Cow and Barn Birthday

Thanks for joining us for 
DD's Crafts Fabulous 50 Birthday Blog Hop!!

If you just came from Julie the  Cricut Chick's blog (cricutchick.com) you are in the right place... if not, please head over to Debbie's blog at craftydeb-ddscrafts.blogspot.com to start at the beginning.



I made the card into a shaped card with my Gypsy. 
I've always been in love with shaped cards and this one is no exception! I sized the barn from Create a Critter to 5 1/2" wide and welded two of the shapes together to form the card base.


The cow is cut at 2" (all layers) and the bird is cut at 3/4".
The grass is from Paper Doll Dress Up and I inked the layers with dark green.
I thought the barn needed something extra so I added the white strips of paper to the barn doors.

The sentiment "Wish BIG!" is from Scrappy Mom's Stamps "Simple Sentiments."

"Happy, Happy Birthday!" is from Scrappy Mom's Simple Sentiments too.


Before you jump to the next stop, please leave a comment (and don't forget your contact info)

I love your shape cards and this is no exception. I still need to work with my Gypsy to weld, but I always move it to the bottom of the list to do. Summer will not be long enough to try everything I want. Your cow is a cutie!
