Merry Rustic Christmas


Had a little bit of time to play!

This card will be entered into the following Challenges:

Simon Says Monday, Let's Get Ready For Christmas!
Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes!

This was a fun card to make.  I wanted it to look like a sign was hanging out by 
the curb and the barn beyond.  Kind of rustic and country, ya know?

I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets; 
A Year Of Flowers 2, Perfect Pallets and Rustic Autumn.
Stamped in Amalgam Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.
On my wood grained die cut I used Dove Grey and Timber Brown inks, 
die cut with Spellbinders Classic Ovals and backed with Fun Foam for dimension.
Barn was stamped and fussy cut out.

The 'tree line' was created using the 'feathers' from the Perfect Pallets stamp set, 
they are for creating an arrow image.
WOS and Stickles for a glistening background.
 Distress ink also for the background.
Perfect Pearls for Poinsettia center.
Red and White Gingham Ribbon.

Merry Merry!
