Farm themed baby card


Farm Baby Congratulations

Inside: It’s a Boy! Congratulations

One of the guys I worked with last year just had his first baby so I wanted to make him a congratulations card. From what I could get out of him is that his wife was doing a vintage farm theme…well that’s how I interpreted it! So I went through my files and searched the internet and thought Farm Critters and Barn from Doodle Pantry fit the theme. I was stumped at first as what to do with the image because I just didn’t want to print it out and stick it on the card. So I went back to the internet where I found this awesome card on The Rubber Cafe Design Team Blog. The design it was the perfect design for all the elements I wanted on the card. My best friend, Stephanie, took my ideals and made the cute saying!

Old Barn Sympathy Card


Old Barn Sympathy

A friend’s father died last week so I wanted to make them a special sympathy card. The dad owned and lived on a farm so I thought this barn image from Doodle Pantry would personalize the card just for them. The red base is the only thing new and not from the scrap bin!

1) September Card Challenge @ – Bonus category – use any type of metal. I used brads I have had for YEARS. Funny how you won’t use a color for a long time then all of sudden it is the perfect on for tons of projects. I have use this color brad more in the last year than I have in 8 years of owning them!
2) Use Your Stuff Challenge #151 – Brads
3) Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #234 (SSSC234) – Use the sketch provided as inspiration. Instead of a circle image I went with a rectangle by making the card a 5 x 7
