Farm Yard Greetings

Welcome

I needed a card for a friend who moved from being a 'city girl' onto a farm, so decided that would be the theme in this card!


I started by die cutting the opposing corners with a die from the Memory Box Distress Baptista Collage Set, and  adhered gold paper behind them.


The sentiment is from Layers of Color (now defunct) stamped in Memento Cottage Ivy ink.


The image is also from Layers of Color, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and  coloured with Prismacolor pencils.

Maxine the gold shining through reminded me of early morning with the rooster crowing sun-up. A really great card.

Praying you will have a Blessed, Prosperous, Peaceful and Creative 2016, Carole

A gorgeous card, Maxine! I love the gold at each side, and the image. The sentiment is lovely, shame it's no longer available. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work with us at Stamping Sensations.

Love how you accented the card with the gold corners. It looks like it's foiled. I never would have thought it was die cut with a gold backing. Awesome!

Lovely Linda said...

I love roosters : ) This card is wonderful- love the gold shimmer and the die you used is a perfect match for an elegant country feel! My Mom and Hubby both grew up on farms, so at one time growing up, we had rooster dishes.... Wishing you many blessings in 2016!

Bonnie said...

What a creative way to do the corners, Maxine! I love this! Sorry I haven't been by in a while. I've enjoyed catching up on your beautiful creations! I hope the new year is off to a good start for you!
