wood veneer thank you

hi,


things have felt extra busy around here lately. shaun finished his last quarter of school ever and graduated, yay! we had a big party with friends & family to celebrate. and it's been so nice to get to spend more time with him since he isn't always busy doing homework and studying for tests.

after the party we had bunches and bunches of thank you notes to send and shaun requested that i didn't create anything "too girly". here is what i came up with:


i was totally inspired by this card from the amazing and talented julie ebersole. i love the woodgrain and the inlaid effect so i recreated it with the savvy thanks script die and cracked pistachio distress ink. 

first i cut the wood veneer paper to cover my card front. then i die cut the thanks right where i wanted it. i removed the thanks word and inked it with cracked pistachio using the ink blending tool. i adhered the larger rectangle of wood veneer to my card and adhered the inked thanks word back where it was cut from. a glue pen works great for this. underneath i added the "so very much" message from the mama elephant happy everything stamp set in versafine onyx black ink. ta-da! all of my supplies are from my favorite place to shop, ellen hutson and you can find them below.
