Hello and tfl!! I made a few of these fun summertime cards, right around the 4th, to send to my farm country friends.
I made the 'barnwood' bg by stamping several distressed colors with a S U texture stamp (honestly can't remember the set name and i just starting reorganizing and everything in boxes) and then added board lines using an Early Expresso marker to drag along the side of a wooden ruler that is banged up and has irregular edge. I tilted the ruler just a bit to make the lines at a small angle.
stamped, masked and fussy cut out the berries n baskets
needed a small table (like fruit stands in midwest farms), so I fashioned one out of 2 dies. First I sanded the Corefinations paper and then die cut a Sizzix Bookplates & Tags die, second i cut the top edge off so it was flat on top, next i lined up another die from T Holtz Labels die set and cut out the center of the 'table'. This left the rest of the Bookplate & Tags die looking like a little antique side table.
last sponged the edges with Early Expresso for aged look
Split the threads out of the burlap ribbon and used a few tiny bits under the berry basket. ?? maybe hay, maybe twine from the crate of berries?? who knows, just seemed right for the farm. Popped berry baskets up on dimensionals.
layered on Poppy Parade and Night of Navy pieces.
hope you are all well and take good care, Teresa
