Merry and Bright - Faux Wood Veneer

Hi everyone!  I hope you are enjoying December!  I love Christmas time and making Christmas cards and I wanted to share another Christmas project for you.  This card is easy to pull together for all of those last minute Christmas cards you may need.


I am using a couple of products from Studio Calico, including the Very Merry stamp set by JJ Bolton and the Merry craft die.  I love these handwritten sentiment dies.


I will be using the same technique I showed you a couple of weeks ago to create a faux wood veneer embellishment for the front of my card.  I used the Cherry real wood paper from ARC Crafts to create this wood veneer embellishment.  To bulk up the wood piece, I layered several white die cuts and then added the wood piece on top.  This makes a fun and cool faux wood veneer embellishment.  You could do this with any of your dies.


I attached the wood veneer piece to my card front using my Tiny Attacher.  Now that I have gold staples to use in my Tiny Attacher, I can't get enough of it.  If you want to see how I created the gold staples, be sure to check out this video I created a few weeks ago.

To create the rest of my sentiment, I used the Clark's ABC's stamp set by Lawn Fawn.  This set is so much fun and so versatile.  I love that there is more than one of each letter.  You can spell out words that have repeated letters all on one stamp block.

I have included a video tutorial below, walking you through the entire creation of this card.  Be sure to subscribe to me on YouTube and give the video a thumbs up if you like it.  If you subscribe, you'll be sure to never miss one of my card videos!

I've also linked all the supplies used in this project below.  Just click the link to go directly to the product page online.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have enjoyed this project and you are inspired to create some handmade Christmas cards this season!  I hope you have a fabulous day!

  2. While an interesting experiment, I didn't have time/energy/inclination to cut nearly enough wood. here
