Ewe and Me - We're Meant to Be! Simple Card Monday


This 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" card was so fun to make!  I had seen this ewe on the Cricut Country Life cartridge and thought she was just too cute!  I knew using some off white glitter paper vy DCWV would help her get her bling on....ok, that was silly, but hopefully, funny...


I thought it would be fun to make this a stand-up card.  The "ewe and me" stamp is by Waltzingmouse Stamps and the "I love you" stamp is from Papertrey Ink. Paper is by October Afternoon and Coredinations.


I cut the ewe at 3",  all layers, and pop dotted her onto the front.  I love the curly-Q cuts on the ewe!  The ribbon and button are from Stampin Up!.


Here's what the inside looks like if you opened the card traditionally.  This card is going to be for my husband, the love of my life...it's good to make a card for the hubby once in awhile!

Be sure and check back tomorrow for more fun! This post may contain affiliate links.

Don't forget we are giving away a Preserves Cricut cartridge this week so be sure to leave a comment and subscribe so you are entered to win!

jengd said...

Great card! I love the colors and "mood" you've set with it.

Ohhh Snap said...

Can't go wrong with plaid and a sheep in my book lol. The spinster in me loves sheepies :D. That's spinster the occupation that freed women from "having" to marry for financial reasons, not the condition of a never-married woman (I'm taking back the word). Though mostly now I spin embroidery thread so fleeces last a reallllllllllllly long time.

Long way of saying, Love the card! TFS :D
