Christmas is just around the corner, so I thought I would start things off with a very simple card. The Santa I used for the focal point of this card is actually printed on canvas! The Christmas Canvas set is available from The Robin's Nest and contains 3 different images, all with a holiday theme.
To adhere the canvas to the matching die cut mat, I reached for my bottle of The Best Glue Ever. I have been disappointed with other adhesives I have used in the past - they appeared to work with fabric, but actually ended up not creating a permanent bond. I hate it when I think I am finished with a project and the elements start to peel off! That never happens with The Best Glue Ever - it dries quickly and works so well with a variety of materials, including fabric and paper.
The background of the card is a tone-on-tone, rustic, red plaid which is found on the reverse side of the Red Snowflakes paper. You can see I scored and sanded around the edges to reveal the white core. Good thing I kept the Perfect Cleaning Cloth handy!
Next I inked the edge of the sentiment, which is actually a sticker from the Christmas Sayings sticker set, and popped it up on a piece of chipboard. I tied a button with some twine, glued it in place, and adhered the entire assembly to a black cardstock base.
Thank you so much to Rachel at The Robin's Nest for generously sharing her products with us!
I hope you will come back tomorrow for some inspiration from our very own Robyn - Robyn Coburn!
