Canvas Corp Brands asked Creative Crew members to create something with a Canvas Corp Brand CCB Creative CrewDenim and Lace theme.  I needed a card to send to friend saying thank you and miss you.  She will love the combination as it mirrors a pair of jeans we purchased together years ago.

I find their paper glorious to work with.  It is the perfect weight and stiffness…and the options for patterns is extensive!

When trying to tape down the ribbon I found that the tape wasn’t even rolling off the ATG.  The ribbon is too smooth so there was nothing for the tape to grip onto.  So, I tried using a little glue, this worked perfectly.  When I do this I put it under my mat to weight it down and keep it flat and smooth.

The ribbon is from my stash.  It was ivory before I sprayed it with Simply Sheer – Navy Blue.

I went with a skinny card to give this the look of a jeans leg.


  1. Card Base:  Canvas Corp Brands – Skinny Cards.  To give an additional lace feel I used a Unity Stamp and Distress Ink – Jeans.
  2. First Layer:  Jeans image that I found on the internet and sized.
  3. Ribbon:  Ivory, colored with Simply Sheer – Navy Blue.  The ticking is a stripe from Blue & Ivory Ticking.
  4. Lace:  This is a strip from White & Kraft Lace paper, punched with an EkSuccess edge punch.
  5. Sentiment:  From 7Gypsies Express Yourself.
