Crafty Card Makers challenge - distress it!

To make this card begin by creating your own background paper.
Use distress inks over some pale green paper or card and stamp over with a Woodware Rollagraph handle, roller stamp wheel (26135 cherry blossom) and brown ink.

Using brown ink, clear emboss JGS329 teasels stamp.
Use distress inks to colour background over teasel stamp and wipe off excess.

Add a piece of Woodware canvas fabric square (14820)and a little dragon fly brad to finish off.
The greeting comes from JGS322.

Woodware challenge - Christmas collage

Here's my hanging card made from a hand cut heart shape from packaging
card and covered in strips of paper.
I used my rocket tree stamp as my inspiration to cut card shapes
to form the Christmas tree.
Layer almost anything you want from a rosette created with a
score board to greeting, gems and ribbon.
The heart is about 205mm across and 190mm high.
