Wood pallet art is quite trendy right now and I wanted to use the new More Washi Patterns to recreate that look. The sketch I used was found in a Papercrafts sketch book and it fit the stamps and dies perfectly.
I used the woodgrain washi pattern stamp and stamped it on separate strips. When assembling the strips, I alternated the patterns so that it didn't look as "cookie cutter".
I cut the "merry" out using Christmas Greetings Die-namics and adhered it down using a COOL technique I discovered when trying to align the word evenly and perfectly. Keep scrolling for a quick photo tutorial. :)
I stitched on three Wild Cherry button with Hemp Cord.
Here is a quick and easy way to perfectly place your die-cut letters or words found in dies like Christmas Greetings, Happy Hellos, Happy Birthday, or Thank You.
1.) die-cut the word of choice (in this case the print "merry") and remove the letters.
2.) Put a strip of removable tape over the front side of the negative of the die-cut.
3.) Flip it upside down and insert the letters back in the negative portion, adhering them to the removable tape.
4.) This is what your card stock will look like at this point.
5.) On the back-side of your die-cut letters, add adhesive of choice. I used a mix of 1/8" Scor Tape and Best Glue Ever.
6.) Remove the liners so that all adhesive is exposed.
7.) Stick it down on your card or layer as desired. This is your one and only shot to get it right so be sure you have it placed just where you want it. Then, remove the removable tape from the top of the letters.
8.) Remove the remaining "negative" piece of card stock to reveal your perfectly spaced and placed letters.
