Colored Wood

I recently went to my chiropractor's for an adjustment, and she had a lovely piece of wall art that had colored wood.  Right away I started thinking of how to create a card using Stampin' Up!'s Wood Textures DSP stack.

This is what I came up with....

I used colors that were not bright, but not dark either.  And that is how I came up with my color palette for this card, which includes Dapper Demin, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Old Olive.  I wanted to still be able to see the wood grain through the color.

I created the card above on my Facebook Friday Live, last night over on my group Ladybug Stampin Spot.  Come join us, I would love for you to join and share your creative projects.

I also created two other versions of this card, as this technique would make a great guy card.
I use the Happy Birthday Thinlet Die, and a sentiment from the stamp set We Must Celebrate.
I embossed only the swirly words on this card, with Copper embossing powder.

Here are the dimensions for the original card:
Card Base 4 1/4 x 11 score at 5 1/2
Card Mat 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
Wood Texture Mat 4 x 5 1/4
Wood Slats (7) 3 7/8 x 13/16 (the little mark below 3/4)

List of Supplies down below

I have a video on how I created the card:
