ICS Blog Hop - Country Home

Woo Hoo it's the first Wednesday of the month you know what that means RIGHT? ICS Blog hop time!  I wasn't able to do the hop in September, so I'm super excited to be back this month of October.  How is it already October?!?!  Our theme this month is "Fall for All"!  I absolutely love the Country Home stamp set in the 2018 Holiday Catalog!!

This card starts off with a Blackberry Bliss card base (11" x 4 1/4" scored at 5 1/2").  The copper foil (2" x 5 1/2") is embossed with the beautiful new Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF.  I can't get enough of this amazing embossing folder!  The flowers and jug are stamped in Memento Black ink since they are colored in with blends and watercolor pencils (for the white).  I found that the light Cajun Craze blend is the best color to use to give a copper color look.  I stamped the Thanks and circle after I was done coloring.  The Very Vanilla cardstock layer is 2 1/4" x 4 1/2" and matted with Cajun Craze 2 1/2" x 4 3/4".  These layer are popped from the card.  I found the copper foil layer is best attached to the card base using glue.  

The inside has a Country Lane DSP layer 4" x 5 1/4".  In order to show off more of the DSP the Very Vanilla card stock layer (3 1/4" x 4 1/2") is a bit smaller than I would normally use.  

I hope you enjoyed my card!

The next stop in our blog hop is my friend, Deb!
