E-I-E-I-O

So here we are on the rolling hills of the farm - riding the tractor back from the fields into the barn just over the ridge there!

This is another fun new set from H & M Stamps that looks like kids drew the images with broad crayon strokes. It also includes several farm animals - but today I just used the barn, tractor and apple tree - as well as the E-I-E-I-O sentiment!



I cut the rolling hills with my curved paper trimmer from Close to My Heart and then ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Mini Mosaic folder to look like land. I love the trees in the Basic Grey Designer paper - it was just perfect for this card.

I cut out the tree and tractor and popped them up on foam dimensionals. I stamped them again and layered the big tire and the top of the tree over the first images, again with foam dimensionals. This card measures 6 1/2" x 3 1/4" - a fun size card for a fun farm scene!

Please be sure to check out the other Design Team members cards - you can find links to them on Heather's blog here.
