Circleville NSD 2013: Go Big Or Go Home! Challenge

 

I made this card for one of  Circleville’s NSD Challenges.  The Go Big Or Go Home Challenge was created by Sara.  She challenged us to create a layout or card  using an oversized photo or title.

I made a card, since I needed one for my younger brother’s birthday today — he turned 64.  He recently bought a wood lathe and has been having a blast making some beautiful wood projects, so I wanted to use a wood theme for his card.  I pulled out my Imagine Snapshot: Nature cartridge and printed a bark pattern for the background and a lighter wood grain pattern for the letters.

The card itself is made from kraft paper.  Happy Birthday is from Something to Celebrate and is cut at 3.5″.  I inked and chalked all the pieces before gluing them together.  This card is simple, but I really like how it turned out.  I put some money inside so my brother can go to the wood store and get something he wants.

    Wow – I opened up this post to see the “wood” better – I had completely forgotten about “Snapshot”. This is absolutely wonderful for a woodworker birthday – love the wood grain letters!
