Team StampIt Fathers Day Blog


Fathers Day Banner






Barn Door and This Little Piggy

The Barn Door stamp and dies go so well with the This Little Piggy stamp set.  Rural WV is farmland, and I didn't even try to resist the farm related stamp sets so these two were at the top of my list from the moment I saw them.  

Today's post is all about Father's Day.  I was born and raised on the farm as was my father.  On my father's farm, there is a barn, which very much reminds me of the Barn Door stamp and die set.  





Immediately, I knew The Barn Door set was for me.  As an active farmer, my father enjoys cards depicting the farm life and outdoors, so the realistic Barn Door set is an obvious choice for me to use in celebrating my father who raised and fed me for so many years using the products of the land.  God Bless the farmers.

When designing this card with The Barn Door, I just had to bring in This Little Piggy.  The image and sentiments were so perfect for what I wanted to convey to my father.

  21. Was wondering about your card measurements Is your base 8 1/2" X 5 1/2"? I wanted to CASE your card.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes, the base is 8 1/2 X 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4. The next layer is 5 3/8 X 4 1/8 leaving just a tiny border around. This is necessary so the die for the barn door will fit on this layer. The white stamped layer is 2 1/4" by 4". Please let me know if you have further questions.
