Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! For today’s blogpost, I’m sharing with you how I created this cute card set using the Farmhouse Summer Collection from Echo Park Paper Co. To create my card set, I’ve also used a variety of products from Ranger Ink, Super Stock from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine and adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and learn how I created my card set at home. If you haven’t seen the Farmhouse Summer Collection from Echo Park Paper Co., you’re going to want to go to your nearest scrapbook store and check it out. It’s usually easy for me to pick out which patterned papers I want use on my cards, but this collection really made me choose which ones to layer with one another. Once I figured out the layers, I added distressing, rips into parts of the papers as well as inked all the edges using Black Soot Distress Ink from Ranger Ink. I also decided that on the third layer of patterned paper, I would add two to three enamel dots out of the Farmhouse Summer Collection from Echo Park Paper Co. in the top left and bottom right corners of the paper. I chose one of the 3×4 cards and trimmed it down from the Farmhouse Summer Collection by Echo Park Paper Co. To add some extra interest in the wreath, I added the Blessed word strip to the middle of it. Once the penant was layered on to some of the patterned papers, I chose three banners out of the Ephemera from the Farmhouse Summer Collection by Echo Paper Co. and layered them on the left hand side of the patterned papers that the pennant is attached to. As well I added a enamel dot to the dot on the hanger portion of the wreath image. For the second card, I tried to coordinate the patterned paper with the other card. This allowed me to use some of the other favourites that I have out of the Farmhouse Summer Paper Pack by Echo Park Paper Co. I distress the edges of the papers as well as added some rips as desired. Don’t forget to ink your edges using Black Soot Distress Ink from Ranger Ink. In the top right corner and bottom left corners of the layered patterned papers, I used enamel dots out of the collection. The layered tray image, was fussy cut from one of the 3×4 cards out of the Farmhouse Summer Paper Pack by Echo Park Paper Co. The word strip came off of on the patterned papers from the same paper pack. I don’t know about you, but I’m hopeless when it comes to trying to create a scallop border on the bottoms of my paper, so I cut one of the scalloped frames in half out of the Farmhouse Summer Frames & Tags package from Echo Park Paper Co. This allowed me to have a nice looking scallop border underneath my word strip. Once all of the elements were layered onto the card, I added the scallop border strip and word strip as desired. Here are a few closeups of the finished cards. Thank you for joining me today and taking the time to check out my blog post. I hope that my Every Day Card Set has inspired you to create your own at home.
