Stampin' Up! Hardwood Background Stamp

If you love natural looking elements on your projects, chances are you are going to love a new background stamp released by Stampin' Up! in our 2014 Occasions Catalog. It's called Hardwood and as a background stamp, the image stamped measures 4-1/2" x 5-3/4" which is large enough to cover an entire A2 card front in one go.

Even though I stamped in a light color (Crumb Cake), you can still see all of the lovely wood grain and knots in the "planks" of wood. Imagine how beautiful this image will be paired with leaves, vines, flowers and the like...
