This card measures 4 1/4 inches square with the top and bottom overhanging the card base. I hand made the ‘wood’ panel and tree using the faux wood technique at
Splitcoast. I used white paper Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, and Early Espresso. SInce I used white cs I didn’t need to use the Craft white over the brown inks. I had originally made two pieces of ‘wood’ 2 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches and used both for two different cards. The other one is HERE. Those little ‘foot’ like appendages on the end of the twine are leaves cut from ribbon I bought from ‘IheartPapers’.
The green, blue, and yellow leaves stamped on the Spellbinders circle used the baby wipe technique and that name escapes me at the moment. I used my reinkers and placed a drop or two of three different colors onto a baby wipe and used that as the stamp pad to get the variegated effect. I learned this technique at a Stampin’ Up party many years ago. You can find it, too, at Splitcoast…go to resources and type in Baby Wipe, and guess what? That’s the name of the technique at SCS!!…Baby Wipe………..
I used the Early Espresso to stamp the sentiment onto the twill ribbon and Garden Green to stamp the wee leaves. Took a green marker to make the leafs’ stems.
I dug out the ‘ole’ decorative scissors for this card and used the postage stamp scissors for the edges on the right opening. This card was fun, full of techniques, and a woody manly card entry for the WALTZ.
Thanks for coming by!
