Goat Birthday Card

When I was growing up, we had goats. (Picture Below) They were such great pets with great personality. Anvil thought he was a lap dog. Mom would go out and sit on the back steps, Anvil would climb up in her lap to be petted.. Autumn was my baby. She and I would play in the backyard together. (She especially loved when I would wear bug spray and would try to lick it off my leg…that was strange. haha) I was an only child so I thought it was fun to call them my kid brother and kid sister. 😉

The Way to Goat stamp set was a must have for our collection as soon as we saw it. Today’s card is one Mom came up with in honor of our “kid” babies.

Autumn and Anvil – Our Sweet Pet Goats

Here’s the Cardstock you will need:

Basic Gray:
8.5″ x 5.5″, score at 4.25″

Old Olive Cardstock:
4″ x 5.25″

In Good Taste Designer Series Paper:
3.75″ x 5″

Whisper White:
3.75″ x 5″
2 Diecuts using Tasteful Labels Dies

Now let’s get started. Stamp your goats onto your labels using Memento Black Ink. Using watercolor pens/brushes color your goats using Basic Gray and Early Espresso. To make the “bite” in the labels we used the Snow Globe Scenes Dies. (If you don’t have the dies, you could even just tear the corners off.) To make the rough/chewed up edge on the bottom of the DSP we used the Ornate Borders Dies.

Stamp your words and tin can onto the DSP. Adhere your DSP and Old Olive Layers to the card base. Pop up the Goats using Dimensionals.

For extra fun, Mom decorated the inside of the card too!

The piece of cake is simply a piece of clipart printed from the internet because shockingly, we don’t have a birthday cake stamp in our collection (don’t worry…we’ll remedy that soon I’m sure.)

We hope you enjoyed this card as much as we did! Look below for a list of supplies we used.

And don’t forget…July Bonus Days are back! For every $50 you spend in the Stampin’ Up! store during the month of July, they will send you a $5 coupon to use in August!

Happy Stampin’

P.S. We never saw them eat tin cans…they did love hot sauce though! Goofy kids.
