Wheat Stalks in Frames

Hi, Vladka here!

Today I'm using some dies from Autumn release. I love this time of the year, when nature is so generous with colors. This is my card:


White card base: 4 1/4 x 6 inches (cut 4 1/4 x 12 inches, fold in half)
Additional piece of white cardstock and some red and kraft cardstock to cut out the die cuts 

Other Supplies:

CottageCutz Dies: Listed Below
Distress Ink:  Tea dye, Brushed Corduroy, Fossilized Amber
Other: acrylic block, Scissors, Paper trimmer, Sizzix machine, piece of acetate 

1. First let's do some smooshing on additional piece of paper to prepare the background.  Add some Tea Dye Ink on acrylic block and spritzed some water on it. Then take a piece of plastic acetate and gentle pressed it against the block to pick up some of the ink. Now, press the plastic on the paper to transfer the ink. This will give you a splotchy look. Put paper aside to dry or use heat gun to dry it:

2. Prepare all die cuts: Wheat Stalks cut out of white cardstock and bow cut out of the red cardstock, "Give thanks" cut out of the kraft cardstock and two second biggest Pierced Wide Rectangle Frames (one white and one cut out of the kraft cardstock):

3. Color wheat stalks gentle with Fossilized Amber distress ink first and then distress the edges with Tea dye and Brushed Corduroy distress inks:

4. Now glue piece of paper with smooshing on card base, then glue both rectangles and also all die cuts as shown on the photo.

5. To finish the card, flick some droplets of gold shimmer spray and let it dry. Card is now finished.

I hope you like it. Have fun creating. And don't forget, sixth CottageCutz challenge is waiting for you. You still have two days to participate. This time theme is HOLIDAY. You can linked your project here. And please, use only Scrapping Cottage dies.
