Pretty Pears

Recently I saw on a blogpost wedding invitations printed on thin sheets of wood - I thought that was a really cool idea and purchased a sheet of 4" x 24" veneer. Serendipity has just gotten in Textured Pear paper by Reminisce - its background looks just like woodgrain so I had to play when I got home this afternoon!
After punching with 1 1/4" square punch the corners were rounded on three sides. I was adhering to the new A Muse shimmer paper when I realized that this pear paper was double-sided!! Even better than I thought originally - The biggest layer against the white cardstock is my veneer - It was a bit tricky to cut on my rotary cutter - I'll admit I had to do it twice because the first one split in the corner.
Makes for a cool look - even better in real life! Look at the view Kim has outside the window of the shop! The leaves are beautiful this year!! However, the downside is all the rain we've been getting - my phone has already been getting weather updates warning us of potential flooding tomorrow and Friday - Good thing I got a few pics today!
