I Like You To Meet Farmer John & His Family



Today McMahon Five Designs has some great digital images and papers in this week’s release.  I chose to make a Thank You card (a little different than most Thank You cards) but different can be fun too.  Before I share my project I like to introduce the digital images and papers I chose to create my project.  If you haven’t used digital images before today would be a great day to start your collection.  They make creating cards a breeze because most of the digital images come already colored for you.  And some are in outline form for you to color in your favorite colors.

Farmer Lily Color & Outline

Farm Friends Color & Outline


My Project

(You will notice that I used something from all three digital designs.)





Details:  I kept it simple this time.  I used the farm scene paper from the digital paper collection and added both John and Lilly and some of the farm animals.  I added the sun which is from another paper collection called Sunshine and Rain.  And used a font from my font collection for the Thank You sentiment.  I wish I could tell you why I chose to make this  card a Thank you card but I just thought it would be something a little different to send to someone.  Behind the farm scene is another paper from the collection called Chicken Wire.  On the inside I wanted to add something bright so I used the paper called Chevron (yellow).  Then I took the Barn from the Farm Friends collection and traced the shape using  my Silhouette Portrait and then offset the shape using red paper.

The digital image scene, chicken wire print and the chevron yellow print was all printed on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Card Stock (80#).  And its on sale too!
