Hello there lovelies
After a self imposed break, I actually felt like making a card last night. I've been so busy doodling and drawing and sketching, I had forgotten how wonderfully relaxing and fun it can be to sit and craft for a few minutes.
I was spurred on by seeing a lovely pack of Peel & Stick Wood Veneers on my desk, which I had bought from Make The Day Special. I tried my hand at marquetry many, many moons ago and the thought of creating this same effect on a card simply couldn't be ignored any longer.
The main die I used was The Bam Bubble from Paper Smooches. I used a "hi" sentiment from another set of dies and with some trickiness, created this card. Tricky because the "sticky" on the back of these veneers truly lives up to the meaning and spent most of the time clinging tenaciously to my fingers, as I tried to assemble the pieces together.
That aside, I love the final effect. It's delightfully quirky to have a wood veneer greetings card sitting on my desk. Makes a change from coloured cardstock.
