Happy Friday friends! Today I’ll be sharing some inspiration featuring the adorable Mama Elephant Zodiac Sheepset! These playful sheep have turned acrobatic today for a fun, whimsical card to send on any day of the week. We all could use a little cheerful mail with all this social distancing, don’t you agree?
I stamped all the sheep from Zodiac Sheep in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them up with copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to die cut all the images out and even some of the hands so that there are little slots to tuck in small images as if they are holding the item.
I wanted to create a fun background to go along these stacking sheep so I decided to use the Hillside Cover Creative Cuts, mask off the edges, and blend each of the hills with distress oxide inks. I gave the background a touch of splatter for texture, and stamped the sentiment ‘oh happy day’ on the 3rd hill. This sentiment is from the Fly With Me stamp set.
I like to adhere the small images to the sheep with some adhesive first to get the correct positioning of them, and then add the foam tape behind the images after. From there, I added each of the images to the card, stacking one sheep over the other, and creating a fun little scene here.
Hope you enjoy this simple card and give this layout a try with any of the zodiac sets! Mix and match and have fun. Have a love weekend folks!
