From the Whole Herd

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Joanne Grzelak our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenge.

Tomorrow is National Cow Appreciation Day.  Let’s create a card with a cow or two on it.  If you happen not to have cow images, then use another ‘farm’ animal.  Please add a fun sentiment OR make it as a get well card.

I decided to play with a couple of cow stamps that I have had in my stash for years. I created an Accordion Card using the Fancy Label Accordion Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Here is my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope.

Love these flipping cards you do, Frances, and this one is hilarious to get to view the back side of the cow on ome of the flips. Love the black and white.

How fun is this! The white frame with circle cut-outs was the perfect pattern for your cute cow.
