Real Wood Friend Card

This week’s project is a small notecard which features both Cherry wood and Rustic Cherry Wood. We love how our Cherry wood layers with our Rustic Cherry Wood. Tonally they match well and each accent the other nicely. You can get a similar effect when pairing White Birch Wood and Rustic White Birch Wood.

Supplies for the ‘Friend to Friend’ notecard: Cherry Wood Sheet, Rustic Cherry Wood Sheet, vanilla card stock, white card stock, coral card stock, coral ink, doily stamp, friend to friend stamp, scallop border punch, 1-1/2″ scallop circle punch, 1-1/2″ circle punch, 1/8″ white ribbon, wood button, foam dimensionals, adhesive, and scissors.
