Rustic Skis

Hi and welcome to the Merry Monday challenge!  This week, Nina is challenging us to create a rustic card using tan, cream and brown.


My card isn't terribly rustic, I'm afraid but it's about as close as this CAS card-maker comes :)


I used Papertrey Ink's Two Feet Deep set and created a snowy scene using dies and a stencil and embossing paste.

My card base is Crumb Cake and I used Naturals White cardstock which is a creamy color with flecks in it (my nod towards rustic!).  The skis were stamped in Khaki and Dark Chocolate ink and the sentiment was stamped in Dark Chocolate.

Thanks for visiting.  Take the time to check out the rest of the design team - you'll be glad you did!

Products used:

Stamps:  Two Feet Deep (PTI)
Ink:  Dark Chocolate, Khaki (SSS)
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Naturals White
Accessories:  Two Feet Deep dies, Landscape Trio dies (Mama Elephant), Lil Inkers Stitched Mats

Cheers
Karren

Karren, this is gorgeous! I think the skis and snow and kraft are fabulously rustic. Love the look of white ink on kraft and the whole layout is fantastic! So glad to be working with you this month!
