You can’t tell me you’re not smiling. Because this, to me, is just too stinkin’ cute! The Way to Goat stamp set is a new offering in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. You can find that one on page 105.

Each little critter has it’s own distinct personality. But, in today’s Way to Goat Z Fold I wanted to include all of them in the fun. What makes it even more special? The “dancing goat” on the end is mounted on a wobble. So she dances!

If you would like to create a card like this one, you can get the wobbles on Amazon. First of all, I knew I wanted to color all the goats with my watercolor pencils. That was a good choice, not only because they are easy to use, but an economical color medium.

But wait, there’s more! I wanted to include a little coral for the goats, so I added in a fence. But, don’t worry in my video tutorial I’ll show you how easy that can be. Before we do that, let’s decorate the back of the card.
