Hey Chick, Birthday Card, 2017 Sale A Brations

So, does this card speak to you as a birthday card or a friendship card?  I was thinking birthday card at first and then I started thinking.  UGH.  Don't think!!! LOL  I'm going to present it as a birthday card.  If I don't use it, I will be selling it and let the buyer purchase it as whatever they think it is!!

I found this card on Pinterest.  I changed the color of the hen and the Baker's Twine.  I didn't have any solid red, so I went with what I had on hand.  I could have taken a red Sharpe and colored the twine but I was too lazy!!!

The base of this card is a folded half sheet of Real Red card stock. Then a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock. On top of that is a 3-3/8" x 5" piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I stamped all of the chickens from the set onto the Crumb Cake piece using Crumb Cake ink.  

Before I taped the Chocolate Chip cardstock down I cut the oval for the chicken right in the center.  No one will ever know it's not a solid piece of cardstock.  It's a great way to save on cardstock when you don't have a scrap piece for what you need.  I did have to use a piece of Real Red cardstock for the scalloped oval. I didn't have any scrap, so I had to use a 1/4 sheet piece.

I stamped the chicken and die cut the oval.  Then I colored it in.  I don't color before I cut.  I've wasted so much time doing that in the past. I would ruin the image after it was all colored.  So now I color after cutting.  I added the words using Crumb Cake ink.

It was a fun card to make and I got to finally use every chicken in the set!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
