Canvas Corp, I love you!!

29 Sep

I am making this post today to make sure you all know who Canvas Corp is.

You can browse through their catalog here.

Now when I tell you they are my favorite Polka Dot paper manufacturer in the world, that is not to be taken lightly.

They have these cards, GREETING CARDS, you get a package of 8 plus envelopes.

They are just about the most fantastic thing I have ever owned.

I mean the card is just awesome on its own, all the bold polka dots and all. (Page 28 of the catalog)

So with such a wonderful base, how can any card go wrong?

I am going to show you 3 cards at 3 levels of difficulty.  We will start with the most labor intensive card of the 3.

The Greeting Cards are large.  They measure 5 x 7.

Here is one I created a ladybug scene on.

I also used a CHALKSTOCK TAG and some PAPER WRINKLES.

I love the effect of using the PAPER WRINKLES mixed in with the cut out grass border.

 Here is a side view to see all the detail

 This 2nd card was not as labor intensive.

I initially only wanted the fruit right on the card, but I did not make the strawberry large enough, oops!

 Again, you can see that I used some PAPER WRINKLES for added flair. Th border on top of the yellow strip of paper is called BLACK & WHITE SWIRL REVERSE.

This last card was a breeze to make.

You all should know how much I ADORE Mary Engelbreit.

I took this image and mounted it on plain black cardstock and then again on ORANGE & WHITE DOT REVERSE before mounting on the GREETING CARD.

The flower embellishment is made from strips of paper from some ORANGE & BLACK PAPER WRINKLES.

The black tie on the left is done with BLACK JUTE CORD.

Here they are all together.

Isn’t this a great set of cards?

Maybe you can understand why my title is CANVAS CORP, I LOVE YOU!!
