I want to make a special card for a friend’s daughter who is having her birthday party at a City Farm, so to me, that’s was a perfect excuse to sit down in the front of the TV with my box of punches and some cardstock scraps last night, and make farm yard animals!
The punches I used to make these included the Two Step Owl, Word Window, Cropodile, Scallop Circle and the Trio Flower (discontinued). I also used the Big Shot Circles No.2 Die for parts of the cow and pig. Amazing what you can do with a bit of sponging and a few snips here and there! I think the big eyed chicken is my favourite – she has the harrassed look that most mothers get from time to time when trying to account for all their chicks.
Not too sure about the cow – it looks a bit ‘goatish’ to me – what do you think?
I may at some point do a free tutorial on how I made these if anyone’s interested. I’ll be working on my step card for the birthday girl today, so check back on Sunday to see how it turned out!
Thanks for taking a peek today!
