adhere the dry image to the Gumball Green card stock. Place adhesive to the back of this and place it over the burlap strip at an angle.
5. Punch holes in opposite corners of the mounted image. Add brads to this. This will help hold this in place over the burlap and will give it an extra decorative elements.
6. Stamp a greeting to white card stock with Bermuda Bay ink. Punch out with the Word Window punch. Punch out a label from Gumball Green card stock with the Modern Label punch. Adhere the greeting on to the green label. Adhere this to the bottom right corner of the patterned paper.
7. Pull a piece of loose burlap thread from the extra burlap. Thread this through the button and tie. Place glue dots on the back of the button and press in place at the top left corner of the card. Adhere the card front to a card base.
