Create A Critter - Howdy

I am not crazy about this card. I think I cut the horse to big but too late now! I do like the paisley barn though! Wouldn't it be great to be driving in the country and suddenly see a red paisley barn!!

Cricut Expression
Cricut carts - Create A Critter
Cardstock - Stampin Up; Core'dinations; Prism, Core'dinations Pearl; Silver metallic
Patterned paper - various
Stampin up markers
Cat Eye Inks
Spareparts brads
ProMarkers





There are extra layers on the horse because I did go back and hide contour so I could have a black layer for the eyes. Now if I had figured out that I could use one of my Promarkers to just color the area like I did for the hooves and the nose I could have saved myself some time and cardstock!

I do like the horse being the colors of a Palomino. I have always thought Palomino's were just gorgeous!





I think I should have put the Howdy with the star on the inside of the card so it would have made the front look a little less busy. For the inside I just cut a strip of the paisley and used the Stampin Up small star punch and then backed it with the same metallic cardstock that I cut the star on the front of the card from.

If you would like to make this card you can download the cut file here...HOWDY


Tomorrow I will be posting a really cute owl card, it is also a Create A Critter theme. I also have stamp club tomorrow night so won't be posting any projects on Friday. HOWEVER, I will be posting the giveaway on Friday so be sure to check back!!!

  11. Okie, you made me feel good when reading your post because you sound just like me as I'm going through the trials and tribulations of how things look or fit as I'm making a card. And I guess all those "should have beens" and "should have done this" are how we learn so that the next time we make it, it will be even better! I still like your card!!--Pat N.

  26. I saw a lot of funky painted barns when I lived in the panhandle of Oklahoma, but I would have to agree, seeing a paisly barn would rock.

    Make a paint pony, they are my favorite. Guess I am going to have to get this cart just so I can make a paint pony.

  28. The paisley barn is darling. But then I live in Tennessee where is has always been the thing to paint your barn some way or the other.

  29. I think it looks cute! It makes the horse the center of attention and makes the barn look like it is in the distance!
