Hello and welcome to today’s card, featuring the Country Lane Suite from the 2018 Holiday Catalog! When I first saw this suite, I knew this was a must for my Fall and Thanksgiving cards and yes, I ordered everything! Lol I will have to admit that the DSP is a little out of my norm and wasn’t too sure about it, but I figured “what the heck, just go for it and you will figure it out”! So, I got everything from the suite out (except the blends), picked a design from the DSP, and just went from there. This card is really an “all occasion” suite, just simply creating a pretty card!
To create this card, first start with a card base in Mint Macaron cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:
The base layer is Blackberry Bliss cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Subtle Dynamic TIEF:
The next layer is from the Country Lane DSP, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”:
For the card front, I stamped the metal pitcher stamp from the Country Home stamp set in Memento ink, used Light and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends, and cut out using the second largest oval Stitched Shapes Framelits. I stamped this flower stamp in Memento ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, colored with Light and Dark Mint Macaron, Light Crumb Cake, Light Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends, used Wink of Stella on the cotton, and then fussy cut out. I used the largest oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut out this design from the DSP and cut 2 ½” off the long side of the Chicken Wire Element, which gives you a 3” x 4” piece:
Adhere the oval pieces together and then adhere the flower piece with a dimensional:
Adhere the DSP to the embossed base layer, place the Chicken Wire Element where you want, and then used liquid glue to adhere the layered oval pieces on top:
Adhere this completed top layer to the card base:
The inside is a piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and I adhered a ¾” x 4” piece of the DSP along the bottom:
Isn’t this a great card and don’t you love this suite? I never would have thought to pair Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss together if it wasn’t for this DSP! This card is great to leave the inside blank, then when you need a card you can simply add the sentiment you need!
