Growing in Unity 2019 - Day 3

Hello and Happy Hump Day!  It's Day 3 of my Growing in Unity Week!  I made a simple birthday card today because I'm always needing birthday cards!!  The Unity Stamp Sets used on today's card are Holy Cow and  Barn Wall stamp sets.


This is such a simple card and I think the Barn Wall Background stamp gives it a fun masculine feel. The Barn Wall was stamped onto Soft Suede Cardstock using Soft Suede Ink for a fun tone-on-tone look.  It was layered onto 80# Neenah Classic Solar White Cardstock.  I ran a piece of ribbon around the two layers and adhered it to the back before mounting the layers onto a Basic Black Cardstock A2 Card Base.   Both the Cow and sentiment image were stamped in Versafine Black Onyx Ink onto 110# Neenah Classic Solar White Cardstock and then cut out with Square Framelits.  I matted the square with a scallop in Black Cardstock.  I added Dimensionals onto the top and bottom of the square avoiding the section where the ribbon would be.  I tied a piece of Linen Thread into a knot around the ribbon on the left side of the cow panel.  I ran the Linen Thread through a brown button and tied it into a simple bow on the front of the button.  Two mini glue dots were adhered to the back of the button to keep it in place.  

Here's the inside of the card using another of the sentiments from the stamp set.....


 I'm always in need of masculine birthday cards so I thought this one was perfect!
