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

Su, you’re always thinking outside the box, and here’s another great example. Love the wood flower! This is a really beautiful and creative card.
This is the most beautiful card I have seen in a long time. You are amazing!
This is a beautiful card. The wood flower certainly is unique. I never “wood” have thought to use the DSP paper to create that look. You have a very creative mind. I may have to CASE this card in the future. Love it…
“Wood” be delighted to have you CASE. Thank you, Roberta!
Definitely an eye catching card Sue! It just draws you in! I can’t quit staring at it.
So happy that it has you staring! Thank you, Ginger!
Good morning Su. The first thing I have to do each morning is check to see what “pretty” you have created. This wood magnolia card is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
