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.

Blooming Layers Easel Card: click to enlarge

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.


Hen: TN 1, 2, blender
Beak, Feet: BO 1, 3
Flower: MG 1,2, CT 2, 4, LG 2, 5
Hat: GB 1, 4, 6, green florescent gel pen
Hat Band: CG 3, LG 3
Dress: MG 1, 2, 3, pink florescent gel pen
Apron: TB 1, blender

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

Have a great crafty day! If you liked my card, please leave a comment; I'd love to hear from you! ~ Shirley
