Country Cousins - Country Style


Todays card is another of the new Country Cousin Stamps, this one is called Country Style from Funky Kits. Ive stamped onto white card and again used my Karisma pencils to colour it, Ive then cut it out with the large rectangle die and then for the mount I used a deckle edged one.

The base card is a 8"x 8" base card, and down the edge I have used the Martha Stewart punch to make an edge, behind which I have stuck to the inside, a piece of the first patterned paper. Afterwards Ive then used a pale green card for the first mount, on which I have layered up again one of three papers that Ive chosen from the new Bearly Mine Designs Cd, the second mount is a piece of a stronger green card with the second of the papers, and around the edge Ive used grosgrain ribbon, the third and last mount is another of the papers and this one has got some of the grosgrain ribbon wound around the top of it.

I have layered both mounts in an upside down L design, and then stuck the mounted stamped image across the front of one of the mounts. The flower was created with several different sizes of petals and then used a jewelled brad in the centre. The final thing Ive done is stamp a greeting onto white card and cut it to fit a small deckled edged die cut. Looking at the photo it doesnt look quite straight so I may need to remove it and stick it down again, sorry about that.
