DT Monday for SVG Attic

Hi all.

I have taken the "Down on the Farm" set from SVG Attic and turned it into a cute birthday card. My 6 year old son liked it so much he asked if I would save it for his birthday and if he could now have a farm themed birthday part. We'll see but in the meantime let me share what I made and how I made it.

I took the barn from the set and down sized it to 6 inches and then I copied and pasted the identical barn right next to the first one. I then overlapped the two barns just slightly. I lost the one overhang on the barn roof but that's okay because the brown frame hangs over some when you glue it on so you don't notice.

I brought all the other parts into Sure Cuts A Lot and made sure they fit over the bard. I set all the other parts of the front of the barn at 6.00 inches for width.
 I glued everything onto the red barn before gluing it onto the white cardstock because I had some cutting to do. I put the criss/cross pattern on the barn doors but then I had to use my x-acto knife to cut around the edges so the doors opened. I left a slight gap when gluing the criss/cross pattern on because I knew I would need to slice between the doors.
I found a great way to give ordinary paper some texture. I put on thin lines of Sctoch's quick drying glue and then rubbed it as it started to dry.
 I cut my chicken at 1.250 inches so she's fit in the loft window.

I cut my cow at 2.130 inches in width. The word bubble is from the Sure Cuts A Lot program and it's shape library.
 My cow was so small that I had to draw the inside of his ears and spots on.

Hope you enjoyed my farm themed birthday card as much as I enjoyed making it and I look forward to seeing you soon.

  1. Great card, such amazing detail. TFS.

  2. I am DESPERATELY seeking a barn card and came across this post. Unfortunately the Down on the Farm site is no longer active. Is there any way that I can get the barn card template that you created? I'm very new to creating cards using my Gazelle and honestly don't know how to edit svgs but I'm under a time restraint as someone has asked me to make a wedding card of a barn (getting married in a barn). I'm at a loss!! I'm happy to give you my email address or if you can point me in the right direction, that will work as well. Thank you!!

    1. I have no idea how to get back to you so I'm hoping you'll see this. Here is the link to this set and it's on sale right now too!

  3. I am desperate to find a barn card and came across your blog. Unfortunately the original Down on the Farm SVG is no longer available and I'm unable to locate another barn card. Is there a way that I could obtain the SVG of the card that you created? I'm fairly new to card making, especially with my Gazelle and honestly am not sure how to edit/manipulate the SVGs. I'm under a time crunch as my sister volunteered me to make a wedding card for her boss to give to someone (the person is getting married in a barn), so I'm under pressure and getting a bit frustrated. ha I'm happy to give you my email address if you could provide the file to me or if you can direct me to where I can purchase the SVG. Thank you so much!
