Country Boy


As you may have read in some of my earliest posts, my brother is a farmer. So, I always try to come up with some kind of farm-themed card for his birthday. His birthday was back in June and I'm just now getting around to posting this. Boy, the summer sure has gotten away from me! Anyway, here's the card I made for him. The yellow stuff is supposed to be wheat, which is one of the crops that he grows. I used the small swirly branch image from the Over the Rainbow stamp set in first and second generation stamping to make "rows" of wheat and then cut them out. I just slightly overlapped them when putting them on the card.

All supplies from CTMH
Stamps: Hay There, Over the Rainbow, Say It In Style
Paper: Splendor B&T clouds, Splendor B&T green print, Clover Meadow textured cardstock, Cocoa cardstock, Colonial White cardstock
Inks: Cocoa, Goldrush
