Today’s “udderly fantastic” card is a CASE of a baby card that I created previously using the Animal Outing Stamp Set. You can view the previous post, along with detailed instructions and a product list here.
STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:
Start with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Whisper White Thick card stock.
Adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Basic Gray Neutrals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
The 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper shown above is available in ALL the colors from each Stampin’ Up! color family! A perfect product to have on hand for instant color coordination to any creation.
Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to 3 1/2 x 4 3/4. Round corners using the Detailed Trio Punch. Center and crop this layer using a die-cutting machine and the third largest oval die from Stampin’ Up! Layering Ovals Dies.
To create the stitched oval frame, use the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies to crop Whisper White card stock using a die-cutting machine. Center the third largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies on the Whisper White stitched oval die-cut and crop with a die-cutting machine. Adhere as shown using a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Use the Stamparatus to position and stamp the cow from Over the Moon stamp set with Basic Gray Classic Ink onto the center of a 3 x 4 1/4 piece of Whisper White card stock. Use the following Stampin’ Blends to add bits of color to the cow: Dark Smoky Slate, Light & Dark Pineapple Punch, and Light Old Olive. Adhere below the oval frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Use the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment in Basic Gray Classic Ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. Crop with a die-cutting machine and the small-skinny Stitched Oval Die. Use the Detailed Trio Punch to add ribbon holes.
Thread a piece of Pineapple Punch 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon through both holes and around the piece of card stock, securing with a bow on the left. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
POP OF PERSONALITY! Add three multi-sized Pineapple Punch Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots as shown.
Use a die-cutting machine and Beautiful Layers envelope liner die to crop the scrap piece (from the 2nd step) of Basic Gray Neutrals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper! Cut to 1 3/4 high and adhere with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Here’s a quick video demonstration with more tips on using the Beautiful Layers Dies.
