Artistically Inked, Cutest Cows, Friendship Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a card to share with you using the "Cutest Cows" bundle. Please read on to see how I made it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 2" x 5-1/2" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Subtles" 6" x 6" package. I taped that to the left side of the card along the fold.

The words are from the "Artistically Inked" set and were stamped using Pool Party ink about 1/4" from the bottom of the card and 3/8" from the right edge.

Using the "Deckled Circles" dies I used the 8th and 9th largest circles, a Basic White one and a Pool Party one.

On the Basic White circle I stamped the flowers. I used StazOn (because it was still on my worktable) and I colored them in using markers. I used Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Granny Apple Green. Then I taped it to the Pool Party circle. Dimensionals were added to the back and I set it in place on the front of the card about 1/2" from the top and 1/2" from the fold.

The cow was made next. I stamped the body and head on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock.  I colored the mouth and ears using the Petal Pink marker and the bangs (do cows have bangs?), spots, tail and hooves were colored in using the Basic Black marker. The body was taped down and the head was added last. I was going to use Dimensionals but I remembered I had some adhesive springs that I had gotten a while back at Hobby Lobby and I thought I'd make a wobbly headed cow.  It's so cute.  You can make your own, I found a link on YouTube, click here to see it. I have made these before too. I have had great success in making them but I like to use the manufactured one because they are quicker. And that's all there was to this card.

Fun and cute.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's friendship card,
