Thank Moo!

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a card I created using the new Farm themed dies designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs which will be available for sale at the end of the month. 

On Friday at the Collins Group 2015 Spring Papercrafting Education and Tradeshow, Karen Burniston unveiled her newest designs that she will be releasing for Elizabeth Craft Designs. This time round it's all about the farm, with three new fun Character dies ... Cheepers the Chicken; Virgil the Pig and Brownie the Cow; a Barn Pop Stand Card  and Hey There Pop Stand Card die sets. Plus a set of clear stamps that are themed to be used with the new dies.

The first thing I did when I started playing with these new dies was to die cut each of the three new character dies (Brownie the Cow; Virgil the Pig and Cheepers the Chicken) twice and assemble them all once I had my farmyard animals to keep me company I started creating cards for them to live on :) Of course I just had to make a Barn Pop Stand Card.

For this card I used the new Barn Pop Stand Card die set to create a Pop Stand Card. I die cut the Pop Stand die to the right of the card so that I was then able to use the small pop stand die in the Hay There Pop Stand Card set to the left of the barn to add the hay stack.

I added a Cow to the bottom of each opposite corner and also added a speech bubble from the Rectangle Accordion Card die set to which I added "Thank Moo"

One of the fun things about the barn is that Karen designed this set so that you are able to open and close the barn doors ... what fun! So when you slide the barn doors open on this card it reveals the message Hay There which is from the Hay There Pop Stand Card die set.

Here is the view of my card so you can see the back of the barn. On this card I left the barn so it looked like the back, but you could also decorate it to look like the front if you wanted to.

Here is an overhead view of my card so you can see the whole card a little easier. 

And finally the front of my card, I have added one of Karen's new sentiments from her Farm Greetings Clear Stamp set.
