Wood Textures Designer Series Paper

After creating the two cards in the previous post using the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set and the Eclectic Layers Thinlits, I got to thinking about how else to use the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.

My creative mojo has been on a bit of a hiatus lately so I have given my self a little challenge to see what I can create.  I have selected one each of the 12 patterns in the pack, and after making the first set of cards I realised that you can get a lot of cards from the one paper pack as there are 48 sheets in total, 4 each of the 12 designs.


This set of cards uses the piece of pattern paper with all the logs on it.  I will admit that when I first started using this paper, I thought what am I going to make with this.  I got my inspiration of Paula Dobson who is one of the Artisan Design Team.  I love the colour combination on Paula's card and this is what I have used on my designs.  You can see Paula's card here.

Card 1


To make this card you need to the following pieces:

Template made from a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock 8cm x 14.8cm.  Cut the bottom corners off, measure 4cm up each side and then cut on the diagonal.  You will get a better look if the point of the bottom of the template is not centred, eg offset to oneside.

Measurements

A4 Thick Very Vanilla cardstock cut in half to create the card base
A piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 8cm x 14.8cm (put the template on this piece and draw the diagonal and then cut off the corners)
A piece of Basic Black cardstock 8.3cm x 14.8cm (put the template on this piece making sure to line up the template to the bottom edge, draw the diagonal from the them plate and then cut off the corners)
A piece of Wood Textures DSP 14.8cm x 7cm
Scraps of Very Vanilla and Basic Black cardstock 

Technique

Fold card base.

Emboss the Very Vanilla piece with the 'Oh My Stars' Textured Impressions Embossing folder and the Bigshot.  Layer this piece on the Basic Black mat.

Adhere the Wood Textures DSP to the bottom of the card front and then adhere the embossed Very Vanilla with the Basic Black mat to the top of the card front.

Stamp the large leaf from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla cardstock and then stamp the large leaf lined image on top of this using Early Espresso.  Cut out using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

Stamp the small leaf from the Colourful Seasons Stamp Set in Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla cardstock and then cut out using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

Cut out a lined leaf image using Basic Black cardstock and the die from the Seaonal Layers Thinlits.

Layer the leaf pieces together and adhere to the card front.  Add a Linen Thread bow.

Cut the word 'Happy' using the Happy Birthday Thinlits and Basic Black cardstock.  Stamp the sentiment 'Birthday' using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set, Basic Black Archival Ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Adhere these to the card front.

For the inside of the card you can stamp and cut out extra leaf images.
