Sticky Barc Cards

Hello crafty people! It's Teresa here, and I'm excited to bring you a couple of cards I made using the amazing Sticky Barc.

This amazing product is really actual wood! It's sliced extra thin, making it flexible and easy to cut with any die. It also loves being coloured and today I've used Copic markers. Being translucent, the natural wood grain pattern still shows through.

Here's the first card:

 First of all, I cut a piece of White Birch Sticky Barc to 7.5 x 9.5 cm and die cut the silhouette and wreath from it:

Next I coloured the individual parts with a different Earth tone Copic marker. I left the silhouette shape uncoloured for contrast:

I assembled the card using some double sided tape to adhere Hazel and Ruby Crazy for Chevy wrapping paper for the card front. Adding the Sticky Barc to the card was a simple matter of removing the backing paper - this stuff is also adhesive! I wanted to create a parquetry effect, so I added a couple of coats of Tripletac for shine:

The sentiment at the bottom is some of the Colourbock Quotes Fat Roll Washi Tape stuck on some cardstock and attached to the card with foam tape.

Being so flexible, I wanted to see how Sticky Barc would cope with being embossed. Lovely! Here it is cut out with a feather die. I coloured one feather with a Copic marker and sponged some Distress Ink on the other to bring out the detail.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you've seen what a wonderful product Sticky Barc is. I look forward to using it to add the on trend wood veneer look to many more projects.
