Start by running the kraft card through the embossing folder, to create this fabulous wood grain effect.

Cut a sheet of 6" x 6" patterned paper in half using the layer perfect, line up on the 3” mark and cut down with a craft knife. If you do not feel confident with a craft knife draw a pencil line and cut with scissors.

Next use your layer perfect to cut the triangle from the bottom end of the strip of paper, ensuring that the layer perfect is the same measurement on each side at the 2" mark.

Attach this to the wood grain card with the permanent tape runner.

Wrap around Raffia and secure in place with a knot.

fold a sheet of A4 stardust card in half to make the card itself. Cut this down to my required size using the Layer Perfect. Then attach the woodgrain card to the stardust card with silicon glue for added dimension.

Use the Layer Perfect to ensure you have a perfect border of stardust card around.

Next create your hot glue embellishments creating a blob of glue directly onto your crafting sheet. Stamp directly into the hot glue using the acrylic block and please be extra careful as the glue is extremely hot, leave to cool. Once this is cooled remove the stamp carefully from the hot glue and add either add Dreamweaver dust, Transfer Foils or Copper Leaf. For this I used the Copper leaf. For Stix2 Seed Bead and Glitter add when the glue is wet.

Stamp your chosen sentiment onto the Kraft tag and add this as well as the hot glue embellishments to the card. I secured the hot glue embellishments with small blobs of hot glue as I find that his holds it best.

Have Fun Crafting!
