Hey everyone! Happy Monday! If this is your first time here, welcome! Be sure to join my email list while you’re here! This week we’ll be playing with the Let It Ride Stamp Set. Such a nice set and perfect for masculine cards or any horse lover. Here’s the measurements for today’s card:
- Card base in Pool Party cardstock cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
- Wood Textures DSP cut at 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″
- Very Vanilla cardstock cut at 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ for the inside
This card is actually one I made over the weekend for our team swap and since it was made with all scraps, it went together fairly quickly. I started with a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the horse image in Tuxedo Black ink so I could color with our alcohol markers. For those that are new to Stampin’ Up! products, our alcohol markers are called Stampin’ Blends and they come in a light and a dark color of many of the current Stampin’ Up! colors. It really makes coloring with them easy since you don’t have to guess at numbers when trying to match a project. So for the horse I chose the Crumb Cake combo and I used the Dark Soft Suede for the mane, tail and hooves. Then I colored the grass in Granny Apple Green. I cut it out with on of the large ovals. I then stamped the sentiment on the lower left of the card base in Early Espresso ink and then layered on the scrap of the Wood Textures DSP. I really love that paper and hope it carries over again for next year. Next I ran some adhesive on the back of the colored oval and added some of the Braided Linen Trim. sometimes I have a hard time getting my twine or thread to look good doing this, but the linen trim is much easier to work with. I then added some dimensionals and glued it to the card base. Next I took another scrap of Very Vanilla and added a leftover piece of the same DSP, stamped the sentiment and glued it down on the inside of the card.
This is why I keep all those little scraps! I hate cutting into a large piece of cardstock or DSP for just a little piece like this. So what do you think of today’s card? I really like how it turned out! If you would like to purchase any of today’s products, just head over to my online store here to place your order.
