I’m working on a tutorial for the Closed Blinds technique, but I just wanted to show you another example used in a little different way. I used this technique for the Pals Blog Hop last week (click here for the post).

I stamped a piece of Baked Brown Sugar card stock using Baked Brown Sugar ink with the Hardwood stamp. I then cut the piece of paper into strips and adhered them to the inside of my Lost Lagoon rectangle. I popped that up with Dimensionals over a piece of All Is Calm Designer Series paper that was adhered to a white card base. I used the White Christmas stamp set for the trees. I really love that set!
