Happy Father's Day Dad!! Wood card



My good friend, Sue (who also happens to be very generous), gave me the opportunity to try out some wood scraps to make a card with. I have to tell you, I am so hooked on this. It is awesome to work with and gives you a look that you just cannot get with paper.
I made this card for my kids to give to my husband for Father's Day, and I think he is going to love it. It has a real feel of wood, because it is REAL wood. What guy doesn't love wood? I didn't really have to add much to this card, because it really does have a natural beauty, and I did not want to take away from that by adding alot of embellishments or covering it up with papers. I was going after just a simple look and something just to get the point across to him that his kids think the world of him.
I just know you are all going to want to know where you can get your own wood to work with, and as soon as I can share any of that info, I will be sure to let you all know. For now, please enjoy this wood creation, and keep checking back, because I am sure that I will be making more wood cards. I am addicted to it. ; )

Hello Carolyn, Those wood cards are very rich looking, is that the Sue, your very good and generous friend that commented right before me from Five designs? Won't your hubby be surprised your 'kids' made him that card, LOL. Did you do up the insides, if so, I would love a peek. Jane
