My first card uses the adorable set Green Acres. Green Acres was illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink Line. It's a full sized set on a 5.75" x 8.5" full color sturdy storage panel and includes 24 images. It's farm fun with coordinating punny sentiments!!
I used the two cows plus the bale of hay for my card. Each image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and was colored with Copic markers. I cut it out and rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper. Some of the sentiments in Green Acres coordinate with It's a Banner Day~1, so I stamped the solid image from It's a Banner Day 1 in Rose Coral fluid chalk ink and then stamped the sentiment in Dark Chocolate ink over top. It was then cut out with the coordinating It's a Banner Day 1 die. I used the Picket Fence die to make then fence and then embossed it the new Woodgrain Impression Plate, although the embossing is hard to see in the picture. Some baker's twine with a button finish the card. All the patterned paper is Pink Paislee Hometown Summer.
My second card was made using the new 4th of July Wreath Petite Set. It is the 5th set in our wreath series all illustrated by Nancy McKinney (original concept by Jami Sibley) and all designed to fit the Seasonal Wreath Taylored Die. It's a set of 7 images on a 3" x 5.5" full color sturdy storage panel. It's great for any party decor or patriotic themed cards!
I decided to go round with this card and kept it pretty simple. The image was colored with Copics and cut out with the Seasonal Wreath Taylored Die. The navy layer underneath the wreath was embossed with the Stars Impression Plate. I made a sentiment flag and finished the wreath with a baker's twine bow. The patterned paper is Pink Paislee Hometown Summer.
Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has cooked up with today's sets!
Thanks for stopping by!
