I received a beautiful card from a fellow demonstrator in a recent Christmas card swap, and I decided to have a go at creating it myself, particularly the stunning birch background which looks for all the world as if it is three-dimensional. I am so pleased with the result – it REALLY looks like woodgrain!

The birch background stamp is so minimal, but creates such a striking effect, especially when you use the Stamparatus to stamp it twice with different ink colours (I used Gray Granite and White). I stamped first in white, then cleaned the stamp, moved my cardstock up a fraction of an inch, and stamped again in gray.

The Nature’s Beauty stamp set makes a great companion for the Birch stamp. Featuring detailed imagery of woodland creatures, this stamp set is terrific not just for the holidays but for year-round projects such as birthdays, thank yous, and other occasions. You can colour the stamped images or leave them blank as I have done here. Best of all, Stampin’ Up! is donating $4 from every Nature’s Beauty sale to mental health organizations around the world. Here in Canada, the funds are going to the Center for Addiction and Mental Health.

Have you made any projects with either of these stamps? Share them in the comments below! I love to see your creations!

The “chevron technique” is a great way to show off BOTH sides of our beautiful designer series paper. You can create some really neat effects on your card!

Cut several strips of DSP measuring 1 x 2.5″.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Use your bone folder to fold the corners as shown. Notice that there are two different ways to fold the strips (top row vs. bottom row); you will need some of each.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lay out your strips on the card so that the folded corners line up and create a cool pattern, as shown.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Complete your card as desired.
