The One with the So Thankful For You (Wood Veneer Challenge) Card

Thursday, March 6, 2014

I got some really, really bad and sad news last night. Sorry to be vague, I can't stand it when people are cryptic and just trying to get pity points, but I simply can't say what's going on right now. I've been in a fog all day and not functioning very well.
So, in light of that, nothing creative or unique to say today, just a little card I made for the latest and greatest CARDS challenge that I host every other week on the Northridge Publishing blog. This time we were supposed to feature wood veneer shapes.

Card is 4" square
How to: Make a small square card base from patterned paper. Punch eight 1" circles from patterned papers then adhere them in a ring on the front of the card. Sew lines connecting opposite circles. (Putting another plug in for my STITCHED class at Studio Calico! I LOVE stitching on my layouts and cards and in the class you'll learn 24 new techniques for unique hand and machine stitching!) Top each patterned paper circle with a wood veneer circle. Place a ribbon bow in the middle and add word stickers above and below to make the title.

Supplies: Patterned paper, ribbon bow, word stickers, spray mist: Studio Calico; Wood veneer circles: Crate Paper; Circle punch: Fiskars; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark

Tomorrow is a new day.
