Country Livin’!

COUNTRY LIVIN’ has been just itchin’ to see some ink on a card and I thought, tonight is the night!  I really love the country “feel” on this sweet stamp set.  I have water colored this image in the past and it looks great colored, but today I wanted something a bit more simple and “naked.”  What did I say?  Naked?  yes, no colors, thank you.  I just wanted those boots to be the showcase and do the talkin’ along with this sweet, kind and adorable sentiment!  Found in the “One Big Meaning” stamp set!  This stamp offers SO many awesome thank you sentiments, you should have it if not already!!!!

Here’s how I made my card for you today

  • I used Early Expresso card stock and then EMBOSSED IT with the ALL NEW Pinewood Planks embossing folder!  It’s a 3D folder which allows for deeper impressions and really pops out on your cards!!  Page 211 in the catty!  I will be using it for many wood, fall and country settings for sure!
  • I wrapped the 5/8″ burlap ribbon around the front piece and then used a few wrap arounds of the Linen Thread for a little somethin’ somethin’ and then used the Shimmery White card stock for the top pieces on dimensionals and called it GREAT!

This is such a really simple card to put together, I thought the sentiment “thanks kindly” fit the Cowboy Boots, I can hear John Wayne saying it now.  So long ago, too.  I adore the “kindly” font!  Don’t you?!

Here’s another take on my card:

I wish you could see the embossing from the Pine Plank folder, it looks so nice in person and just fits most appropriately with the boots and the “theme” of my card.  On the inside, I layered Crumb Cake on both sides and stamped the boots image and the sentiment from the All Things Thanks stamp set, “You’re the Best” and I just love it!  This card would work so well for a masculine card to someone special in your life or just for a friend.

That’s it for today’s card, super simple, yet says it all, country style!
