Down on the Farm Scene

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Mother's Day! Hope you are having a great day!
It was a rainy day here on Saturday. After housecleaning and laundry, I was able to play with my Cricut and design this card with the farm scenes. This really took a lot of time with the cutting and layering but I am happy with the results. I enjoy living in the country and enjoy the country scenes!
The card is cut from a piece of white Colorbok cardstock at 8" x 9" and  folded in half to make a 4" x 9" tall card. The background paper is Recollections Light Blue Distressed. I was happy to find this in my stash and thought it would be good for the sky. All other papers are from my scrap stash.
Cricut Cartridges:
Country Life - Looks like I am showcasing this cartridge as I added many of the images to the card.
Page 43 and 44 - Hen 1 and Hen 2 cut 1.25". I first cut the images smaller but the paper kept tearing in the Cricut so I had to increase the size.
Page 52 - Apple tree cut 2.75
Page 58 -  Barn cut 2.75"
Page 58 - Phrase Down On The Farm cut 1".
Page 63 - Windmill cut 2.50". Of course it had to be cut in yellow and green!
Page 72- Countryside on shift cut 2"- one was cut on flip. This is the greenery at the bottom of card. Using the layer1 on shift, cut two greenery at 1".
Page 73 - Wildflower image on shift for the green grass cut 1.5". This is the 2 light green grasses at fence.
Create a Critter
Page 29 - Sun cut 1.5"
Page 69 - Red Flowers (Accessory key) cut 1.5"
I used lots of inking which was a tough job with the smaller pieces. I had more on my fingers than on paper!

  5. What a darling scene! Coming from farm country and family that had been farmers for years, I may have to scraplift if you will alliw me to, and make a couple of these for relatives! TFS

  6. now that is one awesome farm.

  7. What an amazing scene! I thought it was a layout at first. It must have been so fiddly to put all this together on a 4x9 card - but the end result really is fabulous!! Great job!
