Hen and Chicks Mother's Day Card

It will be Mother's Day before we know it, so I made a cute little card for my two granddaughters to give their mother. I used the KaDoodlebug Designs Patterns, CK Hen and CK Chick. They can both be found here:

My card started with a 5 by 7 inch card base. I added a 4 3/4 by 6 3/4 inch red plaid mat, then a 4 5/8 by 6 5/8 inch light tan mat that was run through my Cuttlebug with the Chicken Wire embossing folder. I lightly inked this mat with brown ink. I wrapped this mat with 1/4 inch wide gingham ribbon and raffia tied in the middle and taped to the back.This was attached to the card base with foam tape. 

I made the hen about 4 1/4 inches tall. She was attached to the right side with foam tape.

The chicks were made 2 3/4 inches tall. One was reversed so they would be slightly different. These were attached to the left side with foam tape.

Finally I made a 3 1/4 by 1 1/8 inch label and sentiment using my Explore. I ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Woodgrain border embossing folder. I added a red plaid mat behind it and pearl accents. This was added above the chicks with foam tape.

I love how this card turned out! Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear what you think.
