Party Till the Cows Come Home

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this Sunday in June. 

Hope you all had a great week-end and had time to do something fun. Definitely spending time in your craft room is loads of fun! We spent yesterday with the Marsh Family celebrating my Mother-in-Laws 91st birthday. 

It was a good time with family and we had some delicious food. My sister-in-law made us filet mignon and side of baked rigatoni and meatballs. I made a tossed salad which everyone enjoyed as well. We had a birthday cake from a local bakery so known for their delicious cakes. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog.  I am featuring the new Country Farm Cows and created a birthday card for a fun loving friend.. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps: 
I started my card design by cutting the cow images. I used different shades of cardstock. You could also cut in white cardstock and then color the cows with your favorite coloring medium.
Next, I cut 3 grassy slopes from designer paper. On the bottom slope I stamped my sentiment in black ink. I used my MISTI for placement and also because sometimes the clear stamps require a second inking. In this case it did.
I stenciled clouds onto my image panel with tumbled glass distress ink. I cut 3 grassy slopes from designer paper and the sun is from the clouds & sun die.
Now I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the slopes to the image panel with double sided tape and dimensional adhesive.
 Next, I attached the cows to the grassy slopes using dimensional adhesive.
To finish off the card I attached the image panel to a blue card base. The base is 5 3/4" x 4 1/2". I scattered a few enamel dots and the card is complete.
Well, that's it for me for this post so until next time.......God bless
