Fun Friday projects!

Hello again!  It's finally Friday and we want to send you off for your weekend with some more card inspiration!

I (Jessica) made this first card.  I got this Big and Wild Things set and this was exactly the kind of project I thought it would be perfect for!  The first thing I did was stamp three of the images onto some canvas I got at Michael's.  I used three different greens for a natural, watercolor kind of look.  I trimmed the canvas down and backed it with some green cardstock.  I sewed around the edge with my machine and then inked and attached it to a kraft cardstock card base by Canvas Corp.  The butterflies were punched from craft and I stamped on them with another of the stamps from this set to add some pattern to them.  They got some brown Stickles around the edges to add a little more detail.  The sentiment just got attached to come more card stock and then the card (with foam dots this time). 

I really like the way this turned out!  I am going to have to use this set a lot more, especially on some layouts.

Supplies Used:
Canvas Corp Card
Bazzill cardstock
gel-a-tin stamps: Big and Wild Things
Ink by Ranger and Close to My Heart
Sentiment from Joann's
Stickles by Ranger
Xyron Adhesives

Ellen made this cute card (and I think any boy would be excited to get it)!
