Country Road & More

I’m feeling a little bit country today and this set has a wonderful nostalgic feel to it for me and I almost missed it in the Annual Catalog. I’m a country girl at heart and grew up among the dairy farms of Wisconsin so these images remind me of my childhood and the country side dotted by red barns.

Today’s cards are done in our neutrals and make great masculine cards. This firsts card is done with Crumb Cake and Basic Black – a monochromatic card that is striking.

And this second card uses our new colors, Gray Granite and Merry Merlot along with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper –

a bit of Silver Embossing and Silver Mini Sequins add a bit more texture to the card. Can you see the plants stamped in the background of the wheel and weather vain? It just adds a hint of interest and texture.

And how about this card done with the Artisan Texture, Enjoy Life and Stitched All Around stamp sets.

I love the way the Linen Thread is applied to the card strip – an easy technique, but it adds a lot of interest.

So, have a favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one you like and why?

I love the way this fancy fold card uses the Wood Texture Designer Series Paper Stack (144177) to give you the feel of weathered barn wood.

And this card using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies (141706) and Hexagons Embossing Folder (143231) has lots of texture. Do you recognize the sentiment?
