It's tractor time!

Yesterday's SCS Challenge was to use little stamps. When I read the write up I knew EXACTLY what stamp I would be using. Tractor by A muse was perfect for the job!
I just love this little stamp! It is so darn cute. My 4.5 year old son LOVES John Deere tractors so I just had to make it a green, yellow and black tractor.

This is what the finished card looks like...



And if you feel like making it into a slider card then this is what you will get:



However, if you feel like having snap card then this is what you will get:




And when you open it this is what it will look like:



A close up will reveal this:



You'll notice there is a little white circle with a + sign on it. The little white circle with the - sign on it is hidden under the cuttlebugged panel at the top. I took this picture to show you the button because the finished product looks like this:



And if you have NO idea what the magnets are that I am talking about this is what they look like:

This is such a great card Alli! Love the John Deere, my FIL is a farmer so we get a lot of exposure to tractors. Think I need to pick up that stamp!

What a great card Alli! I love those snap closures! I used them for several projects already! I am working on a tractor card as well. I just have to add the sentiment. I am trying to come up with a cute one.

Very cute card. I love the idea, but will have to do it in red! That is the color of choice on our farm. Thanks for the wonderful directions!
