COW are you?

For today's card, I decided to go back to basics. By using some basic colored cardstock (all from Michael's Recollection brand), and a couple of embossing folders, I came up with this easy and super adorable shaped card. 

I used Make-the-Cut to import the cow and tree from Lettering Delights' Sweet Nothings Gift Card Holders SVG set. The card base and the 2 layers under the main images were easily made with the Shadow Layer tool in Make-the-Cut.

The "COW are you?" stamp is from Joylife's Lots of Puns stamp set. 

Martha Stewart's grass border punch added a cute accent to the card while a touch of Stickles on the grass tips and tree trunk added bling.


  1. Jin, this is a cute. I like the sentiment.

  2. I love this card! The shape is wonderful and the cow is so cute!!

  3. Love It Jin. So cute and simple, just my kind of card. I bought this sentiment set from Joy's because of your creative use of it.

    Thanks for all the inspiration!!

  4. Oh Jin, you always create the cutest projects, and your card is simply adorable..


  5. Luv the card Jin!
    Quick question...looking at the pic of it sitting on the virtual mat, it measures 6 x you make your own envelopes for your shape cards, or are you buying them to send out?

    TFS...Kathy :)

  6. Hey Kathy, I don't usually make my own envelopes because I try to size the cards so that they can fit into those store-bought envelopes. However, when the card is odd-sized like this card, I do end up making the envelope myself. I have not made one for this card yet though. :)

  7. SO cute Jin! I love the simplicity. I really need to grab Joy's stamps!

  8. Jin, i wish you can post a video tutorial on how you size everything to make the shape cards.. my attempt at the cupcake card was not quite successful :o(
    i am going to get the hang of this eventually..i am (i suppose if i convince myself of that i may actually accomplish it?LOL)

  9. That is so cute! The swirl folder is so perfect for that tree.
