Farm Life Pop-Up Card

Bear with me as I share my very first pop-up card!  I had a lot of fun making this! I watched a couple tutorials on youtube and then just gave it a try.  I found that it is easy to create a simple pop-up --and even multiples in one card, but then started thinking of ways to make it more stable, and decided dies designed for this are probably a good thing.

                        The cow has a 1.25 inch pop-out and the duck has a 0.5 inch pop-out.

The stamp set was a lot of fun to work with, as it just seemed perfect to create a scene where some things were near and some far.   

The images were stamped on regular cardstock and colored with Tombow water based markers and the blender pen, and the background was sponged with Distress Inks.

This is so cute and I love farm scenes since we live on a farm. However, no longer have any cattle. And, that suits me fine as they were a lot of work. But I did enjoy the antics of the little calves.
