This is another card I am going to put in the FCCB challenge, but basically just to share it. I started off trying to come up with a zoo theme and it ended up a little more barnyard. Hee! Hee! Hope you like the way it turned it. It was lots of fun to make.
The carts used in this one are A Child’s Year (tear), Paper Doll Dress-up (cow), Calligraphy Collection (Hearts), Pooh and Friends (weed patch), Paper Dolls for Everyday (barn) and Pooh Font (wooden accents and letters).
The cow was cut at a height of 4.00 out of black, white and tan. I used a brown Cricut Marker first and then cut the image so that the details would be highlighted. This is an accessory image, so I cut the other layers by hand. I just had some fun with some chalk and white and black markers making details stand out on the cow. I used a rust colored marker to make the freckles. The weed patch is cut at a height of 1 inch. This was also highlighted with a brown Cricut Marker. The fonts used were welded together using the Gypsy, at a height of 1.00 and cut from brown cardstock. The shadow was cut out of white. A brown Cricut Marker was also used on these to bring out the detail of the wood on both layers. I then used a white opaque marker and added a few extra accents. The corners on the card are the capital letter L and cut at a height of 1.30. The hearts are cut at a height of 2.50 and then 3.50 for the larger. The little tear on the cow is cut at a height of .50. The barn was cut from dark red, black and white stock. The layers were cut by hand and then detailed by hand. These were cut at a height of 3.00..
The card is made from 8 ½ x 11 inch red card stock folded in half. The bottom mat is black and cut 5 ¼ x 8 ¼ inches. The second mat is from a light blue grunge paper. It’s cut 5 x 8 inches.
When it was all assembled, I used some glossy glaze and brushed it over the wood pieces just to make them stand out a little more. I also used it on the little tear on the cow’s face to look wet.
We sure hope you enjoy the card. We had lots of fun making it!
