I hope you will enjoy the video tutorial of how I made this adorable cow themed card for an upcoming swap on Face Book.
For this card you will need:
My favorite things pink card stock cut to A2 size (5 1/2 X 4 1/4") folded. You will also need patterned papers of your choosing.
The black and white panel measures 4" X 5 1/4". The other two layers, hounds tooth and brown and white polka dots are cut from the nesting stitched rectangle dies sold by My favorite things stamps. The bolsters are from Judy Morrow.
The cow is stamped onto copic quality express-it card stock using memento tuxedo black ink and colored with copic markers. This image is small and did not require much blending. Take your time. The devil is in the details with this card.
The focal image is by Penny Black and it is entitled "Swooning cow". I think he is just adorable. He is attached toward the center of the card front using an action wobble. Since the brown polka dot panel is textured, I attached the wobble using some glossy accents.
The sentiment is stamped onto a small stitched rectangle piece of express-it card stock using memento tuxedo black ink and colored with R24 copic marker,then attached to the inside of the card. Please take the time to finish your card by making some adorable packaging. It is like icing on a cake.
This project was fun to make and I hope you will give a card such as this a try! If you do, please share your creations with me. Don't forget to share this post and video on your social media sites.
Stamp Happy and as always, be a blessing!
