Thinking of You Chickadee Card Tutorial

As winter settles in here in Minnesota I tend to stay at home and hibernate where it’s warm and toasty.  I start to miss meeting up with friends and it’s nice to keep in touch with a pretty card.  This is what I had in mind when I created this beautiful card.  The Chickadee is a digi stamp from Power Poppy..I love chickadees and had to have it!

I cut a piece of 7″ x 10-1/2″ black cardstock and scored it at  5-1/4″ and folded it to get my card blank.

I cut a piece of white cardstock 5″ x 6-3/4″ for the background.  I got out my Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber and my craft mat.

I pressed the ink pad onto my mat and spritzed it with water.

I mixed that up with a brush and spread it around a bit, then I smooshed my background piece face down into the ink a couple times to get ink all over.

Then I used my brush to spatter on spots.

I let that dry and adhered it to the black card base.

Next I printed out the chickadee from Power Poppy onto white cardstock, I resized the stamp to approximatly 3-1/2″ tall x 3″ wide.

I colored it with the following copic markers:
C0, C03, C04, C06, Y08 & E11

Then I cut the piece down to 4-1/4″ tall x 3-1/4 wide” and inked the edges with my Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber.

Next I took my Spellbinders Nestabilities Iron Romance die set and ran the largest frame through my Bigshot on white cardstock.

I adhered that to the card front.  Then I adhered the colored chickaee.

Using my C.C. Designs Shapers #2 die set I ran the 2″ x  2″ die through my Bigshot on white cardstock.  Then I stamped it with “Thinking of you” from Justrite Large Fancy Sentiments stamp set.  I inked the edges with my Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber.

I glued it to the front of the card, tied a yellow bow and glued that on too, then added a few pearls.

Stamp the inside with your favorite sentiment and it’s ready to send!
