Product is made from real wood and is available with adhesive backing and a paper backing
and comes in colours Cherry and Birch.
I must admit when I was asked to review this, I was a little apprehensive but once I started working with it, Wow I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of versatility it has to offer.
As you can see from the samples I have made it has been embossed, distressed, inked, die cut, stamped and painted on using watercolour H20's and everything has worked without a problem.
The cogs on the card (FOR YOU) have been die cut and then had gilding wax rubbed over them, as you can see every detail has been cut perfectly and once you peel off the adhesive backing they easily adhered to the card.
I thought I would push the product a little further and created a canvas. As you can see I have embossed it then used a stencil and Sparkle Medium for the design.
Again just peeled off the backing and stuck straight to the canvas. All without any problem.
Just to show the ease of cutting, I have die cut a butterfly tree, which is quite intricate, as you can see every detail is there. The product can be easily cut with scissor or paper trimmers.
