Today I am sharing a country themed trifold card
that holds a small surprise inside.
The background is created using a really cool technique using the Gel Press plate
with acrylic paints to make this weathered textured effect.
The different pages created are cut into strips & sewn together on the sewing machine
so they resemble old wood planks with peeling paint.
You can watch Kate Cranes video on YouTube to see how this is done.
Link to that video is here. Faux Distressed Wood with Gel Press.
This country style background really suits the fabulous Australiana series of dies from Paper Rose.
I have used the Bird on a Wire Fence die in dark kraft cardstock here.
Also featured on the cover and inside the card is the Lots of Birds die.
These simple silhouettes are very effective against the busy background.
Also featured is the Layered Happy Birthday dies alternating in white & kraft.
This kraft card folds out in a trifold fashion.
I decorated the inside with the same patched background as I love the look of it so much.
& scribble hearts die cut from both white & kraft card.
I made a tag from the same background where you can write your message
or include money or a gift card.
I finished off the pages with a dotted stamped edge from the same stamp set
in Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink.
Hope you like my take on an Australian Country Themed card.
Cheers for now.
