Stacked Animal Card

Have you seen those rustic pictures of a bunch of barnyard animals stacked on top of each other?  I have been wanting to create a "cricut version" of these images for a while now.  When the latest cartridge Folk Art Festival was released, I knew that now was my time:

Material Used:
  • Cricut cartridge Folk Art Festival
  • BasicGrey Serendipity 12x12 paper pad
  • BasicGrey Serendipity button
  • American Crafts jute string
  • Webster's Pages designer trim
  • Stampin' Up! Pool Party 1/2" seam binding
  • Ranger distress inks in Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Worn Lipstick and Fired Brick
  • Stampin' Up! Square Lattice embossing folder
  • Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Divine Swirl embossing folders
  • Copic Sepia inking pen
CCR file:

  1. Using the file provided, first cut your card shape and layer.  Using the Square Lattice embossing folder, emboss the layer and add your first ribbon layer before adhering to the card base. 
  2. Using an ink pen, create faux stitching around the card layer.  Of course, you could actually sew it if desired. =)  String your second ribbon layer to the top of the card, running it through the openings on the left side and creating a bow on the right.
  3. Using different patterns and or colored cardstock for each animal, cut and assemble each animal.  Emboss any animals as desired and ink the edges using coordinating colors.  Begin stacking and adhering to the card base starting with the cow.  Alternate the direction each animal is facing as you add the sheep, hog and rooster.
  4. Using jute string, tie a coordinating button to the middle of your seam binding/ribbon bow.
