100% Country - CardzTV Anything Goes Blog Hop

Howdy everyone.  Hope you are enjoy the blog hop so far.  If you came from Tonya's blog then you are headed in the right direction, if you just wander here and would like to enjoy the entire blog hop along with all it's blog candy then please go to Mary's blog to start the hop.

I had so much fun designing my project and I sure hope you like it too.



I decided to make an easel card but instead of doing the typical portrait style card, I would make mine landscape. 

Here is a quick video that shows you how I added all the different elements to my barn.


 

I started with Kraft card stock cut at 5 1/2" X 8 1/2".  I scored the card stock at 4 1/4" and 2 1/8".  I then cut another piece of Kraft card stock 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" for the front of my card.  Next I cut a piece of patterned paper 4" X 5 1/4" and attached to the card front.  Now came the fun part.

I started with the barn from the County Fair cartridge and sized it to 4.4" and 3.75". Once it was sized where I wanted it I flattened the image in Cricut Design Space so it would become a print and cut image.  Next I added the baby chick also from the County Fair cartridge. I just but him up in the hayloft window and using the sizing handles sized him down to fit within the opening. Once the chick was sized I grouped it with the barn and flattened it. 

Next I went to the Country Life cartridge and found the cute little pig with the chicken on top.  I inserted the image to my made and once again using the sizing handles sized it down to where I thought it looked good and again grouped it with the barn and then flattened it.  The water pump is also from the Country life cartridge and I also sized it, grouped it and flattened it.  Now all the images were one single print and cut file.

Next I needed something to put inside the card to create the stop for the Easel Card.  I found the ticket on the County Fair cartridge and using the Brand images I selected the two layers, colored them the colors I wanted and flattened them together. The finished ticket is sized 2.89" X 1.76".

All of my cuts were designed in Cricut Design Space and cut with my Cricut Explore.

Now I was ready to print and cut my two images which I did.  I attached the barn to the card front with some foam tape to give it some added dimension.  Next I adhered the card front base to the main card applying adhesive only to the small 2 1/8" X  5 1/4' section of the card front.

Next I stamped my sentiments using Memento Rich Cocoa ink and attached the ticket to the inside of the card again with some foam tape.

Both of my sentiments are from the CardzTV Country at Heart stamp set.

  23. Love the Bard and all of the other elements that you used on your card. Don't you just love the print then cut feature. I know I do. When you have little time to craft it really come in handy and you do have to worry about piecing all of the little pieces together.

  40. I so love your card Deanna!!! The print and cut feature is one of my favorites on my Explore. I love that I can take my Cricut images and make them print and cut and do a card when I'm in a hurry. But I never thought about adding different cuts like you have with your barn. That will for sure be in my future!!!! :)
