A Little Country

I fell in love with the Happy Harvest stamp set from WPlus9 the moment I laid eyes on it.  I'm not even what I'd consider a country girl in the least.  But, this set is just so fun!  I've been wanting to make a project with it ever since it was released and the Monday Mood Board challenge over at WPlus9 was the perfect motivation!

The green, yellow, and red color palette of this week's mood board just screamed "country" to me, so I pulled out the Happy Harvest set and went to town!

I used the coordinating die set to easily pop-up the elements for added dimension.  The hills were created with PTI paper and dies.  The sunshiny background was created doing an ombre inking effect with PTI's Hello Sunshine stamp set.

I included a few details that are easily lost in photos, including heat-embossing the apples and pail handles to make them look shiny.  I even took the extra time to line the card base and stamp a coordinating design inside!

I just love this set!  It makes it so easy to create a fun, homegrown card from the heart!

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
