Ever since Karen Burniston came out with the fun Surprise Ball pop up there have been so many fun animal cards. I have a friend who asked if I could make her a Long Horned Cow so I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to try my hand at a double surprise pop up animal. I thought he was lonely so I made him some friends 🐑🐓🐐🐖🐎
There is soooo much in this card that I hope that I don’t miss anything. I will post the diesets below as I go, and the cardstock is from Stampin Up and is listed below.
I left the 1/8” spaced on both ends to give the card some depth so it would be easier to close and not have it to squished.
Inside the card
How I made my cow
To make this cow I had to use some of my punch art skills, I was getting a little dusty lol, I used dies from the following sets to make the face, Surprise Ball pop up, Coffee Charms, Happy Hour Charms, I used a small tear drop hand punch, details below.
To make the body I used 2 Surprise Balls and I used Karen’s VIDEO tutorial on how to make a pop up lizard as a reference to make this cow. The pictures below show the progress but it’s hard to describe with just photos so I do recommend checking out the video.
(I did make the cow first, that’s how I knew it needed to be 8”x 8”)
The animals below are older animals from Karen’s previous collection, she does have new smaller animals in her current collection..
