It's Thursday and that means that it is the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #605. This week we have a color challenge.
We are using the colors Grapefruit Grove, Daffodil Delight, and Coastal Cabana. At once I thought about the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper. Here's my card!
Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Score at 4 1/4 and fold. Use a Bone Folder to burnish. Cut the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Glue to the card front. I usually cut this layer just a tiny bit larger. Then I trim off the extra with scissors. If for some reason, the base is a little larger than the cut paper, just trim to fit.
The Coastal Cabana layer is cut to 3 1/2 x 4 3/4. Top this with a layer of the diagonal stripe patterned paper measuring 3 3/8 x 4 5/8.
Add these layers with dimensionals.
The chick from the Full of Happiness is so cute! He is a little weird at first, but once you add the beak and eyes, he comes alive! They are easy to place since the set is photopolymer. The chick is stamped first on Whisper White in Daffodil Delight. Add the beak in Grapefruit Grove and the eyes with Memento Black. For this card there is no need to stamp the feet. They will be hidden. Fussy cut the chick.
Stamp the outline of the egg 2 times on Whisper White using Coastal Cabana ink. Add the stripes stamp in the same color. Cut these out with the Dino Dies. These dies can be found in the Annual Catalog.
Add the chick and the shells to the card with dimensionals. Use glue where the shells over lay.
The saying is from the Full of Happiness set. Stamp on white scrap in Coastal Cabana. Cut apart and add to the card.
The card needed just a little something. I added some Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dots.
The saying for the inside of the card is from the Timeless Tropical stamp set. Stamp in Grapefruit Grove. Stamp the chick as on the front. This time make sure to add the feet in Grapefruit Grove!
I think this card is really cute! I hope you like it, too! Thanks for you time today. Stamping is my business. Please let me know if I can be of help to you.
