First Card for Sarah Hallam's new "Cuddle Upz, Funny Farm Cd.2"

Good Afternoon Everyone, you will soon be in for a treat, as my dear friend Sarah Hallam of Peerless Designs has a brand new Cd which will be previewed on Create and Craft on the 21st June at 10am, and this one has all farm animals on it. And Ive been asked again if I would create some samples for her to show on the day and I do hope the results will please you to.
Anyway I decided to use this Rabbit image for my first card and here it is and youve also got to realise that Sarah does all her own drawing and colouring for these CDs, so it does take time for her to create them.
For my card I have used four papers and one Topper plus a label which I took into My Craft Studio to put text on it. The base card is a 7"x 7" easel card, for the top of the card I have used a greeny brown base card with a paper that has a rabbit patterned background and then on top is a diamond pattern that has been mounted onto square and stuck into the centre, across the middle is yet another paper but on this one I have used a rabbit border punch on both edges then on top of this is a brown grosgrain ribbon thats been attached to the back of the first mount. I then positioned my mounted image in the middle.
For the inside I used a different base paper with a rabbit border and again across the middle is the same paper that I used for the top card and this also has had both edges punched with the same rabbit border punch and the same brown ribbon was also wrapped around and attached to the back of the mount. I also used my sentiment tag in the middle on some foam tape so that it will act as a stopper for the easel top.
Now that Ive finished this first sample I want to make a start on the rest of them I will post them as I go along so you also can see what Sarah has instore for you, they are certainly cute and they include, sheep, calf, ducks, goats, pigs etc, decoupage, inserts, tags and ribbons, bookmarks and even ready made cards. Im sure you will enjoy the images as they are so suitable for everyone including the difficult men.
