Today for your viewing pleasure, I am featuring the Country Farm Chicks from our Country Farm collection. I created a birthday card with a sassy birthday sentiment. I have a few brothers who would think this is just too funny. So one of them will receive it for their birthday. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:

I started my card this week with the layout. I had this one saved from Splitcoaststampers #856 and thought it would work well for the images I wanted to use. I did take some liberties with the sketch. Layer 4 is moved to the top of the image panel and instead of a rectangle image, I used a cloud. 
Next, I die cut the chick images using different colors of colored cardstock. I used the packaging colors because I liked them. You could always use white cardstock and then color the images with your favorite coloring medium. Our design team does each of the ways I just mentioned.
I selected a sky themed background paper for layer 2 of the sketch. I used a blue panel for layering. My hill is cut from designer paper using the Hills Slimline die. I decided to add a sun and that is cut from the Clouds & Sun die. 
Blue Layering Panel - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer Paper Layer - 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
I cut my cloud image and stamped my sentiment in a blue ink. 
Now that all my elements are prepared I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the designer paper and the sun to the blue layering panel with double sided tape. The farm chicks and the cloud sentiment are attached with dimensional adhesive. 
To finish off my card I added a white card base. The base is 4 1/2" x 5 3/4".  Scattered a few glitter enamel dots and this card is complete. I hope I have given you a fresh idea for a way to use these cute farm chicks. See you next Saturday with a sample from the new Slimline release.
