Cowboy Leather

Inspiration

Today's card is another Heartfelt Creations' project; I found some very cool paper at Joann's - it looks like leather! I thought it would be perfect for the images in the last 2 HC releases: the collection and the collection. I used a sketch from Splitcoast - an OLD one - challenge SC118.

BASE CARD and MATS

Start with a piece of dark green card stock measuring 7" x 10", score at 5" and fold. Add a piece of light green card stock measuring 4 3/4" x 6 3/4", and light orange card stock measuring 4 5/8" x 6 5/8".

LEATHER LAYER

Tear a mat layer of the leather paper measuring 4 1/2" x 6 1/2". Mount onto the light orange layer.

Emboss another piece of leather paper measuring 3" x 6 1/2". Cut into a long triangle. Use Vintage Photo ink, lightly color the embossed leather paper. Mount onto the front of the card.

The reverse side of the leather paper is a tan color. Stamp 4 rope images using Sepia ink on the tan side of the paper. Cut/emboss all 4 out using the matching die. Mount the rope images along the triangle (they will overlap).

IMAGE

Stamp the image in Sepia ink on ivory card stock measuring 3 1/4" x 4 1/4". Color with chalks. Use the ink blending tool to add Walnut Stain around the edges of the image. Mount on a light green mat measuring 3 3/8" x 4 3/8", then onto a dark green mat measuring 3 1/2" x 4 1/2". Mount on the front of the card.
