Happy Father's Day - Punch Art Tractor w/Tutorial

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all of the wonderful father's out there!

Today I am sharing one of the Father's Day cards I made.  This tractor punch art was inspired by one done by a fellow demonstrator named Shelly Godby.   Hers was green, so I had to change it to red for International Harvester.   Also, hers was larger to fit a calendar page, so I just shrunk everything down and ended up with this:

I tried to show everything so that you wouldn't have to figure it out for yourself, but the writing under the pictures doesn't appear to be clear enough to read. 

The tractor base is 1.5" x 2" - snip one corner and round the other.
Big Wheel is made with the Circle Scallop Punch (punch twice - rotating after first punch), 1" Circle Punch and 1/2" Circle Punch.
Small Wheel is made with 1" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch and the Crop-O-Dile (but could use a standard office punch).
Steering Wheel uses two punches from the retired Slot Punch.  The third one is for the pipe.
Seat uses two 1/4" x 3/4" pieces - round one end of each piece (I used the Word Window Punch).  The other end of each piece is hidden so doesn't need punched.

Hope that makes sense.  If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment and I will reply to it.

The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen.

If you make your own tractor, add a link to it so my readers and I can check it out.

Happy Stampin' and Happy Father's Day!

Sue, this is adorable! I like that you chose to do a "regular" tractor, rather than the green one. My dad has a tractor (still) and it's red. I remember riding on it down our street when I was very small.
your punch art is so clever!
