Awesome Chick


It's Anja here for my Sunday post. While I'm still waiting for the new slimline dies and stamp sets to arrive, I'm still making cards with cute Country Farm release dies. This time I made a smaller card with a cute chick.

For this card I used:

- Cottage Cutz dies (Cowgirl Chick, Nested Stitched Rectangles Slimline),

- Distress Inks and Oxides,

- yellow, orange, red, light brown, dark brown, green and white card stock for die cuts,

- black pen, 

- white ink, 

- dark brown foam,

- black pigment ink,

- sentiment stamp,

- acrylic block,

- scissors,

- plastic stencil (clouds),

- baby wipe, 

- scoring board, 

- adhesive foam pads,

- paper glue. 

First I cut and colored the chick. This time I used colored card stock and just emphasized the edges with Distress Inks. I also cut the hay from foam to give it some dimension. 

Next I cut the rectangle and made a card base out of it.  

Then I colored the card stock with Distress Oxide ink and added the clouds with a plastic stencil and baby wipe. 

Last I stamped the sentiment and cut it out.

When I had all the pieces ready I adhered the chick on the card base. I used adhesive foam pads for the chick and two layers of foam for the hay to give it more dimension. Last I added the sentiment and my card was done. 

And that's all from me for today. Before I go I want to invite you to The Scrapping Cottage online store to check the new Lil' Bluebird Designs release and Christmas in July Sale.
Have a nice week and see you again on Sunday.
