Nature’s Nest Rustic Card


Natures Nest 'detail shot' (click for larger image) This card was a lot of fun to make, not to mention easy!

I used the new ‘Nature’s Nest’ stamp set (click on the thumbnail for a larger image) and you can be sure I will be sharing more.

The colors are the new Soft Suede for both the card, a torn layer and the feather stamped image. The cardfront is Mellow Moss and there are torn layers of More Mustard and Chocolate Chip.

I ‘texturized’ the torn layers with the Texture Plates Kit #4 for the Sizzix ‘Big Shot’.  The Texture Plates kit came with three plates, each double sided and one side was a rough bark like texture which was perfect!  The nest was stamped in Black StazOn and colored in with the watercolor crayons and an aquapainter.

    I am such a sucker for a nature card, and this fits the bill perfectly. I love the execution with the stamping on the large layer peaking out from beneath the layered pieces. Wow. It’s always harder making masculine cards, but this really fits that genre also. Great job. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂
