By The Seeds You Plant



Hi Friends! 

Today I am sharing a fun card using the Artistic Outpost stamp sets, Seed Packets Background, Harvest and Grunge Elements along with the ODBD Fun and Fancy Folds Z-Fold Card, ODBD Tag Trio Dies and ODBD Blooming Garden Collection 6x6 Paper Pad (all available at Our Daily Bread Designs).  

I have also incorporated the Just Add Ink "Just Add 'G'" Challenge in to the design (G=Gardening, Green, Gloves, Grunge Elements, Glitter (hard to see a bit of glitter in the sun rays around the farmer's head).

If you have not had a chance to visit the AO Blog or the Just Add Ink site yet, I hope you will do so- fabulous inspiration from my AO DT Sisters as well as the JAI DT and Gallery!! 

To create this card:

Fussy-cut the shovel/planting tools image from the sheet of ODBD Blooming Garden Collection6x6 Paper, layer onto black cardstock and fussy cut close to the edge.

Cut the pieces of the ODBD Blooming Collection 6x6 Paper using the ODBD Fun and Fancy Folds Kraft Z-Fold card as guide, distress the edges of the designer paper with a distressing tool, mount onto black cardstock before adhering each to the Z-Fold card base.

Wrap hemp twine around the space at the bottom of the center fold and add the hemp bow.

Ink the AO Seed Packets Background image as well as the sentiment and the farmer image from ODBD Harvest with ground espresso distress ink and stamp onto sand cardstock.

Watercolor the the AO Seed Packets Background image with crushed pumpkin, peeled paint and wild honey distress inks, die cut with the ODBD Tag Trio Dies (also cutting another tag from black cardstock), split the black tag in half and layer behind the AO Seed Packets Background tag.


Add an antique brad with hemp twine to the tag and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam.

Trim the stamped AO Harvest sentiment and farmer image, mount both onto black cardstock (trimming close to the edges), sponge pumice stone distress ink over all edges (including the card base and tag) and add distressing with the large splatter stamp from AO Grunge Elements with frayed burlap distress ink.

Mount the farmer image along with the sentiment using dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Thanks again for taking the time to visit and I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friends!

Wonderful vintage style. I really like the brightness of your tag against the neutrals on the rest of the card. Chantell JAI

You've knocked the "G" challenge out of the park with this great collage creation, Julie! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week. :)
