Life is Beautiful with Wood Textures

I love the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and the sentiments in the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set especially the one shown on this card. This sentiment is so positive. I truly believe that a postive attitude and outlook on life really makes a huge difference in creating a happy life. This paired with my love of nature and the Wood Textures designer series paper, just makes me love this simple card! I hope you like it too!!!

The other element that I simply love on this card is the Copper Trim. Check it out here:

I just had to include another close up of this trim! It comes as a 1/4" wide ribbon but it can be manipulated and pulled with your fingers to create all kinds of interesting shapes. On this card I simply played with the ribbon to make it about 5/8" wide, wrapped it around the Basic Black Cardstock (after the DSP was attached) and attached it with Tear & Tape on each end. By doing it this way you are not wasting this lovely trim with a bunch hidden behind. I then tied another piece around the right side of the attached copper trim and fanned out the ends into the shape you can see here. Isn't the shimmer and texture just gorgeous?!

TIP: When I tie my ribbon as I have done here, (often called faux tied ribbon) I leave the ribbon on the roll while I tie. I find that I use less ribbon that way and make sure I have plenty of length to make the tieing easy to do.
