Hey all!  I have a fun diy for anyone who just can’t find cards in the store that they like.  It’s a fun alternative to stamping or just paper cards.  I made this one for my uncle’s birthday.  He loves flamingos and I can never find good uncle cards that suit him.  I used canvas that I washed with paint and then embroidered the flamingo.  You can pretty much do whatever you want.  If you’ve never embroidered before try it out on some scrap fabric before you start and draw out your image with a pencil to help.  I spray mounted the canvas onto a folded piece of cardstock and wrote my own message inside.  He loved it!

Let me know what you can come up with, and have a good rest of your weekend!
