Hi, I am up over on the blog today. I needed a quick and easy card as I had a lot of house guests coming and going. I had no creative mojo so I cased one of my own designs. Hey it is necessary sometimes. Anyway, I love wood slices and this is my third one. I also love rustic decor not that my house is decorated that way but I am fascinated by this type of decor. My theory on home decorating is that if I follow every trend I will be constantly redecorating. So instead, I decorate my cards!
First, I repeatedly stamped and heat embossed the Slice of Wood stamp with white embossing powder on Neenah Desert Storm. Heat embossing is one of my favorite techniques. It is easy and packs a wow factor. Plus I just like watching the powder melt ha!
Next I heat embossed the Wild Rose Bouquet in white on another sheet of Neenah Desert Storm and fussy cut a partial bouquet. I placed a piece of heavy weight vellum ( 4×5.25″) over the wood slice background to tone it down a bit. Using vellum to tone a background down is an easy thing to do and another of my favorite techniques.
To finish, I mounted the partial bouquet with some 3M foam tape onto the vellum panel. I added the sentiment by heat embossing it in white and then cutting it into 2 strips. This sentiment was really meant for a landscape oriented card so that is why I split.
Thanks for stopping by today;
