I’ve been thinking about making a wood carved magnolia with Magnolia Memory Dies, and today is the day.

Wood Magnolia

 

This piece of wood is from the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper, and I used a Magnolia Memory Die to cut two sets of petals. Two additional sets of petals were cut from Soft Suede Cardstock, for layering, to give the flower a thick, wood look and feel. The burlap leaves (Pressed Petals DSP) were also cut with Magnolia Memory Dies.

 

The background is another piece of Pressed Petals DSP, layered on a Mossy Meadow card base, and you can see I used the DSP for photographing also. Guess I like this paper!

 

Whenever I use wood, I feel it’s suitable for a man, and I’m always needing masculine birthday cards. “Happy Birthday” is from the Piece of Cake Stamp Set. It’s stamped in Early Espresso Ink on burlap DSP and cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die.

 

 

I wanted to use this shape, because of the TGIF challenge.

 

Thank you for stopping by. I hope this gives you some ideas for masculine cards.
