I "wood" be so thankful...
The wood-patterned cardstock is some that my daughter gave me a long time ago. She had used it for some invitations to a party for her boss, and that had to be at least 10 years ago! I LOVE it and have used it on lots of projects. It's so realistic looking and cuts beautifully.
For this card I die cut the "thanks" from the corner of the wood-patterned CS using an old Cuttlebug die. I then cut the same "thanks" out of black cardstock and laid it back in along with all the little inside pieces of the wood-patterned CS. I had backed the opening with a piece of double-sided sheet of adhesive, cut to fit.
In this close-up photo, you can see how cleanly the wood-patterned CS cuts and how nicely the pieces all fit back together.
To finish the card, I wrapped some black hemp twine around the mat a couple of times and tied a simple bow. I made sure to keep it above the "knot" in the wood pattern, because I really wanted that to show. I thought it added an extra ounce of "manliness" to the whole card.
Such a simple, simple card, but I honestly think that a man would appreciate it.
ETA: I'm entering this card in Moxie Fab World's "Wonderful Words Challenge."
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
