Spring Chick!


After spending time blog hopping through several spring time blog hops and the fact that the sun actually came out today, I decided I had to make a spring card.

I started with a Kraft card stock card base scored and folded to 4 1/4” X 5 1/2”.  My patterned paper is a scrap in my stash. It is two sided paper so the yellow mat is actually just the reverse of the flowers.  The yellow mat was cut at 4” X 5 1/4” and the patterned paper was cut at 3 3/4” X 5”.  The chick and the egg are both from Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge. I used my Imagine and some RGB codes to flood the layers with color. The orange  and black are stock colors on the Imagine. The chick and its layers and the egg were all cut at 3”. I used some canary colored flocking powder to flock my baby chick to give him a fuzzy look. I used some spray adhesive to apply the flocking and actually gave the chick two coats of flocking. The lighter colored belly of the chick is flocked using Ultra Fine Flower Soft in Sand.  I ran the lower half of the egg through my Cuttlebug and embossed it with the Swiss Dots folder. The top half I left as is so I could stamp my sentiment on it. I adhered the chick and the egg top with one layer of foam tape and the lower half of the egg is on two layers of foam tape.  Thanks for visiting.
