The Way To Goat stamp set is so much fun! For this card, I used Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper cut to 3-7/8 X 5-1/8 for the card front. The card base is Daffodil Delight card stock cut to 5-1/2 X 8-1/2 scored at 4-1/4. I used a scrap of Garden Green card stock for the scalloped, oval mat. I also cut a Daffodil Delight card stock strip 1 inch wide for the mat for the sentiment. I used scraps of Whisper White card stock for the oval and the 3/4 inch wide sentiment strip. The liner for this card is Whisper White card stock cut to 4 X 5-1/4.
I stamped a goat from the Way to Goat stamp set onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. (I wiped off the ink from the flower that is in this goat’s mouth before I stamped it.) I cut the goat out using the Layering Ovals Framelet dies. I then stamped another head of the same goat on another scrap of Whisper White card stock. I “fussy cut” the goat head out. I stamped grass under the goat using Garden Green Ink. I colored the goat and goat head using Light and Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.
I stamped the sentiment onto a 3/4 inch wide strip of Whisper White cards stock using Garden Green Ink and punched it using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I punched a 1 inch wide strip of Daffodil Delight card stock also using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I adhered the sentiment strip to the mat. I cut off the right end of the sentiment strip it to the correct length.
I took a few short pieces of raffia and twisted and glued them together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I used a Glue Dot to glue them to the goats mouth. I adhered the goat head over the goat head on the oval using Dimensionals. I cut a scalloped oval out of Garden Green card stock using the Layering Oval Framelet Dies. I adhered the goat assembly to the Garden Green mat. I adhered the whole assembly to the card front and then to the Daffodil Delight card base. I put dimensionals on the left end of the sentiment strip and glue dots on the right side of the sentiment strip and adhered it to the front of the card. I adhered the liner to the inside of the card. Lastly, I decorated the envelope with another goat from the Way to Goat Stamp set.
Tips and Tricks: When mounting the Whisper White oval to the Garden Green mat, bow the center of the Whisper White oval up, lay it carefully on the mat and maneuver it to the center. Press the oval down so it adheres to the mat.
