I started with this lovely winter scene from DSR Designs. There is something about wintery snowy trees that I love. Once the trees were printed on white cardstock I distressed the edges and inked them. I added some glitter pen to the trees to mimic cold winter day after a storm.
Once I had the image I started construction of the rest of the card. When I think country I think homey patterns, natural textures, mismatched embellishments, and a bit of distressing. I chose papers from a My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline pack. I thought the floral and the gingham combined with the white washed wood patterns were perfect. I cut everything down and inked the edges with light brown. A kraft card base was perfect for this project.
I matted the image with the gingham, and adhered the floral and wood patterns together. Once I added some ribbon and twine I foam taped the image panel to the front, and added some mismatched buttons threaded with twine.
A final touch to the card front was a twine bow and two mismatched stick pins. For the centre I layered some of the same patterns, and some distressed and inked white.
