Today’s sneak peek set is called Country Road and was created by the wonderful Lauren Pope. She created another wonderful silhouette stamp set, this time with country images.

For my sample I stamped  the roaster in Versamark Ink and embossed it with white embossing powder on Kraft cardstock. It was cut and embossed with one of the new Marvelous Square dies. With the die still on the cardstock, a sentiment from the new set was stamped in Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The edges were sponged in the same color. A smaller Marvelous Square die was used to cut and embossed more Kraft cardstock. The four cut out pieces were adhered underneath the edges of the image layer .

Two pieces of white cardstock were cut and embossed with Marvelous Square dies and were used under the Kraft layer. Pearls were added to the Marvelous Square layers. Patterned paper was cut and embossed with a Grand Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched before the paper was adhered to a card base, created out of white cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die.
