Once the sheep was made I simply mat and layered it onto corresponding matching paper.
The backing paper on this handmade card has also been inked. I have then used a needle and black cotton to make a few stitches on each corner of the card. Using cotton gives the card a tactile look and feel.
To create the wording you can use rub on letters. You may decide that happy birthday is more appropriate however by simply putting baa! You are making this card suitable as a happy birthday card, thank you card or any occasion you think suitable. Of course the wording you use is entirely your own choice and obviously should be fitting the event it is intended for.
The edge of the card has been embellished using decorative scissors to make it look a bit fancier and give the card some more detail.
To finish off your handmade card a small piece of ribbon with a knot and brad through the middle of it, has been placed in the corner of the card. This very simple embellishment gives the card even further detail.
A very simple and easy to make handmade card idea that is a lot of fun, and suitable for happy birthday cards and many other occasions.
