The inspiration for this card came from this pin on Pinterest. I wanted to make an "outdoorsy" card for my daughter, who has a summer birthday. She loves the outdoors, and lives in a place that provides amazing scenic beauty and year-round outdoor activities. I loved the idea of stamping on canvas! Once I had my stamped image, I wanted to assemble my card with various textures and embellishments that complimented the outdoor/beauty of nature card.'s my card:
Here's how I did it:
The canvas center was created by inking my stamp with Versamark ink and stamping it onto sticky-back canvas. Then, I swiped various colors of Distress Ink horizontally across the canvas. The edges of the canvas were lightly distressed with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The canvas piece was adhered to a slightly larger piece of adhesive-backed cork sheets. Prior to laying my cork piece onto my card base (made with white wood-grain paper), I placed the three pieces of white jute across my card base and adhered the jute to the card base with a small piece of tape. Then I pealed the backing off my cork piece and attached it to the card front. The jute was brought to the front and tied in a bow. The laser-cut butterfly was attached to the center of the bow with Glossy Accents.

Here's my main supplies:
