Good Morning everyone.
Today im sharing a birthday card i made for one of my brothers birthdays. On his farm he likes to work with rare breeds and has been a little part of a revival in a few of them. His dairy herd is a mixed bag of breeds and his 2 donkeys like to run with the herd too. He has just taken on 2 pigs of a lesser breed.
This lot of Katzelkraft farm animals sure are a mixed bunch and very rare indeed with the lilac & green cow, purple pig and orange yellow donkey. Mr Cockeral is a bit hyper and into everything and the lime, orange & pink duck has just lost the plot😁
7x7 scalloped card blank. On a piece of white card i stamped out my animals, i didn't bother masking them as knew i would be decoupaging the front ones so that would hide any overlapped stamping. I also stamped out the cow, pig and duck onto another piece of card.
I coloured them all simply with distress oxide inks. I then cut out the extra ones.
I mounted my topper onto black cardstock and added a die cut white frame with foam tape.
I cut a piece of white card smaller than my cardfront and embossed with a hessian effect embossing folder and lightly inked over the top with pale blue ink, i then attached to black card and my card base.
I then added my extra animals with glue gel with the duck right at the front out of the frame. I computer printed my sentiment to say 'Rare Breeds.......Oh Yes Indeed' in a funky font and cut out wonky, mounted onto black card and attached to the card front. I doodled in some borders and added glossy accents to the eyes to finish.
A close up of the motley crew. My brother actually has geese and not ducks but no goose stamp in the set so went with the fabulous duck instead.
