My Favourite Things Card Birthday Chicks by Kathy Tanner

My Favourite Things Card Birthday Chicks

Hi it’s Kathy here, with a cute card to share My Favourite Things Card Birthday Chicks.

I made a birthday card with the super-cute MFT stamp Birthday Chicks. They are adorable aren’t they?!

I also used a new MFT die called Big Birthday which I really love too!

I started off by colouring the chicks with Copics (which was fun) and then I made a background for them using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

I used some repositional tape to create a straight line for the grass and sponged on some Mowed Lawn and Evergreen Bough with the Tim Holtz mini foam ink blending tool.

I used the tool again to apply Peacock Feathers for the sky and then I splashed on a little water.

I cut the die out using orange cardstock and used a glue pen to adhere it to the background.

The best and easiest way to get your letters straight and even is to use the outside of the diecut as a kind of template.

I cut a rectangle around the “Happy Birthday” from the die-cut and adhered it to the background with the same tape I used when I sponged the distressed grass.  It held the template in place while I glued the back of each letter and adhered it back into the stencil.  When you’ve glued them all in you just remove the tape and the outer piece (the template)  and the letters are positioned perfectly!  🙂

I popped the chicks up on some foam tape and added some stars from the Jillibean Soup Shaker Card and Sequin Pack Watercolour with Shapes .  These are lovely!  They are clear but have a hint of orange and they worked perfectly with this card.  I attached them with Tim Holtz Glossy Accents.

I loved creating this bright and happy card!

I hope you enjoy some crafty time this week too 🙂
