Good morning friends~ Double D Challenges has a sweet inspiration challenge going on right now, Down On The Farm.
I was inspired by the sunflowers and just had to pair them up with Brownie the Cow from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I mean, how often do you get to use a cow when you're making a card, right?
The front of the card shows a field of sunflowers from Frantic Stamper and pumpkins from Impression Obsession on a rolling country hill. The sentiment is from PTI and is heat embossed in gold with the remaining part of the sentiment stamped in black.
The inside of the card reveals a fun pop-up surprise! The Elizabeth Craft Pop-Up Fence is so easy to use and it comes with the die for creating a pop-up. I actually popped the fence up a little differently than the directions because I wanted the card to stand as it is and not pop up when laying flat. I tucked two more sunflowers behind the fence with Brownie and some pumpkins along the outside of the fence. A little red bird from Cheery Lynn's Birds of Earth And Sky is perched on one of the pumpkins and the clouds are from Memory Box Stitched Cloud Trio.
Here's a couple of close up views of the pop up.
Here's a bonus card I made a while ago but never got around to posting.
I used Elizabeth Crafts Countryscapes Backyard to decorate up the fence.
I love how all these sets work so well together. I cut the shapes out of water color card stock and colored them up using Zigs and water to blend and mute the colors a bit.
I'll also be entering this pop-up card into the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
