Happy Easter Card with Chickadee

No Easter without a little chickadee, right? And this one is so cute. I have to admit, this is a SU stamp set, but it was just so perfect for this months class.

Due to a lot of fuzzy cutting for the other cards we made, I thought we needed something more ...well, let's say less intense ;-)

Let's start with the super difficult instructions of this card....

You will need a white card base measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", a piece of white cardstock at 3 1/4" x 5 1/2", two strips of grey cardstock about 1/2" x 5 1/2" and a piece of design paper about 3/4" x 5 1/2". I picked some yellow design paper to match the rest of my colors in this card. 

All stamping was done on the extra piece of white cardstock. The phrase was stamped in grey ink and the chicken is stamped in black. To color the little chicken you can use any coloring tools you have on hand. We used alcohol markers in two shades of yellow to color in the body as well as an orange and grey marker.

To assemble the card, first adhere a grey strip flush to the top and bottom of the card. Next adhere the design paper strip to the bottom of the card leaving about 1/4" of the grey showing. Wrap some bakers twine or ribbon around the white cardstock piece before adding it with foam dots to the front of your card. Make sure it is centered so part of the design paper as well as the grey cardstock on top will show.

Add some decoration to the inside and your card is done.
How cute is this little cutie?
