To give you an idea, this is the card that I created using those same products…


I gave mine an Early Espresso base and used stamps from the beautiful new set Country Home for my focal image that I cut out using a large Oval die and colored using various Stampin’ Blends Markers – Old Olive, Bronze, Pool Party, Smoky Slate – and two BRAND NEW COLORS featured in the Holiday Catalog – Blackberry Bliss and Cajun Craze…


To make the little blue flower pop out I added glitter with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush and popped a little Rhinestone Jewel in the center…


I layered my strips of Galvanized Metallic Paper and patterned papers from Country Lane DSP and cut Vs in one end of each using the Banner Triple Punch…


As you can see I decided not to add a sentiment to the front of this card – I like to keep some on hand that I can use for absolutely any occasion and I think this one fits the bill perfectly – I can easily use it for a thank you, birthday or hello card which makes it an invaluable addition to my stash!
