It's Your Baa-thday

Kim is sharing this card on the Paper Smooches Blog today! When I first saw the kicking sheep from Party Posse, I knew I wanted to pair him up with the tiny little sheep from FOLKal Points. Eeek! I just love it when a card makes me giggle while I'm making it. This was one of those cards. First, I cut out the green hills and traced the top of the hill in the very back so I'd know where to stamp the sheep and farmhouse. Then I masked a couple of the smaller sheep in the corner next to the farmhouse (bell tower or clock tower), also from FOLKal Points. After adhering the hills to the card, I stamped one extra small sheep and popped it on with foam tape. The big, woolly sheep was stamped directly on the hill in the foreground, then again on white cardstock, coloured, fussy cut and adhered to the card with foam tape. The sentiment, also from Party Posse, was the last to be stamped.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you on Thursday for the Paper Smooches January Release Blog Hop when Kim and the design team sneak the February stamp sets. I'm excited!!

So cute, Emily - that kicking sheep is adorable, and I love how you combined the sets. Have you ever watched Shaun the Sheep with Damian? You'd both get a kick out of it (oh, lame pun...lol)

Jocelyn Olson said...

Ha ha! This card made me laugh out loud! Is he the renegade sheep? Or is he the good sheep getting away from the bad sheep hanging out back? The hills look great, too.
