Growing In Unity Post #2 - Holy Cow!

Here I am again with another super easy but I think super cute card!  Do you have any cow friends?  Well I do!   One of my very best friends, Suzi, collects cows!  She even has cow art work in her living room.  I know she will love this card for her birthday!

The Unity Stamp Co. stamp set I used is "Holy Cow" by Lisa Arana.  It has three sentiments and I managed to use two of them!


Thankfully with the help of my Misti, I was able to do some repetative stamping in the background without messing it up too bad!   I used a Kraft Cardbase and my repetative stamped layer is Kraft as well.  I stamped the "Herd it was your Birthday" sentiment diagonally with Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake Ink for a tone-on-tone look.  I added a slightly larger and skewed layer of Basic Black Cardstock behind it for some contrast.  The Cow image was heat embossed in Black on Whisper White Cardstock as was the sentiment below the cow.  I used a set of Stampin' Up! dies called Lots of Labels Framelits to cut out my tag.  The dies cut a fancy scallop on the top and bottom but I used my Paper Trimmer to cut the bottom scallop off and then punched a small hole in the top of the tag. After running some black and white gingham ribbon through the hole,  I used foam tape to adhere to the front of the card.  Some natural twine was used to tie a bow around the ribbon.  Although this was an easy card, it certainly turned out cute and I know Suzi will love it!

Blessings, Tina
