Silent Night

It's Friday once again and that means time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long!  I think our inspiration photo from last week stumped most of you, so hopefully this one will be a little bit easier:  Mrs. Claus--add fabric or lace to your creation.  A few weeks back, we were challenged to create a project using items found on Santa's coat, so this week we are looking to his wife for inspiration.  As I was looking through my fabric stash to see what I had, I came across this red canvas and knew it was perfect.  I used spray adhesive on my card base and smoothed the fabric on, then trimmed around the edge of the cardstock with scissors.  As you can see in the picture, the edges are fraying a bit, but it kind of gives it a homespun feeling.  I didn't have any lace to match, but I also used ribbon and added some black buttons.  I stamped my sentiment directly onto the canvas and the "Silent" came out perfect, but the rest was a bit hard to read.  So, I used a black sharpie marker and traced over it.  Our sponsor this week is Eureka Stamps and the winner will receive 5 digital images of their choice!

So, hop on over to the CSAYL blog for the full details and to see what the rest of the DT came up with.  Then dig into your stash and show us some creative ways to use fabric (or lace if you take the easy way out).


Stamps: Eureka Stamps "Mary and Joseph Circle" digi; Verve "Star of Wonder" sentiment
Dies: Spellbinders circles large, floral doily motifs; PTI  button die
