Down on the Farm...

Afternoon All!
Just back with some lovely news. I recently found out that I had won third place in the Woodware category of the Cardmaker of the Year competition run by Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. I was chuffed to bits with this as there were lots of entries from some really talented card makers. Anyway, I thought you might like to see my little entry. I decided to use Kraft card stock as my base and created a farm yard scene inside and on the outside with the Woodware stamps. I made a backdrop of a cloudy sky using Tumbled Glass Distress Inks and coloured all the animals with my Promarkers. I then added a ribbon tie and decorated it with threaded buttons. As a final touch and as the card was fairly bulky, I made box envelope punched with a Martha Stewart punch also out of the Kraft card.
Anyway, I hope you like it and are inspired to make a card which is decorated inside and out!
Thanks for looking.

  2. What a great card! Just what I had in mind when I designed the stamps. Well done on a well deserved win.
