Love You

Hi everyone! Well, the wind is still whippin’ out there but the gray sky has turned into a beautiful blue, so it has definitely turned out to be a gorgeous day here in Colorado! I’ve popped in for the last time today (I’m sure you’re tired of me by now, lol!) to share a card I created for The Outlawz Progressive/Freebie Challenge! Our sponsor this month is Hettie Clare Art and we were provided the super cute Pony Plait digital image to play with. I created a card featuring this adorable image paired with burlap and corrugated kraft cardstock for a little texture and interest.

I used Gamsol and colored pencils to color this image and then cut it with a stitched rectangle die. I stamped the sentiment directly on the image die cut and layered it onto a strip of corrugated kraft cardstock layered onto a rectangle cut from burlap which I adhered to the card front.

I embellished the inside panel with a couple strips of Twine cardstock, stamped the sentiment, and then layered the panel onto more of the Twine cardstock.

And one more look… I just love how this turned out! What a sweet image!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. Hi Leslie! This is such a nice card! I really like the simple, graphic layout and your choice of the corrugated strip with the frayed burlap is perfect with the imagery! You also did a great job with the Gamsol blending! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at the Alphabet Challenge – “E” is for Earthbound Animals!

  2. What a sweet card! A girl and her horse, what a bond! My younger daughter had her own horse and she sure did love her! I love the burlap on your card, great texture! Thanks for sharing with us at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge!

  3. I guess I have to put on all 3 of my DT hats, Leslie! It’s delightful to see you playing in our “Anything Goes” challenge at QKR Stampede and at Jan’s Digi Stamps this month and also in our “Anything Goes with a Critter” at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies. Good luck in all three challenges. :-D
