Sending Birthday Wishes to a Spring Chicken

Sending Birthday Wishes Card

I’ve been really excited to share this card because I am so happy with how it came out… and you can never have too many birthday cards on hand!

Spring Chicken Card

For this card, I partially die-cut a stitched circle into my top panel to create an opening to perch my cute little chicken on. I stamped then colored the chicken with Copic markers onto the card base, and then masked him off and used distress inks and a mini ink blending tool to create the bright yellow/orange background. I die-cut the Sending sentiment with the Simon Says Stamp Sending die, colored it with my Copics to make it a nice red-orange color, and glued it to my panel. I then also used several sentiments from the SSS Birthday Farm Animals stamp set to assemble the rest of the greeting at the bottom of the card. Then I mounted my panel on top of the colored chicken using foam tape to give it a bit of dimension.

I didn’t get the sentiments stamped quite evenly, but I think it kind of adds to the playfulness of the card.
