Good morning, friends, and welcome back to Day 3 of Papertrey Ink's 7th Anniversary release countdown! I have another project to share with you featuring the new Text Block: Birthday Die and, as promised, it's a more traditionally masculine design. Shall we get to it?
I began by die cutting my framed sentiment from self-adhesive cork. This stuff cuts beautifully and it gives your projects a wonderful, earthy texture. The backing also helps stabilize the shape while you're removing the negative parts. Next, I trimmed a piece of Rustic White cardstock to 4 1/4" x 3" and masked off the outer edge, leaving a window in the center. In that space, I stamped two of the leaves from Dawn's new Leave It Be set using Spring Moss and Ripe Avocado inks. By the way, I'm absolutely smitten with this set, folks. It has so many options and the second step images add fantastic detail.
I removed the mask from the outer edge of the Rustic White panel and adhered my cork die cut overtop the leaves. Next, I used the Woodgrain Impression Plate to texture a Ripe Avocado card front and adhered that to a Rustic White card base. I wrapped the base with Rustic Jute Twine and mounted my cork/leaf panel with foam tape. It's nice and simple, but with loads of natural texture.
Thank you so much for joining me today! I'll have more to share with you tomorrow, so be sure to check back. In the meantime, Nichole, Danielle, Dawn, Erin, Heather, Melissa Phillips, and Melissa Bickford all have more to share with you today. See you soon!
