Lovely Country Manor


Here's a warm masculine card I made awhile ago, and never blogged!  I love this Country Manor image from Stampendous, and the cool Shade Tree (it's hard to see in this picture, as it is lightly stamped on the coffee paper panel).  Here's how I made this:

  • Make card base from card stock  
  • Ahead of time, spritz Birch card stock with coffee water, sprinkle dry coffee grounds on, allow to dry.
  • Cut Olive card stock to desired size; stamp swirl from Cottage Rose set on right side using Versamark ink. Apply Aged Taupe enamel; melt from underneath using heat gun. 
  • Sprinkle Aged Bronze embossing enamel randomly on Olive card stock; heat from underneath using heat gun until melted. Using Brushed Corduroy ink, sponge over swirl image to help it “pop”. Distress edges and apply Walnut Stain ink directly from ink pad. 
  • When dry, trim Birch card stock to desired size; stamp Shade Tree image using Toffee ink. Sprinkle Aged Bronze embossing enamel randomly; heat from underneath using heat gun until melted. Distress edges and apply Walnut Stain ink directly from ink pad. 
  • Again, trim Birch card stock to desired size; stamp Country Manor image using Vintage Sepia ink; sprinkle Aged Bronze embossing enamel randomly and heat from underneath using heat gun until melted. Distress edges and apply Walnut Stain ink directly from ink pad. 
  • Adhere Olive panel to card base on a tilt; adhere image panels as desired. 
  • Add jute as embellishment.
