Spring Chick!!

Okay....the inspiration of this card is not from my own imagination, but from a gift tag, I recently saw, shaped like an Easter egg!  I took a standard pre-cut, plain, white greeting card and cut a piece of yellow print scrapbook paper from the DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack.  I then took the green print frame from my Martha Stewart School Days Multimedia Pad.  On the back of the frame I adhered a piece of yellow felt.  I then attached the the black brads from Creative Imaginations for the eyes.  I cut small pieces of orange felt for the hands, feet, and beak.  I took my white Gelly Roll pen and lightly outlined the orange felt.  I found the cute Easter stamp in the dollar bin at Joann's!!  (I just can't pass up a great deal!!) I stamped the words onto some off-white paper and adhered the paper to a piece of lime green cardstock.  I then used bead cord to create the handles for the sign.  I topped this cute chick off with a few black feathers that I had stashed away in my craft room.  Hope you like him!!          Happy Saturday!!

  2. Thanks Tanya! I think I'll try some Easter patterned fabric as the chick's "body" on my next card. I appreciate your feedback!

  3. Patty, I saw your post on the Cricut MB & thought I would come to visit your blog. Am I glad I did! Such pretty work you do. Just lovely to look at & enjoy. Good luck with the blog. I am jealous--maybe one day I will be able to start & keep up with one!
