Oh what fun …I loved making this card… it’s..um.. different. Who would have thought I would like this stamp set so much. (Yuletide Pasture).. but once I started, well, it struck my fancy 🙂 I’ll be honest, I don’t know what this beast is called – maybe an ox? But it has this undisturbed look, with ornaments from its horns. I mean, what NOT to like! So here we go…

The card base is Crumb Cake and it’s a slimline card, so l-o-n-g. And this hairy ox is stamped in Soft Suede, just lying there, with ornaments on its horn on a Whisper White piece. I then took the fine tip water painter and brushed it across the ‘hair’ of the animal to give it some color, but not too much. I did the same to the antlers. Then I colored the ornaments with various shades of blue Blends and added a stripe of Just Jade on each one. The Blends used.. Night of Navy, Seaside Spray and Misty Moonlight. The beast looked incomplete so I added a bow using Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, specifically the Misty Moonlight/ Silver Bakers Twine. I completed the bells by adding the sparkle of Wink of Stella.I put dimensionals on the back and set it aside.

For the layering on the card front… Pacific Point and the lovely Snowflake Splendor DSP. The banners are again Pacific Point and Crumb Cake with the sentiment stamped in Soft Suede. I used the Banner Pick A Punch for the ends. 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots completed the look for the banner. Once these were placed where I wanted them, I added the ox panel with dimesnionals.

Yuletide Pasture #1

The inside is another adorable beast stamped in Soft Suede on the Whisper White panel , then the fine- tip water painter was used to add color and depth. The neckband/ bells uses Blends in… Poppy Parade, Call Me Clover and Mango Melody. I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede as well.The Whisper White panel was adhered to Pacific Point with liquid glue and that in turn added to the Crumb Cake Card base, again with liquid glue. Voila – fait accompli’. I love this simple card and hope you do as well.
