Country Livin’ Thank You

Thanks for stopping by today, I appreciate your time. I’m continuing my series on ‘The Neutrals’ with Country Livin’ Thank You. This makes a great masculine card. However, think about changing the colour of the boots for a feminine card.

Country Livin’ Thank You

I just love the Country Livin’ Clear-Mount Stamp Set as it’s very versatile and can be used for masculine, feminine and teenage cards. Just change the colours to suit.

For this card use:

Country Livin' Thank You

On a scrap of Shimmery White A4 Card Stock stamp the boots in Soft Suede Classic Stampin’ Pad and allow to dry. Then use one of the Aqua Painters to watercolour the boots.

See my 5 Tips for making this card

Tip: Do a quick wash of colour on the boots minus the buckles. When that wash is dry use a darker wash of colour to add the definition of the straps, heels etc

Tip: Use your Paper Snips Scissors to cut the boots out. Make sure you move the paper and not the Paper Snips Scissors as this makes fussy cutting easier.

On a piece of Whisper White A4 Card Stock which is cut to 14.4 cm x 10 cm or 5 1/4″ x 4″, stamp the background using Timeless Textures Clear-Mount Stamp Set and Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Pad. I stamped the background twice and partially inked up some spots too and stamped them around as well.

Tip: Stamp the sentiment first using Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Pad and Daisy Delight Photopolymer Stamp Set (or whatever sentiment you have). This will give you a better idea for the placement of the background stamping.

Tip: Place the Whisper White C6 Envelopes to the right of the card insert and ink up the boots. Stamp the boots in Soft Suede Classic Stampin’ Pad across both pieces.

Cut a card insert of Whisper White A4 Card Stock to 13.5 cm x 9.5 cm or 5″ x 3 3/4″ and adhere to the inside of the card using Liquid Multipurpose Glue

Tip: Think about changing the colours for a more versatile card – perhaps a paler background with pink or blue boots. The possibilities are endless.
