Each month the top sales performers in the Playtime with Paper group receive a small gift for their accomplishment. Naturally, the gift must include a card or tag. Using the Over the Moon Cling Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog, I was able to make an “Udderly Fantastic” note card . As you can tell from the “udderly fantastic”, there must be a cow somewhere on the card! If you noticed from my past posts, I enjoy using the note cards. The note cards are perfect to have on hand when you want to prepare a quick card. Best of all, twenty note cards come in a set, are reasonably priced and envelopes are included.
Here are the steps for creating the card:
- The stamp for creating the cow spots background comes from the Love What You Do Stamp Set. Randomly stamp spots onto the Whisper White Note Card using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
- Stamp the sentiment and the cow onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Cut using the large circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.
- Color the cow using the following Stampin’ Blends: Light Black for the spots, hoof, and tail; Light Smoky Slate for the tail, hair tuft and shading shadows; Light Petal Pink for the face, udder and inside ears and Light Mossy Meadow for the grass.
- Use the large scallop from the Layering Circles die to cut a layering piece from Basic Black cardstock. Attach the cow piece to the scallop using adhesive.
- Tie a piece of Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the card.
- Complete the card by adding the cow tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Order the Over the Moon Stamp Set along with some note cards and have an udderly fun time creating a variety of cards!
