Embossed Woodgrain


DSC_053935Happy Memorial Day Weekend Friends,  I hope you are enjoying yourself!  Today’s card is for the inspiration photo over at The Card Concept.  I have been eyeing this challenge for about a week now, and finally had a chance last night to put something together.  I decided right away that I wanted to try and heat emboss my woodgrain background stamp and see if I would like it.  I must say, I think it came out great!  The beautiful daisies and leaves were made with a Sizzix die that a friend of mine asked if I was interested in purchasing from her.  Boy am I glad she asked, I LOVE them both!  I added some white dots with a gel pen and not sure I should have! Hmmmm….what do you think? I think my style for this card would be Clean and Layered.  The sentiment is a Verve set called Heartfelt Phrases that I find myself using a lot.  I bet this month I have mailed out about 20 cards for various occasions!  My stock is the lowest it has ever been, but summer is around the corner so hopefully I will have some time to replenish it.

Well, that is all for me today!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Nanc’
