Herd it’s your birthday

Hello Newton’s Nook fans! I’ve had so much fun and am so excited to have had the opportunity to guest design this month with all these insanely talented artists. For my last card guesting I used the beyond adorable “moo” stamp set. My plan was to use one of the cows for this card but couldn’t decide which one was cuter so in the end 3 of them made there way on to it and I’m so glad they did. I love how this card turned out.

Here’s how I created this card.

Start with a white slimline card base.

On top layer a white scallop slimline die cut slightly smaller.

Next make a slightly smaller slimline frame and ink up with oxide ink in the colour tattered rose.

Ink up a piece of white card stock with a cobblestone stencil using oxide inks in the colours antique linen, gathered twigs and brushed corduroy. Die cut a cloud border die strip (enough to cover the bottom of your slimline) and some additional clouds from your inked panel.

Position and glue the cows heads, clouds and larger cloud to the back of the frame. Glue some grass strips behind the bottom of the large cloud at bottom.

Add foam tape to the frame and attach to top of card.

Add a cow to the bottom and a sentiment stamped on a white cloud with dimensional tape.

Finish the card with a few nuvo drops.

Crafty hugs,

Allie
