Three Card Thursday: Wood Textures

Hello Everyone,

For today’s post I have something a little different. I wanted give myself a little challenge and see if I could make three different cards using a very limited supply of products. This week I chose to focus on the Wood Words stamp set as it was the first one I found on my very messy desk. To that I added the Window Shopping stamp set as I wanted to use the Happy Birthday stamp, two sheets of paper from the Wood Textures DSP stack and Early Expresso cardstock and ink.

This was the first card I made as I really wanted to do something with the stack of log paper which I think is gorgeous. I cut the smaller log off the bottom of the sheet and then used the pale wood sheet as a background. I used the Happy Birthday from Window Shopping as I wanted a big greeting to fill the space. The little chicken was added last to just add another focal point.

For this second card I cut three of the large logs and stamped the chicken stamp in the middle. I stamped the floral stamp in the background and added a strip of Early Expresso cardstock to ground the three chickens.

For the third card I cut out three more logs and stamped chickens on them again like the card above. I then cut up all the remaining paper and card into strips and stuck them along one edge to create like a log stack. I then placed the chickens over the top and stamped the greeting in the bottom right-hand corner.

This third card is my favourite of the collection, I love how the paper strips look like a log stack.  I hope you’ve enjoyed my three card Thursday post and join me next week when I pick another limited selection of supplies to create with.

Happy Crafting
