Real Wood Paper Card


I was asked to make a simple, masculine birthday card for an injured Marine Veteran made with wood paper. I instantly knew it needed a flag. I found this cute little button that was just the right size.



It also needed to have a little pocket on the inside for a gift card.



I used 4 of my new varieties of wood paper. I labeled each of them on the photo so you knew which was which! Sitka Spruce, Bubinga, Rosewood and Wenge. I also heat embossed the birthday greeting on the Sitka Spruce. See you can use it just like regular paper! :)


Naturally beautiful!!!
