Easter Bonnet

In her Easter Bonnet, This weeks card just in time for Easter using the Cottage Cutz Spring Bonnet Chick die. The main thing I wanted to show you is to cut the Wing, Tail and Bow twice and cut as an additional piece of card stock. This way you can use to add dimension to the chick. I used Glossy Accents to add the stable base to glue the pieces at a slight angle.It acts like a pop dot to hold the card stock up!!!. I glued the wing down first at an angle. I cut the tail feathers as three individual feathers and glued them under the raised wing top and cut them a little short so they would look like three more tail feathers besides the flat feathers. The Bow ribbon was glued down as normal and the second bow piece was glued flat in the center with the ribbon loops with the loops popped up.

The Chick was cut with Doodlebug Sugar Coasted card stock, highlighted with a orange Copic marker. Also understand the Copic colors oddly on the glitter coated card stock . . give it a longer time to dry (and it does not really blend well) but it highlights great. . 

Happy Easter to all and to all a filled basket of goodies. . . . . Barry
