Greetings Friends! Or should I say, Howdy? Here is another A2 size card using my "Howdy" die from Die-Versions. This time I lined it up on the folded edge of the card and punched through both layers of the card. (both front and back, see inside picture below) Here is how I made this card.
I placed the top edge of the letters of the die right off the edge of the fold, before running the die and card through the Cuttlebug machine. I then cut 1 1/4" off the front flap of the turquoise card. I then cut a piece of floral scrap book paper 3 5/8"X 5 1/2" to cover the back of the card. I also stamped "Becky" the cowgirl, one of Julie Nutting's new Doll Stamps from Prima on Neenah white card stock. I then colored her with my Copic markers and fussy cut around her. The wood block and sentiment stamps are from My Favorite Things "Howdy" clear stamp set. I stamped the phrase first on a manila tag, masked it with a post-it note, and the over stamped the wood block stamp in Sepia brown Archival ink from Ranger. I trimmed around the stamping, and placed foam tape on the back to pop it up. I also used foam tape to attach Becky to the front of the card. You can't see it well, but I used several star stamps from the MFT Howdy set to stamp a background on the card flap, before attaching the doll and the sentiment block.
To complete this card, I stamped the sentiment "Yee Haw" on the printed paper inside, and used Dark Bark chalk ink to add a distressed edge to the letters "H*O*W*D*Y" on the outside of the card. Thanks for visiting my blog, and be sure to leave me a comment below. See you all again soon.
