I hope everyone had a great weekend! My family celebrated my nephew's 1st birthday yesterday; and even though it was a few days early I don't think he seemed to mind!
The party theme was John Deere/Farm. Since I didn't have anything pertaining to the John Deere side of things I decided to go with the farm theme in Pop-Up Card form. I love this type of card because lets face it - you can add sooooo many more elements working with the larger surface area of a card like this!
The barn on the upper portion of the card was hand cut, as were the barn doors. A little measuring and a sharp utility knife make the small cuts easy. As for the hay bale I cut small strips of Daffodil Delight Card Stock then trimmed them with the Fringe Scissors to give the look of straw. A few wraps of Baker's Twine completes the look.
Barn yard animals are a must to any farm yard and I have to say I held myself back from only making three. If you follow my blog at all you'll know all about my passion for punch art; if I could have kept going I think a sheep and a goat would have been a perfect addition! They are all done with SU! punches, as is the small fence.
I hope you liked the quick tour of my little barn yard! All the materials to make this pop up card are listed below; I wasn't able to do a tutorial for this one but if you have any questions please just ask.
