I made this card to welcome my upline to Texas. I rubbed an ink pad over the embossed piece to create the wood grain. It may not show in the picture, but I raised the star on a foam dot, bent the star points from center to point and then sanded the raised area to distress it. How fortunate was it that I ordered Born to Ride and it had that barbed wire stamp on it?!?
I am including a local cookbook (from my daughter's school that I had the pleasure of being on the committee to create) and a Tervis tumbler that has the state flag and barbed wire on it. I'm hoping she'll like the souvenir!
