Hello Blog Friends,
Today we are moving to a slower pace of life with the release of Country Road. This is another show stopper set done in silhouette by our own Lauren Pope. This talented artist has again and again produced silhouette stamps that have feeling and depth to them..heart touching depth. This set will also touch many hearts, she taking us to the country roads. Whether we grew up in a country location, vacationed there or visited someone in the country, this has a way for the majority of folks to voice a quiet ...hummmmm....
Let me introduce Country Road
I must admit that I am not a cowgirl, but I did grow up in the deep south and we had family that own large tracks of land. Summers meant trips there, picking and canning vegetables and some wonderful time on the porch swing or a rocking chair. My "son" James loves the country and everything about horses and farm life. He coached me more than a little on this card. How'd we do?
I used a sketch layout from my books of samples. Authenique 6" x 6" Paper Pad "Genuine" was perfect for this card. The card is 5" by 7". This format allows for the patchwork and barn weather wood paper (MME-Howdy Doody 6" by 6" pad). The navy paper is True Blue from Flourishes new Color Made Easy paper line. James picked the nailheads --he said they look like the ones on jeans. That made me think of the buckles I had from my Flourishes slides. A piece of brown ribbon and I had a belt. I love the little tag with the sentiment. It also came from the Authenique Genuine pad. Wanting to make a card with this look of feel? Go for the flourishes.org front page, look just under the slides of card at Coo Tools--everything there to make similar cards! Easy shopping.
