Udderly Exhausted

Love how this card turned out and hoping my cousin that had heart surgery last week will too. He had to have several stents put in his valves to his heart. He must be doing pretty good cause he has been seen out and about since the surgery.

Supplies needed:
Whisper White, Basic Black and Pretty in Pink Card stock
Stazon Black Ink Pad
Craft White Ink Pad
3 white eyelets
White and black gel pens
Gamsol and Colored Pencils
Stamp sets used was Harlequin Background stamp (retired) and Farm Fever.

Cut card stock at 4 1/4 x 11, fold in half to make your card. This card also opens from the top.
Cut Pretty in Pink at 3 1/8 x 3 3/4 layer on card as shown in sample
Cut Basic black at 2 3/4 x 3 1/3, stamp with White Craft Ink Pad with the Harlequin stamp. Take white gel pen and put dashed lines around the diamonds. Punch 3 evenly spaced holes for eyelets with the crop-a-dile. Add eyelets. Layer this on the Pretty in Pink.
Add black dots on the Whisper White card stock (main card) with black gel pen.
On Whisper White stamp cow image on and color in with choice of coloring. I did the gamsol and colored pencils for this one too. Cut out with an oval from the coluzzle. Next do the same with the black card stock only one size larger for the oval.
With white gel pen make squiggles and dots around the edge of the black.
Mount to card.
