Today we're Creating Another Card with Stampin'Up! Free In the Country Stamps with NO Coloring! Tuesday we designed a card with this same set but did a bit of coloring...if you missed it check it out here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2023/01/designing-with-stampinup-free-in-the-country-stamps-with-a-little-coloring-.html.
Today's creation requires absolutely no coloring! Some of our stampers don't enjoy the coloring experience...others are often in a rush and (even though they enjoy coloring) they don't have the time required. This card is for those stampers....
The images in this stamp set (In the Country #160828) are designed to lend themselves to black and white card designs...they also have a calming atmosphere. This feature makes them ideal for many many occasions--get well, sympathy, birthday, anniversary, thinking of you....can you name an occasion for which this would not be a good image?
We used one of the Fancy Frames dies to create the 'frame' for the stamped image...so this adds tons of interest and focuses the eye on the country road roaming through the field into the woods. Imagine an early summer evening as the sun is setting and taking a stroll down the lane enjoying a cool evening breeze as you relax into the evening. That's what I feel when I see this image.
By adding a layer using the Timeworn Type embossing folder we've added just enough interest to the base card to give it a boost above just being "plain."
