My good friend just had a birthday and I like to tease her since she is older than me. Stampin' Up!'s Way to Goat stamp set is the perfect choice for funny cards for friends - especially old friends!
I enjoyed colouring the goat to pair with the Ornate Garden designer series paper. The patterns remind me of spring and goats! I can imagine goats eating the pretty flowers in this paper. I purposefully chose the daisy paper and coloured the flower to match the paper. The more the elements in a card coordinate with each other, the more professional your card will look. Using Stampin' Up's designer series paper makes choosing colours easy as you simply need to pick a couple colours from the paper for a great colour combination.
Colouring the goat was fun. I used Cinnamon Cider and Crumb cake to add hints of colour along the lines provided in the image. Colouring images like this is easier than it looks as you don't need to colour the entire goat in. When learning to colour, remember to have fun with it and play and try out different combinations. To create this card, I stamped three goats. One I coloured with greys that you can see in this card here. One I wasn't too happy with and the other you see above. Feel free to stamp ten goats if that is what you need to feel confident with your colouring!
Fussy cutting the goat with scissors was not too fun but isn't too bad either. If you look close enough, you will notice it is not perfect - and that's ok! My motto when card making is to have fun and it is not to be a source of stress.

I've created a tutorial with supplies, measurements and instructions to help you creat this card yourself. Download the tutorial HERE.
If you are in Canada and would like to order supplies to create it, I would love to help. Contact me or order online. The list of supplies is found in the tutorial as well as HERE. I have omitted some of the supplies you may already own such as a paper cutter, scissors and adhesive. I did include the Stampin' Up! Cut & Emboss machine to cut out the label shape for the sentiment. You could simplify the card and use a rectangle in place of the tasteful label dies.
