supplies: fawn, sage, and kraft cardstock, Hobby Lobby music design paper, Tammy Tutterow Shabby Posies and leaves from Pom Pom Posies dies, Big Woodgrain cling stamp, sentiment from (retired) The Craft's Meow Happy as a Lark, tag from Frayed Tabs, Teddy Bear brown, gathered twigs and ground espresso distress inks, score board, brads, craft foam
I started with a piece of kraft cardstock, and stamped the Big Woodgrain in brown ink. Then I turned the panel over and scored 5 lines vertically to create planks. I used ground espresso ink to darken my score lines, which were now pushed out on the front of my panel from the scoring. This panel was attached to a piece of craft foam and glued to the front of my card front to lift it up a bit. Next I cut out my leaves and flowers, distressing the flowers with gathered twigs on the edges, and bending the petals inward, and then attached them together in layers with brads. These were arranged onto my plank background and glued down. To finish I cut one of Tammy's Frayed Tabs, stamped my sentiment, and then recut the tag to center the sentiment on it.
