Embossing Real Wood – Fall Card

It’s been a while since we shared some card inspiration. This week’s fall card features Cherry and Birch woods. Real Wood embosses amazingly well! You can add more visual dimension to any Real Wood sheet with a little texture embossing. On our Hello Fall card we dry embossed a sheet of Birch wood with a V Striped textured for a stunning result. The three pumpkins on the front of the card are cut from Cherry Wood.
