By The Seeds You Plant

Happy Saturday Everyone!  Julie here, sharing a fun card using the Artistic Outpost  stamp sets, Seed Packets Background , Harvest and Grunge Elements along with the ODBD Fun and FancyFolds Z-Fold Card, ODBD Tag Trio Dies and ODBD Blooming Garden Collection 6x6 Paper Pad (all available at Our Daily Bread Designs).

Using the ODBD Fun and Fancy Folds Kraft Z-Fold card as the guide, I measured the sides, center panel and front and cut pieces from the ODBD Blooming Garden Collection 6x6 Paper (fussy-cutting the shovel/planting pot image before cutting the pieces), distressed the edges and mounted all onto black cardstock before adhering to the Z-Fold card base.

I stamped the AO Seed Packets Background as well as the sentiment and the farmer image from ODBD Harvest with ground espresso distress ink onto sand cardstock, watercolored the the AO Seed Packets Background  image with distress inks and die cut with the ODBD Tag Trio Dies.

I also die cut a piece of black cardstock with the ODBD Tag Trio Dies, split the black tag in half to layer behind the stamped AO Seed Packets Background tag, added the antique brad with the hemp twine and mounted the fussy-cut gardening image.

I trimmed the AO Harvest sentiment and farmer image, mounted onto black cardstock and added distressing with the large splatter stamp from AO Grunge Elements.

I finished off the card by adding a bit of hemp twine with a bow around the bottom edge of the center step and adhered the tag, farmer image along with the sentiment with dimensional foam.

I hope I have inspired you to pull out your Artistic Outpost stamps and create a project this weekend!  If so, please share with us on our Artistic Outpost Facebook page- we would love to see your creations!

Thanks again for taking the time to visit us and I hope you have a wonderful week!
