Home To Roost, Birthday Card, Masculine Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration

It's getting down to the wire here.  Sale-a-Bration ends in 6 days.  I still have lots of fun things I found on the net to make but they will have to be set aside for another time. Which translates into "you're never going to make them!" 

This was a fun card.  Very easy to make.  It does have a few pieces to it but it wasn't bad at all.  I found it on Pinterest. You can see the original card here.  The only thing I changed were the words.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla that I covered the upper 3/4 with roosters.  I colored in the head part of the rooster using the Real Red marker.

I took a 2" x 4" piece of Real Red card stock and textured it with the "Pinewood Planks" embossing folder.  I taped it to the bottom of the Very Vanilla piece.  I added a 1/2" x 4" strip of Basic Black card stock.  I think it should have been 3/4" instead but it still worked. I taped that over the edge of the Real Red piece, overlapping it a little.

I stamped the rooster on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla and I die cut it using the stitched circle die. And I die cut a Basic Black scalloped circle at the same time. It just saves time when you can run more than one item through.  I taped the two layers together.  I colored the rooster like I did with the others.  I set the layers in place using Dimensionals.  

Next I stamped the words from the "Itty Bitty Greetings" set using black Memento ink. I punched it out using the "Classic Labels" punch.  I added glue to the right side of the piece and a Dimensionals to the left side and set it in place on the card.

And for the final item, I took some linen thread and made a bow.  I used a plastic fork and wrapped it around the tines three or four times.  Before I wrapped it I cut a piece and set it between the middle tines.  Then I wrapped the thread around. I took the cut piece and tied the loops together.  I have seen where you thread the ends through and tie the knot. I did try that but the loops didn't stay in place very nice.  I just clipped the ends that were wrapped around so they weren't visible and the glue dot held them in place. I trimmed the ends of the piece I used to tie it together and it was ready to be set in place on the rooster. 

This is such a bright and vibrant card.  SO masculine too!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
