Prima Holiday Card using Prima Natural Bark and Burlap

Prima is celebrating 12 days of Christmas cards by introducing a different theme each day for card crafting inspiration.  Today's challenge is to create with Prima's bark stars and burlap sheets.  

When burlap and natural wood come together in a project,  it makes me think of rustic,  outdoors themes.   This is Christmas in the Country.

I used the  Prima Finnabair Elementals Resist Canvas to create my trees.  I cut the canvas and frayed the edges.  After I frayed the edges, I dipped the edges in Shimmerz Spritz - Olive Branch mist sprayed on a craft mat.

My bark stars have a little gesso painted on the with a dry foam brush to give them a frosty look.

Want to play along with our card challenge? Here's how:
1. Just make a Prima-based card or tag inspired by one of our 12 Days of Christmas Cards. Pick anything you want that inspires you: the product, a technique, layout of card, or a color scheme.
2. Add your project to that day's post found here.
3. After the features are over we will pick 12 lucky winners to get a Prima prize in December!
