CAS(E) this Sketch #214

Over at the CAS(E) this Sketch blog their Challenge #214 seems pretty easy enough.  I recently re arranged my stamp sets and I knew exactly the one I needed to use and I have not used it until now I added some wood veneer from my stash that I rarely use and came up with two Guy cards.

I started off with some 110 Pound Cream card stock that I cut in half to make two top folding cards.

I used a stylus to score and folded it while it was still on my Martha Stewart scoring board and my bone folder to smooth out the crease.
 I am using Tip Top Taupe ink and card stock.

I am trying out this new set of Fiskars stamping blocks as well that I recently purchased from Hobby Lobby.
 These little raised edges are supposed to help keep your fingers clean from ink.

So far so good.
 I am begining to like them. this is my third and forth card making them.

I am just creating a pattern and remember to go off the page and stagger your placement.
 This though is very inky but I am using the block to press down a wood veneer set of glasses into the ink pad.
 I have some scrap paper on a wood clip board and going to heat embossing with clear over the inked wood veneer.
 First layer.
 Second layer.
 I did three layers, and remember to let them cool inbetween.

I am using a ruler and pencil to lightly mark above and below the wood veneer and sentiment.
 Tombow Mono Liquid glue to adhere the wood veneer pieces.

Place a clear block on top of the glasses for a bit to let the glue dry.
Finished cards.

 Look at that shine and gloss, its smooth too.
I think this can be a girl card as well because you can change out the color to a more girly color.
