Dimestore Vogue Mini Canvas and Card

Good morning!  I am so excited to be sharing my first post with you today!  I was so thrilled when Michelle asked me to join the VSM Design Team–what a Fantastic way to start out the New Year.  I am very honored to be joining such an amazing and talented group of ladies!!

Today, for my project I altered a mini canvas and a matching card.  This would be the perfect little gift for a friend who loves sewing.  I used the papers and several elements from Dimestore Vogue Paper Sheets & Tags to embellish the canvas and card.

To start I painted the canvas black with an acrylic paint.  Then I added the pattern paper.  I fussy cut around the lace edges of the paper and added the tape measure trim paper at the bottom.

I added so ric-rac trim along the side and then I used a piece of lace trim and a couple of mini clothes pins to create a little banner.  I also added a couple of die cut buttons from the Dimestore Vogue kit and a small pink crochet flower with a button for the center.

To create a dimensional ribbon spool I glued the die cut to an old ribbon spool and added some pick lace trim and added a couple of buttons.  To give the die cut buttons the look and feel of real buttons I punched tiny holes and threaded the buttons and added pop dots for some dimension.

For the center image I used one of the tags from the Dimestore Vogue kit.  I layered it on top of a paper doily and added a little glitter.  I also added a bow and a couple of trinket pins.

Here is the card I designed using the same paper as the canvas and one of the tag die cuts from the Dimestore Vogue kit.

I added some vintage lace and trims to the top of the card.

I added an assortment of buttons to the die cut tag and inked the edges with a Vintage Photo ink.  To finish of the card I added a bow and a couple of trinket pins.

Thank you so much for joining me today!  I hope your New Year is off to a Great start!!

    Love your mini projects. I’m a certified freak for canvas, (as the stack of them in my living room would suggest). Ready for a scraplift.
