September Gallery Challenge - Papercrafts Connections

Late this afternoon I decided to make a card for the the September Gallery Challenge at Papercrafts Connection !

The challenge was to make a project using natural elements like burlap, canvas, cork, twine, denim, leather, or wood etc.

I used denim (cut with zig zag shears), cork to make faux buttons/snaps (3 layers of cork for each button); brass rings and 100% cotton thread used to stitch the denim as well as to stitch the smaller brass rings on to the cork buttons.  Oh, and of course....paper!

I used foam dimensionals to pop up the face panel,  white paper is CTMH; More Mustard & Confetti White is Stampin' Up; Happy Birthday stamp - SU; denim - hubby's old jeans

Here is a link to the Flickr group for the September Gallery - check out all the wonderful cards!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy crafting!


  1. Love the zig zag denim and the faux buttons - very creative!

  2. Have to laugh to think that denim is 'natural', but ok! lol! This is a really fantastic card - so much texture and creative use of all those elements, and yet still CAS! Great card!

  3. stunning! i love the texture and graduated colors in denim..paired with cork?! My head just about exploded! Love this Geri :)
