Today’s card is made with a new product that I’ve just recently come across. It’s called Square 1 Inkjet Printable with adhesive backing. These sheets are awesome. They come in 8.5 x 11-inch sheets and they are made from a woven fabric that does not contain any PVC. Why does that matter?
- PVC is Polyvinylchloride, a type of plastic. There are more and more reports about plastics being harmful to children in toys, baby bottles, "tupperware" type containers, and furniture. Chemicals are leaked out and babies put everything in their mouths.
- If you can, it is best to avoid exposure to these toxins by using natural materials like cotton, wool, and wood on toys and wood, metal or glass or ceramic for dishes.
- PVC is (polyvinyl chloride) plastic, commonly referred to as vinyl. "When produced or burned, PVC plastic releases dioxins, a group of the most potent synthetic chemicals ever tested, which can cause cancer and harm the immune and reproductive systems." PVC is often used in conjunction with metals, including lead.
- It’s environmentally friendly!
The little girl and the Joy wordart are graphics that I purchased from Whimsey a few years ago. I printed them both on the Square 1 Inkjet Printable and just adhered them to the front of this card. I added a little washy tape as well.
Here is a closer look at the Square 1 product. If you look closely (especially at her face) you can see the texture of the Square 1 fabric.
The Square 1 inkjet printable can be used in so many different ways. I used it to make a new light box decoration for Christmas.
It’s beautiful at night when the lights are twinkling.
So that’s it for me, tonight. If you want to know more about the Square 1 Inkjet Printable, please send me an email.
