Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog has been live two weeks! There are so many fun stamp sets it’s hard to know where to start. If you love animals or cows, Over the Moon is a fun one. And, look, you can color the cows any color you want. Who’s judging?
This is a “fun fold” card, though I’m not exactly sure what the name of the fold is. I do know it doesn’t look like my typical cards! But here’s how you create it. Cut an 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheet of card stock down the middle vertically. Your piece then measures 4 1/2 x 11. Score it at 5 1/2 inches. Then, trim a piece 2 3/4 inches from one end. That piece becomes the “swing” piece. It should measure 4 1/4 x 2 3/4 inches.
Stamp the cow image and the sentiment with Stazon Ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock cut at 4 x 2 1/2 inches. I colored the cow with a variety of Stampin’ Writer Markers, including: Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral, Pacific Point, and Coastal Cabana. These are the coordinating colors in the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper. I used that paper for the accents on the Crushed Curry base. One piece is cut at 2 1/2 x 4 inches (adhere to front flap) and another is 1 x 4 inches (adhere to Whisper White insert that’s cut at 5 1/4 x 4 inches and taped to the Crushed Curry base).
Adhere the stamped image to the Crushed Curry piece. Using Dimensionals, pop it up on the small, “swinging” panel.
It’s always a bit difficult to write the directions instead of showing. If I get requests, I could show how this card is made on a Facebook Live.
Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if you have questions!
