Canvas and Card Set

Here in Ohio, Mother Nature seems to have forgotten that it is Spring! We've had snow (and lots of it) and so I can only hope that the weather changes soon. To keep my spirits up, I'm dreaming of my garden and flowers and was truly inspired by Deena's Printable Deposit Seed Co. Cocoa/Treat Envelope.

Cocoa/Treat Envelope - Deposit Seed Co.

The colors are so pretty, and if this doesn't get me in the mood for Spring, I don't know what will. The file comes with the packet on an 8.5 x 11 page and a page of instructions. I decided to use the images to create a mixed media canvas and matching card.

I started with a 5 x 7 canvas panel and painted it with a soft yellow acrylic paint. When that dried I glue a piece yellow burlap to canvas and then added the Deposit Seed Co. image. I think the blue and violet colors contrast so well with the yellow. I stamped "You make me smile" on ivory cardstock and adhered that along with two wooden flower embellishments.

For the card, I used similar materials so that it could be presented with the canvas as a coordinated set. The ivory dragonfly brad is so sweet and I couldn't resist using it here!

Mother's Day will be here soon, and this would make a great gift set. It would also make a special gift for a garden lover. You could easily print off another image and add your seed packet to the set, too!

Thanks for stopping today! Be sure to visit the Ewe-N-Me Printables website for more Cocoa/Seed Envelopes!
