Neat & Tangled Product share with Real Wood Paper – Day 2

Welcome to another product share with Neat & Tangled. Didn’t you love what they created using our Real Wood Papers? AH-MA-ZING! Hop on over to their blog and take a look, in case you missed it.

Today we are sharing two cards we created using the Calathea Stamps and Dies. We though the leaf images looked a little like feathers and decided to use them as feathers for these cards. We paired these products with our Real Birch Wood paper & tape and love the results.

Calathea Stamp & Dies

Another incredibly versatile set. Calathea is a 6×8 stamp set filled with gorgeous foliage, and endless options! This set is perfect for layering and creating a variety of unique images and has coordinating Calathea dies.
