Funny Card about Getting Older
I’m loving the Way to Goat stamp set for making funny “getting older” birthday cards. If you like sending funny or cheeky cards, you need to check out this stamp set.
I got this card in a demonstrator card swap and I love how the card designer (sorry I’ve lost the post it note saying who make it) sponged the background. The “sky” is sponged with Coastal Cabana ink that matches the card stock mat. And the “ground” is sponged with Granny Apple Green ink that matches the card stock colour in the background of the card. I love these bright fun colours together. Sponging the ink on with Sponge Daubers gives a more intense look that using sponges. You can see the full list of supplies on this card at the end of this post.
The Granny Apple Green card stock in the back ground was given a very subtle texture with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing folder.
The goat was coloured with Blends markers (see more about Blends here). I love the little bit of pink on the goats belly and cheek. Compare the colouring on this goat to my post earlier this week. The goat was then carefully cut out with paper snips scissors so that it could be popped up with dimensionals.
The final touch on this card is the added bling from the Rhinestone Basic Jewels. If you are wondering where the perfectly matched rhinestones have come from, they are coloured with the Blends markers. Use the bullet tip of the Blends marker and colour over the Rhinestone until you get the desired colour you want. On this card, using the darker Bermuda Bay colour adds the perfect shade to match the Coastal Cabana on the card.
You can turn Rhinestone Jewels into any colour using Stampin Up! Blends markers.
