I was hoping to get my new Woodgrain stamp set from Wplus9 Studio in the mail by today so I could participate in the current CARDS blog challenge (I'll add the link later--server's currently down), which is to use woodgrain. Unfortunately, cross border mail service is always slow. However, this did not stop me!
In the spirit of Earth Day, I went directly to nature and took some "woodgrain" right off our white birch tree in the backyard. It's only a couple of years old--you can barely make it out in the background of the photo (camoflauged by our fence). I peeled a bit of the thin white bark off and stitched it on my card--it was a bit brittle and not quite flat. I didn't think any adhesive would work well.
her blog a while back (her cards are simply fabulous--check her out!). Any way, I've been looking everywhere for one and finally found one today at a discount store (a single row and double row piercer for $3.49)! It created the small piercings around the card base--SUPER easy to use! Here's what they look like:
Any way, gotta run and try to figure out what to make for supper tonight. I rather by crafting than cooking!
Thanks 4 your time!
