I don't remember where these ears of wheat dies were sourced and I don't think I've ever used them before, which is probably why they had lain almost forgotten in a storage box of dies.I cut them from some craft paper which was a pretty good colour but rather flimsy, so I cut a second set from plain white card and stuck one set on top of the other.To add a little life to them, I decided to play with a few Distress Oxide inks to take away the one dimensional look of the die cuts. I stamped the sentiment, from Hero Arts, with the same inks as I had used on the wheat, drying with my heat gun between each layer.
The distressed square panel was dry embossed with a Stampin Up folder.

I took a little liberty with the sketch this time using the bunch of wheat to represent the smaller of the two squares in the sketch! I hope that is permitted.



  1. I absolutely love this Chrissie. There is so much detail here and yet it all is so CAS. I adore the texture of the panel-this fits in well with the wheat...reminds me of a basket at Harvest Festival! And adding the inks to the wheat adds a lovely depth...not sure why but this is what I see! I especially like the distessed edges..again reminds me of a basket. (did you mean this?) And do I spot some gems on the wheat or is that the colour...whatever it looks perfect. This is one stunning card-a feast for my eyes. Thanks for joining CASology x

  2. Love this. You create the most beautiful CAS cards I have ever seen and you truly are a master at designing them.

  3. Beautiful card that honors both challenges! Thanks for playing along with us at CASology and FMS!
