Instructions: The card:Fold a 8.5”x11” cardstock in half and then cut in half. This will be your card base and it measures 5.5”x4.25”. Cut a piece of green cardstock down to 5.25”x4”and a piece of cream cardstock down to 5”x3.75”. Stamp the birch tree on the left side of the cream cardstock. Color the truck with Prismacolor pencils and blend with OMS. For the foliage, sponge in some Peeled Paint distress ink to add some color. Add stickles to the greenery to highlight some areas. Distress all the edges of both cardstocks using the Tim Holtz distresser and ink the edges with Vintage Photo. Machine stitch these two layers together, wrap some twine around them and adhere to background. Stamp the sentiment unto brown cardstock. Die cut and emboss sentiment using Labels 18. Pop dot the sentiment and add to card. The bag: Randomly stamp the bag with the rock and grass stamps using archival brown ink. Color in the images by lightly sponging Vintage Photo over the rocks and Peeled Paint over the greenery. Die cut an oval in the top center of the bag to make a handle. Make a tag out of Labels 18 next to largest die. Emboss, ink and add sentiment to tag. Thread some hemp cord through the tag and the bag and make a knot.
