Unconventional Christmas Card - I Think!!!!
When I think of Christmas I normally do not think of farm tractors but, yes there is always a but!!!!! My brother in law is a farmer and works so very hard to make certain that there is food on the tables of so many people just like so many other farmers in this country!!! I some times think we take these men and women for granted and when I saw this image it just screamed out to me that I had to make a card for my in-laws and use it. The image is from Stamping Dragon Designz and you can get them at the Digital-Ink Co.. All of there stamps for the month of December are half off. What a deal!!!!!!! Anyway getting back to the design of the card. Living in Wisconsin and knowing what kind of machinery my BIL uses I had to make this tractor a John Deere. The John Deere plant is about 1 hour from my house and you can not go past a farm around here with out seeing one in use. I wanted to make the card look like the tractor was sitting out in the field with a bit of snow on it so the stickles came out and also some glaze to shine up some parts. I think they will be jazzed by the end result!!!!
