Embossed Christmas cards – Canvas Corp

Hello lovelies!!! A countdown to Christmas has started over at the Canvas Corp Brands blog and there is lots and lots of inspiration for everyone to see! So I highly recommend, you keep an eye on the blog and what is going on over there. The projects are for sure going to get you into CREATIVE Christmas spirit :)!!

I joined the fun with a set of 12 Christmas cards. Yes, TWELVE!!! I am coming closer to my goal of getting all the handmade Xmas cards done (and mailed) in time this year…

Here is what I did:
Embossed, stamped Xmas cards - Sanna Lippert And I only needed two sheets of 12×12 paper for these cards!!! One plain kraft cardstock and one Snowflakes on Kraft Reverse. Both from the Canvas Corp store. A little paper goes a long way, as you can see.

I´ve used 4 different embossing powders (see the video in the end for more details!) on my cards – a plain black and white one, seafoam white and a glitter black. Those colors worked so well with the kraft cardstock and in combination with the black patterened paper.

The only thing I needed to add was some fussy cut fabric pieces from the Jolly Christmas Fabric Panel. I colored the fabric with markers and decorated them with some glitter glue.

A little bit of canvas fringe for additional decoration and stamped, fussy cut sentiments by Elizabeth Craft Designs to personalize the cards and then you only need to adhere everytthing on their places. Fun, fast and easy!  And I love the look of black and kraft and fabric/canvas together. A little bit retro, a little playful and not too bulky so they will fit into an envelope well too.

I love this snowman :)!!! Such a cute fabric sheet with all the picture on it. And now to the video:

I am also submitting these cards to the ANYTHING GOES challenge over at the Simon Says Challenge Blog 🙂 !!!

Happy crafting,

Cheers – Canvas Corp Brands

Hello everyone and happy May!! Today I´d like to share another Canvas Corp layout with you. This one is again made with the lovely Vino & Ale collection. I just love it! It is perfect in so many ways and totally versatile to use. And I think this one will be a timeless collection that will work for a long time with whatever you choose to combine it with!

This is my layout:

I´ve used the Black and Kraft Wine Glasses Reverse paper in combination with kraft cardstock and added some fussy cut elements from the Vino & Cheese on Kraft paper here and there.

I then took a dark purple and green Glimmer Mist and used a water tank brush to color the fussy cut images. I also created some „wine glass stains“ to the background by dabbing a small cup into a splodge of brown Glimmer Mist and then pressing that onto paper. In addition I then added some color splatters onto the background in the same colors I had used for coloring of the images.

Finally I´ve just added some doodling around the kraft cardstock edges for additional decoration and glued a few wood veneer pieces to go with the fussy cut images. I by the way cut the „cheers!“ title out of the Uncorced on Kraft paper. Easy!

ps. if you were wondering about the photos, they are taken from the region where I live. We have some beautiful wine gardens just a few minutes drive away from home and we love to go for walks there.

Happy crafting, lovelies!
