Howdy Just Chicken In

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce our new challenge hostess which is Karen Ostergard.

Apparently today is National Fried Chicken Day in the U.S.  For today's challenge, create a card with a bird on it.

Seeing it is National Fried Chicken Day, I decided the bird I would use on my card would be Karen Burniston's new chicken die from the Chicken, Pig and Lamb die set. 

I have created a pop stand card using the Barn Pop Stand Card die set, which is being re-released. For something different I decided to create a pink barn. Karen Burniston recently shared with the Design Team an idea of using the fence from the Farm Edges die set on either side of the barn. As I was adding chickens to my card I decided to add the chicken wire instead of the fence.


The barn doors open up to reveal another chicken inside the barn which is behind some chicken wire.

I added the fence from the Farm Edges die set. I added another chicken on the left hand side of my card and a sentiment on the right which is layered onto the rectangle from the Rectangles - Crosshatch die set.

This is a view of the back of my card. I used the tractor border which is also from the Farm Edges die set and a sun which is from the Tropical Scene die set.

One last photo of the inside of the card showing an overhead shot of my card, so you can see the whole card at one time.

For the front of the card I added two of the papers I used on the inside. I also added the fence to separate the two papers.

On the lower left hand corner I added another chicken to which I added a hat and pitchfork which are from the Accessories 3 die set.

On the top right hand side of the card I added the "Howdy" sentiment from the Howdy die set. I then added the "Chicken In" sentiment which is from an old stamp set in my stash which unfortunately is no longer available. After stamping the sentiment onto my cardstock, I then used one of the arms from the Photo Collage Pop-up to die cut the sentiment. I love when you find another use for a die.
