Home Decor Plank | Jaclyn Rench May 18, 2018 07:00

Hi Just Nick friends!  It's Jaclyn here today to share a super sweet and simple home décor project that makes a big statement!

Now that my daughter is six, she has requested that we update her bedroom a bit.  While I'd be just fine keeping the sweet nursery theme around for a bit longer, she is ready to ditch some of the baby décor.  So, we have compromised by sticking with the same color palette and slowly adding in some more sophisticated elements.

I love to repurpose my papercrafting supplies for this very purposes and that's just what I've done with today's project.  I combined a rustic, 6x6" wood plank with some cardstock, felt, buttons and a gorgeous Just Nick cut design to craft this sweet piece.

I used the Doily 2 cut file and some textured pink cardstock as the base of my design.  I love the beautiful, intricate details this cut file provides and am enamored with the statement it makes against the distressed wood backdrop.

I cut two of the doilies, layering them atop one another for added interest. The larger of the two designs, I sized to around 5.25" square while the smaller one is just shy of 3.75" square.  This sizing fits nicely on top of the 6x6" wood plank, leaving an even border along all four sides.

 

I separated and adhered each layer of cut cardstock with extra thick foam adhesive.  This adds lots of dimension and shadows to the finished piece.  The feminine doily design is finished off with a pretty felt flower and a coordinating, sewn button.

This pretty piece took no time at all to create, but really shines among her bedroom décor. 

I hope this post has inspired you to 'look beyond the page' with your favorite Just Nick designs.  Happy Crafting!
