The exclusive Brutus Monroe stamp set has 4 different images that look like what you'd see on an old time farm sign! I love white heat embossing on red paper, so I did that for my background for this card. But I think these stamps would look SO cool stamped on kraft with a brown embossing powder with distressed edges! Just like an old time farm sign! Anyway.... I decided to use the white embossing on red paper from the kit. I used my MISTI so that I could stamp all 4 images at once with Versamark ink.
Once my background was stamped and embossed I grabbed a piece of patterned paper and trimmed off one of the scenes and used tape runner adhesive to glue it down to the bottom third of my background. I love the empherma piece that says "farm house, sweet farm house" and I wanted to use that as my accent piece. I'll be sending this to card to my mom. My parents raise chickens for their eggs and any time my friends go up to their house they call it a farm and my mom gets a kick out of it! I know she'll love that sentiment!
I thought that the sentiment piece blended in with the scene on the strip of patterned paper. No problem at all! Here's the trick I always do - I glued the accent piece onto a piece of white cardstock and trimmed around it with my scissors leaving a small white border - just like you would when you fussy cut stamps! Now the piece stands out! You can watch the process for this card below!
Thanks for joining me!
