Dad's Cabin

Today's card is made using stamps from the Dad's Outdoor set which will be available from H & M Stamps on Friday 25th April. The sign & the cabin are two separate stamps which gives you a lot more options when using them on your cards .... the sentiment is actually in a long line however for my purposes for this card I needed something compact, so I masked the parts I didn't need when I was stamping it out so I could get it into 3 lines rather than 1.

The design of this card is based on Taylor's of Taylored Expressions sketch for this week. I did adapt it slightly ... only the sketch she used ribbon and a bow for strip across the lower section of the card ... but as I didn't think this would suit the feel of this card I went for using card and brads.

I used my distressed stripes cuttlebug embossing folder to add texture to my true thyme base panel.

Paper: White; Black; True Thyme, Really Rust & Not Quite Navy - SU; DP - Unknown
Other: Black Card; True Thyme SU Ink; Black Brads; Circle Punches; Designer Label Punch; Black Grosgrain Ribbon; Distress Stripes Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Foam Tape

This turned out sooo well! I love it! The background is awesome and I like how you used the brads and strip of paper instead of ribbon!
