Our first hour features a super cool product from Et Cetera Papers (formerly Arc Crafts). This real wood paper comes with an adhesive backing and cuts beautifully on the Inspiration Creative Cutters. It’s flexible enough to bend, and you can print, stamp, and ink it. For today’s project I grabbed two different wood colors (Cherry Wood and Birch Wood) and made a fall card. To get this look, cut the card background from one color of wood paper, mount it on patterned paper, then cut a few of the cut out pieces in an alternate shade of wood paper. The result is a cool inlaid wood look.
For the pumpkin I once again cut it from wood and then used watercolors to paint it orange. By thinning out my watercolors with water, you can still see the woodgrain pattern on the pumpkin.
And check out the matching wood envelopes offered by Et Cetera. They come in several sizes and they are a major wow factor for your cards. Can you imagine getting one of these in the mail? Keep scrolling below to be entered to win a prize package of assorted goodies from Et Cetera Papers.
