Happy Birthday from the Barnyard

October 15, 2016

My uncle celebrates his birthday this month as well.  He works on a small farm with a lot of different kinds of animals. I thought it would be fitting if the barnyard animals were wishing him a happy birthday.



Size:  Horizontal side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by creating a kraft card base. I dry embossed some dots on the front of the card base.

Then, I die cut a stitched rectangle panel form water color paper. I stamped the images on the panel. I masked the pig, so I could put the cow behind him. On a separate piece of water color paper, I stamped 1 balloon, 3 birthday hats, a present, and the cupcake.

I used Distress Inks to water color these images. Once the ink was dry, I fussy cut out the balloon, cupcake, present, and hats. I attached those to the stamped panel with some DIY foam dots. I used a think black Sharpie marker to draw in the balloon strings.

Lastly, I adhered the stamped panel to the kraft card base and the card was done.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Critters on the Farm, Year Two, Admit One, To a Fungi, and Baked with Love

Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Small Stitched Rectangles

Ink: Versa Fine

Distress Inks: I’m sorry I forgot to record which colors I used for these images


Hope you enjoyed the card
