Hello Farmers!!

I had a MB member ask me about making a TRACTOR CARD. I resized it to fit into a standard invitation envelope *keeping fingers crossed*. It might just be a nice card for any farmers of lovers of tractors! I didn't put a lot of detail into the body of the tractor that way there is room for a greeting. The red circles show where there is a cut out. The base of the card will show through the red circles so make sure you have a base color you like for the hubs of the tires, or you can just cut some circles of any color you want and put in there, let your creative juices flow!! There are 4 mats 1. card base, 2. tractor body, 3. steering wheel and tires and 4. exhaust pipe.

Here are the layers you will want to do in order, starting with bottom first.
Exhaust pipe
Steering wheel
Tractor body

If anyone makes me be sure to send me a pic to post on my blog!! THANKS!!

UPDATE: Thanks to LeahPagliaroli for sharing the pic of the card she made with the cut file! It looks great Leah and I so appreciate you sharing the picture!!


  1. dont know me, but i found your blog through a forum called Cafemom...anyway, i really like this card and it would be perfect for my uncle's 5oth bday (he's a farmer)...i am fairly new to the cricut and only have the trial version of the design studio (which i've never used)...could you let me know how to do this...or even if i can since i know you can only use the George cart with the trial version..thanks so much...jenn

  2. hey Jennifer! I emailed you with the information about the card. It is indeed with George and can be cut with the trial version of DS when using the baby bug!! Hope it works for you!!

  3. This is amazing, my son just went to a tractor pull tonight and the men let him ride in a tractor and he is just so thrilled and this will make the perfect thank you card!!! Thanks for sharing your amazing talent!!
