Yeah, I finally got a few minutes to get this card downloaded. I have had it done for several days, but with school/work starting back there has been no time. This challenge from the Moxie Fab World blog is to make a Christmas card using stamping. I was looking through my stamps and saw this adorable cow. I immediately thought of the Christmas carol and thought it would make a cute "pun" on a Christmas card. To start I made a white A2 card, top-folded. I then used 2 shades of ink to make the sky background using sponges. Next, I stamped my cows using Versamark onto glossy white sticker paper and embossed with black EP. Then I colored my cows with markers, adding shadows as well. Then I cut them out. The next step was to find a cloud that I liked. I finally found one in an old SU set, but it was kind of small. I first made a mask of the cloud and then stamped 3 clouds together using the mask to overlap. I then colored them making shadows and cut them out, too. I attached the two cows/clouds in the back flat to the card. The front cow/cloud was mounted with SU dimensionals. Then then added halos with a gold pen and stamped the "moos" with black ink. I used Microsoft Open Office to make the greeting and cut it out and matted on black. I mounted it at the top of the card. The very last step was to add glitter to the wings. This was a fun card to make and I do believe I will have to make some more. Thanks for stopping by.
