Hi! Today is my day to post a Project of The Week on The House That Stamps Built. I'm going to show you how to add a plank look to your card. I wanted a weathered wood look, so I started with a gray piece of card stock that measures 4 in X 5 1/4 in. You can use whatever color card stock you want and whatever size as long as it is slightly smaller than your card base. I'm making an A2 sized card and that's why I used the measurements I did. I used my scor-pal and laid my card stock on it with the long side at the top:
It's been cold here and we even had snow this week (not much), so I felt like a spring card was in order. Here's my finished card:
Thanks for hanging in there! I hope you'll give this a try. I created another card with this technique a couple weeks ago. If you want to see it, you can find it here.
