When I saw these WHITE BIRCH BARC WOOD VENEER PRODUCTS from ARC Crafts I thought it would be perfect to use with the Rocking Horse die. The veneer is thin enough to cut with even the most intricate of Tonic dies!
I started by cutting my card base to 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. I cut the Baby Rococo 1270E Rocking Horse die in orange card stock and then again in the White Birch Wood Veneer and layered on top. Since the veneer has an adhesive backing, it was so easy!
Next, I stained the edges with a little Distress Ink and a dauber. I cut 2 circles with the Tonic Circle Layering Die 481E and stamped my sentiment. I added Nuvo Crystal Drops 659N Navy Blue to the eye and saddle of the horse for dimension. After drying, I adhered to the center of my circles.
I cut a white scalloped rectangle from Mixed Rectangle Layering Dies 484E and then cut the patterned pieces to size with the Tonic 159E V Blade Trimmer. For the bottom, I accented with a piece of Birch Wood veneer tape centered on top of a blue strip of paper and a few dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops 665N Ripened Pumpkin.
