Goats With Glossy Letters

I just can’t help but smile when I look at those goats. I think this set is automatically in my favorites. 😊 This design was inspired by a card Tammy Stark made that I liked. I added glossy accents to the letters and I love how it makes them really pop.

The hardest part of this entire card was stamping “THE” in that top line. In the stamp set, the word “the” is in a bigger font as part of “THE G.O.A.T.” But on my card it would look pretty strange if only the last word in that line was suddenly way bigger than the rest. So I stamped the first part of the sentiment as normal and then I stamped only “THE” from the “HAY THERE” sentiment included in the set, since it was the same font size as the rest of my sentiment. I placed tape over the other letters when stamping on my ink pad and then removed the tape when I stamped on my card. It’s a little tough to get exactly the right placement for where to stamp like this but it worked out! I did end up with the tiniest spot of ink from the letter R that snuck onto my card next to the E, but I was able to use my white pen to cover it with a small white dot and that made it look perfectly like it was part of my splattered background. The person who receives this card will never know all the work and care that went into just that one tiny part! 😄
