Hi everyone! Today I decided to make a card with the new Country Lane Suite from Stampin’ Up! I love the new foil sheets and embossed the background with the Tin Tile embossing folder. I really like the way it turned out.
The Country Lane Designer Series papers are so pretty that I had a hard time choosing which pattern to use! I went ahead and choose the back, white and Mint Macaroon paper as it works nicely with the black foil sheet.
Making this card was super easy! I used a Whisper White card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ and cut a stripe of the Designer Series paper to over approximately 1/4″ of the card base. I then added the black foil embossed paper and wrapped a piece of the Daffodil Delight 1/2″ Ribbon to soften the line.
To color the stamped image I used my new Watercolor Pencils and Stampin’ Blend Markers. I’m not thrilled with the way the pencils blend so I will be trying new paper next time to see if it makes a difference!
