The Projects:
Today's cards were all created using the Heritage Collection from Ruby Rock-It and some fabulous striped twines from The Twinery. There really are some great possibilities with the Heritage Collection - I can see a variety of vintage and/or shabby chic style home decor items created from this collection, as well as heritage scrapbook layouts and so much more. As I tend to be more on the clean and simple side of things, I wanted to create a simple set of cards using some of the great patterns in this collection and pair it with some of The Twinery's wonderful twines. 
I created two of the cards using the same basic sketch - just break out your circle punches or dies and these cards come together very quickly:
For the third card, I used the beautiful floral from the Country Garden paper as my main focus. I just did some fussy cutting around the floral, added it to my card front, wrapped it with twine, and it was done. 
There you have it - three quick and easy cards using the Heritage Collection from Ruby Rock-It and twine from The Twinery.

Thanks for stopping by today!

LOVE the pair with the pretty patterned circles, it's a great sketch & way to use twine!!! I confess that I'm a circle addict and love my circle punches, so I really appreciate your sketch too :)
As for your 3rd card, it is so ELEGANT with the fussy cut flowers and wood panel background - LOVE IT!!!

LOVE these cards! What a great idea to use the same sketch yet each card looks different. The colors are so pretty! I love that these cards can be made in a quick time frame. Thank you for your great ideas.
