I made this card for Kim, one of the employees at the CT Humane Society where Cindy and I volunteer. Kim is a HARD WORKER and a true animal lover. She's an inspiration for all the animals she cares for. I didn't know it until after I made the card, but it's her 30th birthday this coming Friday. I gave her the card early because she took the week off - so I know I'm not spoiling the surprise!
This spring, we had a huge clean-up at the Humane Society and Kim helped plant the vegetable garden for the rabbits and small animals we have awaiting homes. She enjoys gardening, so I figured I'd use this MFT "Can Ya Dig It" set to make her a card.
Now, I can't see Kim wearing a dress to garden, but it's what our MFT lady decided to wear, so I had to go with it! I stamped her out on the kraft paper and then paper pieced her dress and hat. I created a flower box on the ground and colored in with prisma pencils and gamsol. I added the flowers, grass and clouds. I used an EK Success punch as well.
For the inside, I repeated the border punch and stamped a wheel barrow. I grabbed a PTI flower stamp from the vintage picnic set and it fits pretty perfectly in the wheelbarrow (you just have to leave off one of the flowers)
I punched a square scallop and used PTI sentiments from their birthday set and some trowels from MFT.
I was quite happy with the result. I own about five MFT sets and for some reason I usually struggle with them - but this one came together more easily for me! I'll have to go back to it again!
