Real wood veneer which give these wood products a more rustic and textural look. We wanted a more textural look for our project this week and the Rustic Birch Wood was just the ticket.

‘American Flag’ Instructions:

1. Cut a piece of textured green card stock to 4-1/4″ x 10″. Score and fold in half for your card base. Round both bottom corners of your card base using a corner round punch.

2. Cut a 3-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Rustic Birch Wood Adhesive Sheet. Adhere to textured green card stock base, centering left to right and top to bottom.

3. Cut four 3-1/4″ x 1/2″ strips of alternating patterns of patterned paper. Two in one color/pattern and two in another. Adhere the first pattern to the card above and below the 3-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Rustic Birch Wood. Adhere the next pattern on top of the 3-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Rustic Birch Wood and first patterned piece. Note: this piece of pattern paper will overlap and hide the seam between the Rustic Birch Wood and first patterned piece.

4. Punch out two leaves using the leaf punch. Adhere leaves to card in a ‘L’ shape. See card example for placement.
