So Dear Hubby needed me to make some cards for the Educators in our church. He wanted to give them a note of encouragement as the school year started. I have to admit I got carried away but I LOVE how they came out. In the process I discovered a new technqiue. I'm sure that someone else's has probably already done it but I was excited. I wanted to give the trees and leaves texture. I thew all the tree trunks (15) into my Tim Holtz Distressed Wood folder. Ran it through the Texture Boutique. The debossing/embossing was light and random. I used the Tim Holtz Distressed Brick Wall folder for the leaves. I literally dumped about 30 leaves in the folder and ran it though. If you click on some of the pictures you can see the detail on the leaves.
The files I used for this project were from SVG Cuts and My Scrap Chick. The card base is from a set card September Scenes Stand Up Cards. It's was the Maple Forest Card. I also used the School House & School Bus from School Bears at My Scrap Chick. Who has extended their 60% off sale! Woot!
