Stampin' Up! Hey Birthday Chick


Hi!  Thank you for swinging by my blog today.  Today's card was inspired by not one, but two challenges!  The first was Freshly Made Sketches 491 and the second was Color Throwdown 648.  These two challenge are the perfect combination for a fun card!  Of course, to add to that fun, I chose to use Hey Birthday Chick stamps and Pattern Party Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Melon Mambo Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
DSP ~ 4" x 5-1/4" and 1/2" x 5-1/4" (inside)
Basic White Cardstock ~ 4-1/4" x 2" and 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)
Melon Mambo Cardstock ~ 2" x 1"
Granny Apple Green Cardstock ~ 2" x 1"

  1. Color the dots on the DSP with Stampin' Blends or Stampin' Write Markers.  I measured just slightly over 1-1/4" for each section of color. 
  2. Stamp the chicken on Basic White CS.  Then color.  
  3. Use the Birthday Chick Dies to cut around the chicken.  Then, cut out 'happy birthday' in Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green. 
  4. Glue the DSP to the front of the Card Base. 
  5. Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the chicken to the card front.  
  6. Layer the 'happy birthday' cut outs as shown, attaching them to each other and the card front with Liquid Glue.

Color the other strip of DSP to match the front.  Then glue it to the bottom of the 4" piece of Basic White CS.  Glue the Basic White CS to the inside of the card.
