6" x 6" Canvas

Christmas is just around the corner!  Have you thought about what gifts you might give to your friends and family?  Have you thought about making your gifts?  Close To My Heart has many options to create your own gifts that everyone is sure to love.  Like this 6" x 6" canvas display, featuring my cutie-pie granddaughter.  This pattern is actually shown in the current Idea Book on page 128.  I pretty much followed the pattern as seen in the book, but you could easily make it your own....switch up the colors, stamp the hexagons instead of embossing them, even use a different sentiment.  Whatever you choose, you'll end up with a beautiful project that makes a perfect gift.

The hexagons were cut using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge, at 3/4 inch and 1 1/4 inch RDS (real dial size).  Use a VersaMark ink pad to stamp the various designs on the hexagons, then heat emboss using gold embossing powder.  The flowers, leaves and branches were cut using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (see keys and sizes below). The leaves were covered with Topiary Striped Washi Tape.  All pieces were adhered with Liquid Glass.

You can find all of these products on my website.
