Splitcoast Tutorial: Faux Wood Frame

For this week's tutorial over on Splitcoast I picked an older entry to update! I was looking for a Faux Wood technique, and discovered that tutorial didn't have a video. It's a great time of year for wood grain background and accents, so I thought a reboot of the tutorial would be fun.

For this first sample, I followed the instructions in the photo tutorial to make a more rustic frame. I used this wood grain stencil to add some texture and darker lines. All my cards feature stamped images from my UFO file (unfinished objects) - these were catalog sample images for Impression Obsession that never made it onto cards last fall so I'm happy they've found homes.

For the second frame, I used a frame die and skipped some other tutorial steps for a a simplified version of the technique. I masked the corner miters instead of cutting them. I like this look too.

The third card was made using the center cut out from the frame die - I added the embossing on that piece. Some brads would have been cute too!

I hope you'll try this out - I think some experiments with other cardstock base colors would be great too!

Remember I have a file of destash items for sale on my Facebook page - lots left to choose from! Have a great week!
