Hello! Debbie Seyer here today to share with you a card I created using one of my favorite Tonic Studios dies and some BARC Cherry Wood Paper from ARC crafts. Creating a masculine card can sometimes be a challenge. Most of the supplies sold seem to be more for women and I have to say that creating pretty cards is my favorite. When I received some of this Cherry Wood Paper, I knew that a masculine card would be perfect.
To create this square card, I cut some kraft cardstock to 5 1/4 x 10 1/2″. Then I layered my mint and patterned paper together, cutting them slightly smaller than the base. I cut a strip of the Cherry Wood Paper to 2 x 4 1/2″. Using my scissors, I cut a “V” in the bottom of the strip to create the banner look. Because the wood paper has an adhesive backing, it was very simple to adhere to my card. I cut a cardstock and patterned paper banner also. Then I really had a good time. Using the 528E Star Layering Die set, I die cut a bunch of different sized stars to decorate the front of my card. I layered the stars using the wood paper, patterned paper and cardstock. All of these papers cut great using the Tonic Studios dies! Here is a close up!
I added some Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops to the smallest mint cardstock star and to the some of the little mint circles on the patterned paper to give it just a little glitter. You should give this ARC Crafts Cherry Wood Paper a try! Check out the ARC blog to see the other projects they have created with Tonic Products.
