Wood in Design

Good Morning,

I have my next Design Team project for you today, for the new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week Joan has chosen the theme of


So, here's what I made using a fab piece of 'distressed wood effect' design paper from Raspberry Road ...

I decided to cut into the paper, instead of just placing it at a whole square - then inked the edges with some Frayed Burlap distress ink before adding it to my layered card base.

The central piece is made from a die-cut shape which I ran through my wood grain embossing folder, then highlighted the embossed areas with the same distress ink.

I added a little wooden frame which is coloured with a brown Promarker, then placed the little die-cut heart (which is cut from the centre of the first embossed layer) in the middle.

Some decorative brads and a stamped sentiment finish off the card.

Hugz, Jan xx


  1. Love it Jan. I really like the etexture that the wood grain embossing folder has given to the cardstock. Brilliant.
