Christmas Card Advent Calendar #21 – Swiss Christmas Cow with bell card

Swiss cow Christmas card featuring topper from Digi Web Studio's Trina Clark Christmas Cows 1 clip art, by Paperesse.

Today's #21 card is a whole lot like my #2 Swiss Christmas Cow card. This time I used the second pre-colored cow topper in the set from Digi Web Studio's Trina Clark Christmas Cows 1 clip art. I layered it against the set's bucket image using PNG files and added shadows (by the way, this super cute set is on sale right now for $1.00).

Paper is digital from Tactile Studio – Retro Noel (the candy cane), Holly (guess? the holly), and Toy Box (the cow print). If you're not familiar with Tactile Studio, now is the time to try out a few of her papers – everything in the store is on sale for $0.99! Since these digital paper packs have anywhere from 6 to 15 plus papers in a pack, it's a very good price. These are my favorite digital papers and I use them often (search the blog by Tactile and you'll see). Some digital papers don't print well when you size them up or down (they can be blurry), Tactile Studio papers print very well. The digital ribbon is also Tactile Studio – Studio Striped Ribbons 2.

And as no proper Swiss cow would be caught without a bell, I've added a small gold one to its neck. The sentiment is my own creation.

Supply List
Paper – cardstock, Tactile Studio digital paper packs – Retro Noel, Holly and Toy Box
Digital pre-colored topper – Digi Web Studio Trina Clark Christmas Cows 1
