I used the Harvest Blessings and Wetlands stamp sets for my card today. My card design was inspired by The Paper Players #160.
I started by embossing a panel of Cajun Craze Core’dinations card stock with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and sanding the raised areas. Next, I adhered a strip of Night of Navy Core’dinations card stock that I’d sanded along the edges to the embossed panel with SNAIL. I stamped the sentiment from the Wetlands stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a strip of Soft Sky card stock, embossed it with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and adhered it over the Night of Night of Navy strip with SNAIL. I also adhered a strip of Etcetera DSP with SNAIL.
Then I hand trimmed the edges of the angled paper with my Paper Snips so that they lined up with the edges of the Cajun Craze panel. I adhered the Cajun Craze panel to a Soft Sky panel with SNAIL, then to a Night of Navy card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the tractor image from the Harvest Blessings stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on a Soft Sky panel, cut it out with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits Dies and sponged the edges with Night of Navy ink. I adhered the stamped panel with SNAIL to a Night of Navy Core’dinations card stock panel that I’d cut with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits Dies, embossed with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder and sanded. Then I adhered the layered panels to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I finished the card front by using the Chevron Border Punch to punch out a chevron from Night of Navy, Cajun Craze and Soft Sky Core’dinations card stock. I sanded the chevrons and adhered them with SNAIL.
I stamped the basket image in Night of Navy ink on a Soft Sky panel inside the card.
