I love working with wood textured papers so this challenge jumped right out at me. We have a friend in our life who recently went through a traumatic health issue and so my Mr asked me to put a card together for him. This wood-looking paper seemed a perfect choice to me.
And here is how I took this challenge:
I figured I’d use texture in two ways, a wood-textured paper and backed by an embossed wood look …
beverage container. I experimented a lot with these this past summer, that and plastic - running gracious knows what… ANYTHING through my Cuttlebug. The metal of this can was pliable enough to get a good texture but not too bulky.
It made a great backdrop to the lettering which I set up and cut using my Silhouette Cameo.
The stamp was a Michael Strong “Cloisonne Words and Phrases” and a bit of embellishment with a Mind’s Eye - Lost and Found “Union Square”
I just tucked ribbon into the shapes I desired, stapled it firm on both ends, hiding the mechanics under the sentiment.
So glad you come check my card out.
