M5D...For God So Loved The World...Wooden Cross Card

As a McMahon Five Design Team member, I want to share with you, my friends, a special Easter card that I made using some of the amazing wood paper products that you can find at the M5D store.  This particular wood is actually strips rather than sheets of paper, but it is nice and thick and could not be more perfect for the wooden cross that I was hoping to achieve.  There are so many details on this card, but if you look closely, you will also see that more wood paper is used as part of the background and has also been punched with a Martha Stewart edge punch.  Most of the wood paper is very easy to punch or cut and looks amazing on cards like this where the effect comes off perfectly.  There are so many beautiful woods to choose from at the M5D store as well as just tons of other wonderful products to help you create beautiful things.  Hop over and give them a look.  There are some new digis that have been added for Spring and lots of new primas, embellishments and much more. 





I couldn't help but show you this in a more antiqued photo.  I just love the look of this one.  I am thinking that this one would be great in a frame.

I hope you enjoyed your visit here today and that you would be kind enough to leave me a comment to let me know what you think of my wood Easter card.  I love hearing from you and hope to be around to visit you soon too. 

Have a beautiful day!
Hugs and Blessings~
