Welcome!! Sorry I’ve been absent for a bit. But, I’m back and ready to share!!! I’ve been asked to add some masculine designs. Today I’m kicking that off with a card created with the Nature’s Beauty stamp set.
Because I’ve used a few techniques in this one, you’ll want to sit back, relax and take in all the details.
As lots of you know, I’m a country girl. Still on the family farm at age 66. Yep, I said it and pretty proud ot it. We are surrounded here with nature’s beauty. So, I was definately drawn to this set. The detailed line art images are fabulous.
This card started with the selection of the background DSP. That gorgeous embossed mat is from the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper pack. One of the best parts about it, it’s currently on sale. Here’s an upclose look, so that you can appreciate all the lovely designs and possibilities.
Nature’s Beauty paired with the Mountain Air bundle was the perfect choice to add lots of dimension and texture to today’s card. The Mountain Air bundle is another that will carry over. But, don’t wait, get that one now to enjoy your 10% discount. In the new catalog, they will be sold separately and you’ll loose that discount.
