Wood Planks for Father's Day
I used the Brown bag cardstock for the base of the card and for the planks. I cut a piece of the Brown Bag cardstock to 3 3/4 x 4 inches. I used a sort of dry dark brown stamp pad to make the wood marks on the cardstock. You can then stamp whatever you want on the piece. There are (5) 3/4 inch pieces cut. Paper should be layed with the 3 3/4 inch side laid left to right. I edged the planks with a dark brown ink pad. To make it easier to assemble I cut a piece of cardstock 3 3/4 x 3. I raised by planks a little with foam mounting tape. I used the 3 3/4 x 3 piece to apply my planks to. The first plank can be put right on the edge and all the rest will follow.
The second layer is Eggplant Brown Bag. I sort of messed up here. The cardstock is no longer available. There is a color called Cranberry Brown Bag that would do the trick. I roughed the edge a little and applied dark purple ink around the edge. It needed a little bit of something so I added the twine.
