NO SPRING CHICKEN EASEL CARD



My sister is celebrating a milestone birthday that she is not too thrilled about, so I decided to make her a cute little card to mark the day.


I used two files from My Scrap Chick for my card.

Shirley, Goodness, Mercy Digis


I cut the four layers of the flower from a thin cardstock, and another set from heavier cardstock, and layered the corresponding pieces on top of each other to give the flower stability. I used foam tape between the layers to give the flower dimension.





I added a sentiment made in Design Space using a system font.


I added a blue dotted circle to the center of the flower and some grass borders to the bottom of the frame.


The chick was colored with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.

I love how this card came out! The Blooming Layers Easel Card is the perfect frame for the cute mother hen.
