Cased with a twist



I cased this card from a magazine I just picked up at Mike's. It's called Paper Creations had had these fun doodle-looking cards on the front. If you click the link to take a peek at the cover pictures. I was also surprised that this magazine had a pull out, full size patterns for the card templates.
-
I traced the pattern for the chick and it's wing then drew them onto pink and ruby red paper. I cut them out slightly outside of the traced lines and distressed the edges a bit. The flourishes are from "doodle this" in the spring mini.
-
Since I always feel the need to overembellish I added the red/green plaid ribbon around the bottom of the card. I also punched a hole with the SU Wordwindow and made a tag that slips inside. The top of the tag has the cute little tab punch from the spring mini - you pull the tab out and it says "I'm thankful for you" ($1 Mike's stamp). Almost forgot to mention that the feather on the bird's head is from one of my chickens!! It comes in handy having birds all over the yard - they shed beautiful feathers!

Thanks for looking!

I love this! I too just purchased the magazine and knew immediately that I am going to use the doodle sets with the bird (but I've got to wait for the stamps to arrive!). Thanks for the fab inspiration.

That is too stinking cute. The chick reminds me of a cutesy version of some Autumn Leaves stamps I want.
