Boots 'n Burlap - Country Livin' at it's Best!

The farm/country theme at Global Design Project this week started the wheels turning in my head!  I had so many ideas for this theme, it was hard to choose just one.  Here's what I finally settled on:

Boots & Burlap!  This card was a lot of fun to make.  In my never-ending quest to see how many stamps & dies I can combine into one card, this one ranks in my top ten.  (Just kidding...I'm not really trying to use them all, it just seems to work out that way!)

Here are the details -

The card base is made from a half sheet of Soft Suede cardstock.  The mat is Crumb Cake, stamped with the Burlap stamp in Crumb Cake ink.  The boots are stamped on Very Vanilla with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Dark Crumb Cake & Bronze Stampin' Blends.  The Very Vanilla circle is cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

"Hello Friend" is stamped in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla cardstock.  It's adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals over a piece of Burlap ribbon.  The Burlap Ribbon is held in place with Tear & Tape.

About the flowers...

The ombre look on the flowers is achieved with my favorite new tool, the Stamparatus.  For each flower, I applied Pineapple Punch ink with a sponge dauber & stamped it once.  Then I applied Mango Melody just to the center of the flower with another sponge dauber and stamped a second time.  Love these color variations!  The die-cuts behind the flowers are cut from Lemon Lime Twist, Mango Melody & Whisper White.  Three glitter enamel dots adorn the flower centers.

Did you know?

If you lose track of which set a particular die came from, each piece has a number stamped on it that corresponds with the number on the package:  (Get out your magnifying glass :)
