Inside of the card [hard to see that the cow is standing out~he does look cool in person]:
First I cut most of the pieces that I needed to decorate my card. Main card [outside] cut out of card stock at 3-1/2" x 8". On the 8" side score at 4" [or fold the card in half]. Inside of the card, cut a piece of coordinating card stock at 3-1/4" x 7-3/4" and fold in half on the 7 3/4" side.
Front pieces of the card I cut 1 piece of card stock 1-1/4" x 3-1/2" and another piece at 1" x 3-1/2". Inside pieces of the card I printed out my sayings on the computer and then cut around the words. I stamped with our clear rubber stamps the cow using our child safe/washable ink pad in black. I made a birthday hat to place on his head.
Take the inside piece of card stock [3-1/4" x 7-3/4"] and after you fold it in half, make 2 slits in the middle of the card spacing them about 1/2" to 3/4" apart. See below example. Fold the tab forward and then back.
Push the tab through to the other side so it makes a little stair step. Since I had double sided card stock I could have used either side depending on what design I wanted to show.
Now it is time to decorate your card and have fun. Make sure you include the children on all your kids crafting projects. Have a wonderful day!
