I just love the name of that company, don't you?
So, step right up, create a project, and scurry on over to their site for your chance to win a
For my project, I decided to make Father's Day card #2 (remember, I have 3 dads). This one is for my dear father-in-law. He's a suburban farmer. He loves to raise vegetables in his huge garden. I'm pretty much a mess when it comes to gardening. Let's just say my thumb is definitely NOT green. Looking at my thumb, it's kind of brown. Must be all the Distress Ink I used on this card.
Anyway, here's my project for today's challenge!
The "Animal Magic" part of my card is how that critter got up there in the hay loft--the one peeking out of that window, and also how that little chick got up on top of the door. It's MAGIC, I tell ya... ANIMAL MAGIC!!!
Here is what it looks like inside!
AH HA! So, that window-peeking critter was actually two window-peeking critters! Ok, so how many of you got the pun of my sentiment? Anybody? (HINT: it has to do with the critters above the sentiment).
I paper-pieced the card by hand (the barn), and used Distress ink on the edges of the "boards" of the barn so that you could actually see that they are boards. I used stitched square dies to make the frame for the window and the X on the barn door (with some creative cutting apart). I colored my stamped images with my coveted Prismacolor pencils. I added a little bow to critter #2...and cut off her "beard". LOL
The rest of the card is pretty much just pen work on sentiments I printed off, and some foam tape and glue.
This card is living proof that you don't have to have a boat-load of product to produce an uber cute card. Basically, all you need are: stamps, coloring medium, cardstock, and a little imagination. Oh yeah...and some sort of adhesive helps too.
