Today I’m sharing a card with a red barn and farm animals that is so full of “stuff” that it looks like I threw everything on it but the kitchen sink.  I wanted to get a complete scene with the barn, tractor and several animals so I built the layers moving up the card front.  This is as cartoony as it gets but I love how it turned out.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Barn, Tractor, Farm Animals, Chicken and Squirrels, Tiny Flower Buds, Tree Panel #2, Grass, Grass #2  and Deckle Hills.  I’ve made several cards using these dies but my favorite is the Barnyard Z Fold card.

Come see how I made this red barn and farm animals card.

Tree Panel and Grass Layers

  • Cut the Tree Panel and grass layers using green cardstock.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach to the card base.
  • Attach the grass layers to the tree panel and card base using mounting tape.

The Barn and Tractor

  • Cut the barn using red and black cardstock.
  • Assemble the barn pieces and attach to the barn base using rolled strips of double stick tape.
  • Cut the tractor using green and black cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces and attach together using mounting tape and glossy accents.
  • Tuck the barn in behind the top grass layer and attach to the base using mounting tape.
  • Tuck the tractor in behind the front grass layer and attach in place using mounting tape.

Come see how I made this fun red barn and farm animals card.

The Animals

  • Cut the horse and cow using white cardstock.
  • Color the cow using a black marker.
  • Color the horse using Antique Linen ink and a mini applicator and fill in the mane and nose using a brown marker.
  • Cut the chickens using yellow cardstock and color using mini applicators and Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade inks.
  • Tuck the animals in behind the grass layers and attach to the scene using mounting tape.

Finish the Card

  • Cut grass sprigs using green cardstock , tuck them in behind the grass layers and attach using glossy accents.
  • Cut tiny flower buds using yellow cardstock.
  • Apply touches of Spiced Marmalade ink to the centers.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the flowers to the grass sprigs using glossy accents.
  • Cut a black rooster and place it on the top of the barn and attach with mounting tape.  I know…….that is one big weather vane for that small barn  but I just couldn’t help myself. LOL!

Come see how I made this colorful red barn and farm animals card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my red barn and farm animals card.  There is lots to see on this small 5.50″ x 4.25″ space but I think it is fun.  These images are perfect to use to create all occasion cards for a farmer or farm lover.  Check out this Red Barn Cards link on Pinterest for more barn card inspiration.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
