Today we're going to Say Au revoir to the French Countryside. This is the last day we are guaranteed to be able to order the French Countryside stamp set---after today--it' only while supplies last because this lovely set is retiring...
At first when I saw this set I was intimidated with all the "coloring" that appeared to be needed and then I thought--actually that lovely home would be a great background...and so, it is. There is only just a bit of coloring for the birdhouse--but I think you could even skip that if you didn't want to color at all. And....for those of you who don't like embossing...just stamp the greeting in black or maybe a bright color.
I'll give you the step by step directions below followed by the Supply list so you can purchase what you need to create this pretty card.
Remember, if you place an online order and use this month's host code (N2K4FHDC) you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up! product that I select for you for each $50 in product that you purchase.
