Country Road

I have a lot of amazing men in my life but  my “stash” of masculine cards never seems to be enough. With that in mind I went through the 2018-19 catalog and can’t believe I never even notice this amazing stamp set. One of the cool things about it for me is that I used all but one of the stamps in the set for this card. I hate waste and Stampin’ Up is so generous with the coordinating stamps in their sets I often only use a few over and over again.

And…this card is masculine but it would also be perfect for my sister who lives in Montana or any country gal, in fact I would love getting this. Switch the sentiment and the possibilities are endless!!!

The set comes with the sentiment “Nothing’s better than the wind at your back, the sun on your face, and your family by your side.” I stamped the sentiment with the grass on the inside and just love the way it turned out. I heat embossed the sentiment and horse because I wanted the it to look metallic.
