Barn Birthday Card

Good morning friends

It's Masculine Card Monday here on my blog, and I have a different kind of card to share today.  Here is a look at the front ...

I decorated the inside of the card, but instead of making it a Pop Up or Pop Stand card, I used the spinner from the Rectangle Pull Card to animate the party cow.  He spins up when the card is opened.

I cut the Grass Edge from the Outdoor Edges set to use as a stencil, and sponged the 'wheat field' with die ink and a makeup sponge. Below you can see how I attached the spinner:

LOVE this little barbed wire fence too. It had been on my MFT Wish List for a very long time, and I finally ordered it. It goes so well with Karen Burniston's new Farm collection!

  1. I love your cards!
    Hello from Elma

  2. I like the barn pop up. If you ever want to sell your barn die I'm interested in buying it. Or, if you hear of anyone who has one to sell I am interested. The top half of the barn makes a cute tent.

    1. Hi - if I ever come across one for sale I'll let you know!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read them all, and appreciate them greatly!
Have a great day,
