Men Cards

I found this great technique called Faux Wood-grain.

I love it, it is so easy. This particular color wood-grain is as follows:

More Mustard Card Stock

Take your More Mustard Stamp pad and open it up, and drag it down your M/M card Stock about 3 - 4 times. Then take your Close to Cocoa Ink pad and drag it down the same card stock, over the M/M ink. Take Choc Chip Ink and do the same. Finally take you Whisper White Ink and drag it down , you judge how much white you want on the finished product.
I then got my journaler and a ruler and ruled on the lines for the floor board look. Don't forget to put the nail heads in.

So came up with a couple of men cards. They are the hardest to produce. Hope you like them
