Wood Textures

I am through the roof excited to share today’s card with you.
It has a beautiful back story.

We had hired FunCycled (a design consultant) to come in and look at our basement (which was 80% finished, but still felt like a basement and not warm and inviting) a few months back.  Fast forward a few weeks later, a flooded basement and a miracle, and FunCycled came in and completely redid our basement.  It looks nothing short of amazing and we are so grateful.  You can read our whole story here.

The thank you card I made for them was completely inspired by our basement – wood textures, cool grays, and creams.

The card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock as a base (which btw – I’m so excited for the NEW Thick Very Vanilla cardstock – available 6/1).  I then adhered a panel of Basic Gray cardstock to the card.

The NEW Wood Textures DSP couldn’t have been more perfectly timed!!!  I took one of the patterns and cut it down and adhered it to the card.  I then cut a banner of Very Vanilla cardstock and adhered it over the DSP.

The sentiment is from the NEW Label Me Pretty stamp set and was stamped in Basic Gray ink and cut out using the Layering Circles Framelits with a layered Basic Gray circle behind it.  I wound behind it some Linen Thread and then adhered it to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy and please go check FunCycled out!  They are so talented and a pleasure to work with!

  1. What an awesome story. It speaks volumes for your family that someone thinks so much of you to do that. The makeover is wonderful and so inviting. I love your barn, rustic theme. The card is perfect to reflect your new basement. Thanks for sharing the card and your story. (“Short and adorable”–I just though your husband was tall!)
