Crafty Secrets Farm Fresh Birthday Card
I have a Farm Fresh birthday card to share with you today. It will make you think of fields of corn, freshly mowed hay and roadside fruit and veggie stands. Just a few of the things I love the most about summertime.
This was such a fun card to make…and easy, too. I used the French Hens paper from Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Typography CD as my background. I stitched this in my signature “wonky stitching style” onto a black cardstock base. This was glued onto a 5″ x 7″ side fold cardstock base. The chicken wire paper (from the same CD) was cut into a fishtail banner shape and matted onto black cardstock. Then I dug out my Farm Fresh Creative Scraps and went to town! The cute focal image was stitched onto squares of denim and red burlap. I slipped the “country roads” sign beneath this focal image and cut out the tiny seed packets to use as a banner.
The sassy farm girl was fussy cut, inked and mounted behind the focal image. I cut little slits so that I could sort of wrap her around. I did the same thing with the fresh peach image. It reminds me of a vintage roadside billboard. Foam dots add lots of dimension and a cute little vintage clothespin adds to the country appeal of this kitschy card. To pull it all together, I added a double bow. The bottom layer is tied with 3/8″ red gingham and then topped with 1/4″ black gingham. I found the cute corn button in my stash. My daisies were inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to make them blend in .
The inside of the card uses the same paper, along with a little scrap piece of red paper from the Creating with Retro Christmas CD. I computer journaled the sentiment onto the frame from the Farm Chicks Digital Art Stamp set using a fun font. Easy peasy!
