Farmyard Birthday Invitation – Setting the Scene

Setting the scene for a special birthday celebration always begins with a special invitation. And what better way to create an invitation than using the fabulous Silhouette machine.

I used the beautiful barn image cut on my silhouette and then turned it into an invitation simply by adding some wording inside.

  • Step 1

    Insert the image into the silhouette software. Drag the image to the size you want it to be.

  • Step 2

    Cut the barn image out of AC smooth cardstock. I cut the same image three times in three different colours.

  • Step 3

    Print the wording onto white typing paper first to determine the correct size. Then print the wording onto patterned paper from the Kaisercraft Old Mac paper range.

  • Step 4

    Use the door frame from the cut outs to cut the wording to the correct shape and size.

  • Step 5

    Assemble the invitation with the wording inside. To finish off the outside stamp some grain images using Brilliance Dewdrop Galaxy Gold.

Add some decorative brads to mimic door handles. And then wrap the invitation with grass platted twine and add a name tag for the recipient of the invitation.


A farmyard birthday will not be anything special without using some added elements from your crafting stash. A few added details do wonders for the theme!


I found these little seedling cups in a store and the colouring worked perfectly to support the theme. A few little identifying tags on toothpicks help identify what’s inside each cup.

Stamp the farm fresh image onto patterned paper and cut it out around the edges. Then add it to the food cups as a decorative element.


I wrapped a recycled dog food tin in twine, creating a beautiful container for straws and cutlery. A few decorative elements cut from the Old Mac paper range adhered to the front of the tin with foam tape makes for a striking centrepiece.


And these are just a few elements and ideas of how you can use your crafting goodies to create a beautiful farmyard birthday invitation and themed celebration for a special boy.
