Gotta Love the Rustic Water Can from Country Home

Card, Country Home, Rustic, Watering Can, Stampin Blends

I was feeling a little rustic when I created today's galvanized looking water can card.  I'm sure it's no surprise I truly adore the Country Home Stamp Set.  I actually have a watering can just like this one sitting on my kitchen cabinet.  With that being said, it doesn't take much for me to get those creative juices flowing with this set.  As you'll see in the creative video below, I took my first layer of cardstock and cut off 1" from the right hand side, then cut the 1" strip 1" off from the top, and finally took the remaining 3" piece and cut off 1" from the bottom.  I then placed all the pieces into the embossing folder making sure the alignment was exact.  This ensures that all of my patterns will line up when it's adhered to the card base.

Once I had that completed it was time to begin coloring with my Stampin' Blends Markers.  I simply coordinated my flowers and leaves beginning with my cardstock color choice and just add libbed from there.  I made sure to create a shadow from the water can to give the illusion that it's sitting on something and not floating in mid air.  My final touch was our Silver Metallic Thread around the bottom of the water can layer.  I must admit this card feels very HOMEY to me and I hope you think so too and can think of many loved ones it would be a perfect creation for.
