This is totally new to me-Japanese Stab Binding, but I still wanted to try it. I used the Spiral punch first, added a strip of Real Red paper and glued it behind the kraft paper. I used hemp to thread it through the holes using the Japanese binding technique. I kept my layout pretty simple and in keeping up with the holidays , Loads of Love stamp set seemed the perfect choice to spread some holiday cheer. I stamped the truck in Staz-On using Bashful Blue ink. I colored it lightly with Basic gray using Aqua Painter. I added the Black Jumbo Eyelet and Red ones for the tires, mounted it in dimensionals. The tree I colored in Wild Wasabi, added some dazzling diamonds on the branches and decided to also do it in the Kraft paper. The embossed dots in the Real Red strip are from the Crop-a-dile.
