Bloom Succulent Wood Card

Hello and happy Monday friends!  It's Jennifer and I'm sharing a project I  created with the Succulent Wood Card! This is one of twelve designs available in the Clear Scraps shop!  Succulents are a hot trend right now and this is one of my favorite Wood Cards!

I  used one of my favorite patterns to back the negative space of the succulent to show through as well as added a small heart sticker.

I  used two colors of chalk paint on the front of my Wood Card: patina and white.  After allowing my paint to dry, I  adhered patterned paper, stickers, and flowers from  Mon Ami Gabby.   I have a short You Tube video to share the technique I  used on my card.

I  had originally wanted to insert note cards to the inside, but it ended up being more of a mini album type project. I  cut white cardstock and added embellishments.

I  utilized the 3x4 journaling cards and embellished them to add extra pages to my book.

Here, I  used a scalloped border punch on the edge of my page which adds some extra flair!  I  then clustered embellishments at the lower right corner of the page.

I  created a pocket from both patterned paper and white cardstock and inserted a 3x4 journaling card.  After completing my pages, I  used black and white bakers twine to tie my pages together.  You can also use ribbon or chrome book rings as well!
