I promise you won't want to miss a single project!!

Have you ever heard of The Wood Connection?  It's a great store in Utah that sells custom cut wood designs.  I {heart} this store SO much!!  While browsing their Halloween woodcuts, I found this gem:

My brain just started going CRAZY with all the ways I thought about decorating the wood.  In the end I decided to keep it somewhat simple and classy so that when I add it to my Halloween decorations, it will stand the *trends* of time.

Each letter is about 7" tall.

Tell me what you think.

I used the sponge dauber on the lighter colored DSP and the Razzleberry cardstock.  When you distress the black DSP the edges turn white so you don't have to do anything extra.

I applied Mod Podge to each letter and then applied the cut DSP to the letter.
Smooth down the middle of each letter with your Bone Folder.
I wasn't concerned with having the edges of each letter lay completely flat because I wanted the distressed edges to curl and pop off the wood letters.
