My Mom’s Birthday was last week and this was the card that I created for her! It’s adorable, funny, and perfect for her! The first time I saw the Stamp Set – From the Herd which is in the Occasions Mini Catalog I loved it! It is just so funny and cute! I grew up on a farm and while we only had cow, chickens, and sheep I still love it! For this card to my Mom, I only wanted two animals to represent my husband and I (I’ll let you decided who is who 😉 )! Using my Basic Black Marker, I colored the goat and the bird and then stamped it on my piece of Whisper White cardstock. I’m not going to lie, I had to go over a few lines with the marker again because they didn’t come out clean and I wanted a bold line! Then I colored them in using my markers – Bermuda Bay, Basic Gray, and Smoky Slate. Adorable! Then I cut it out with the Deco Label Framelits! I wanted a nice layer so I cut a piece of Basic Gray out with the next Framelit up! For some texture, I ran the gray piece through the Big Shot with my Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder. I added this to my card base which was Wild Wasbi and added some Linen Thread. For the greeting, I stamped Happy Birthday on the front and then using the other greetings I stamped From the Party Animals on the inside! This stamp set also had a party hat, balloon, and noise maker so I decorated the envelope with some balloons on the front and party hats along the tab of the envelope in the back! It was just fabulous! I loved making a special card for someone who is so very special to me! 🙂
