Every once in awhile, I get a hold of a product that I love so much, I’m almost afraid to use it. That’s how I felt about the new wood veneer cards from BasicGrey’s beautiful Persimmon collection. Lordie, have you seen those things? Too fabulous! But I did it, my friends…
Pulled out my favorite piece from the set to share a fun fall-inspired card with you today. See what I mean? That lovely Autumn wood veneer is almost too pretty to use. But talk about an instant WOW on a card with very little work.
Had a little fun with the garland strips, too, which I folded in half and placed diagonally across the card. Looks fancy, but is so easy since the garlands come already sewn into 12″ strips. Love it when all the work has already been done for you.
The background has been pieced from a variety of the 6×6 papers. I added a bit of hemp and buttons, and a little kraft doily cut into two and tucked behind the veneer for detail. A pair of leaves and a sentiment strip from the Die Cut Cardstock & Transparencies pack finish things off.
Just a sweet little autumn card to celebrate my most favorite season of all. So glad I broke into my wood die cuts to play. But most of all, I’m glad I still have a few left I can hoard for later! ;)
