I tried a new technique with this card. I used my Heidi Swapp woodgrain background stamp to stamp some white gesso, and then after it was dry, I blended in some Distress Inks to color it. It created a resist effect that I really like. Ill have to practice this technique more in the future.
After the woodgrain panel was finished, I picked out some fun background paper and some other bits and embellishments to coordinate. The chipboard letters are actually from Target's dollar section, the flowers are die cut with my Sizzix, and I probably couldn't even tell you where I picked up the washi tape.
Anyway, I added a scalloped border to the side of the woodgrain panel and then adhered it all down on a piece of fun foam to give it some dimension.
I love how all the patterns and papers coordinate to create this fun card that can be sent for almost any occasion!
Here's some fun products I used!
