Farm Time Birthday Card!

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Crazy weather here lately!  I had hoped to get this posted sooner, but we had a tornado warning last night and no power :(  This card was made for my nephew who lives on (and loves) the farm!  Create-a-critter is definitely one of my favorite cartridges.  If you are looking for a cartridge to purchase, it is a must have!

This is a standard A2 size card.  All of the cardstock is from The Paper Studio.  The grassy hill (in the background), I cut by hand and then ran it through my Cuttlebug in my swiss dots folder. Everything else on the card is cut from Create-a-Critter.  The swirls on the clouds were created with my d'vine swirls Cuttlebug folder. This was my first time doodling with the white gel pen!  I think it turned out cute though.  I also used a silver metallic Sharpie on the roof of the barn to make it look like metal. Of course there is a bit (or a bunch) of sparkle.  The glitter is a mix of craft glitter glue from Wal-mart (clouds & grass), the Target dollar spot (cow horns) and Stickles (cow spots). 

The cuts (all from Create-a-Critter):
* Barn & Cow  cut at 2"
* Clouds cut at 1", 1.25" &  1.5"
* Grass (inside and outside) cut at 1"
* Happy Birthday cut at 1.75"

I linked this up at: 
Be sure to link up something of your own!

I'm also entering it in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday Challenge 

Best of all he absolutely loved the card!  I'd love to hear your thoughts.  I'll have another project posted in a couple of days so don't forget to check back!  *~*Thanks for stopping by*~*

Love this card! :o) The cow is precious and you know I love all the sparkle. This is so hilarious because last night you mentioned how similar we are... and yesterday I literally planned to d'vine-swirl-sparklify clouds in a new card. I had to laugh! We have such exquisite taste. ;) Beautiful, happy card! :o)

Hugs and blessings! :o)
