A Sheep’s Birthday

August 19, 2021

Yesterday on my Facebook Live, I shared some cards I made using the Counting Sheep stamp set and Sheep Dies which you can early for Free during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order. Today I am sharing another card i made using this stamp set and dies. To create the centre step for this card you need to cut a standard card base. You need to cut in 1-1/4″ on each side of one half of the card base and then glue these panels down.

I cut my card base from Thick Basic White card and added some Pattern Party Designer Series Paper to the glued down side panels. I scored the centre part of the card at 5cm to give me the centre step. I embossed Balmy Blue card using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and attached the panel to the 5cm section of the central panel. I cut Basic White card using one of the rectangles from the Scalloped Rectangle Dies and attached it to the embossed card. I stamped the sheep and birthday hat images from the Counting Sheep stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I used the Light Smoky Slate and Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends to colour the sheep image and Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend to colour the hat image. The images are cut out using the co-ordinating Sheep Dies. I also cut Balmy Blue and Basic Black card using the balloon die from the Sheep Dies. I attached the sheep and birthday hat to the card front using dimensionals. I layered the balloons so that it looks like the sheep is holding onto the balloons. I stamped the greeting from the Counting Sheep stamp set onto Balmy Blue card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The greeting is cut out using one of the Scalloped Contour Dies before being attached to the card base using dimensionals. This is a fun fancy fold card to make and it works really well with the sheep image don’t you think? Best of all it folds flat and fits a standard envelope.

Bye for now,
