Hay There

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this last Saturday in June. This month just flew by- don't you think? 

But I can say I am enjoying these days of summer. It's been warm and sunny here in Pittsburgh. Just perfect conditions for our vegetable gardens and also for all the local farms. Soon the local sweet corn on the cob will be available. One of the many treats of summer I so look forward to.

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. I am featuring the new Farm Cow Peeker + Farm Pig Peeker and created a birthday card. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:

I started off by cutting the cow & pig images. I used various colors of Stampin'-Up cardstock but you could always use white cardstock and then color the images with your favorite coloring medium. 
Since these are peeker images I decided to have them peeking from behind a "wood" themed paper. I wanted to create the idea of barn wood or a fence. It's cut at 1 5/8". For the top part I used a blue sky themed designer paper and attached it under the wood paper. It's cut at 2 3/4". I cut the papers and used double sided tape to attach them to a piece of white card stock. This entire panel is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
Next I started the card assembly. I attached the cow & pig peekers behind the wood paper panel. Then, I attached a dark brown layering panel. It measures 5 5/8" x 4 1/4". This was attached to a medium blue card base. This measure 5 3/4" x 4 1/2".
To finish off my card, I stamped sentiments in the top corners of the card and then the happy birthday sentiment on the wood paper. The top sentiments are from the MFT set "the whole herd" and the happy birthday sentiment is from a set from MFP (no longer in business) - "north american woods".
And that's it for me for this post. So until next time......God bless!
