Just Chicken In

Hi Crafty Friends,

"Just Chicken In" with you today to share a pop-up card I created.

I recently added Mama Elephants Zodiac Rooster and Little Chickie Agenda stamp sets to my stash, so for my card today I decided to create a Chicken Coop pop-up card.

I used Karen Burniston's Cupcake Pop-up die set for the pop-up portion of the card. While this die is an actual cupcake image on the pop-up it also makes a fabulous generic pop-up like I used on my card today. I die cut the pop up from white cardstock and then another from patterned paper for the upper portion of the card. For the lower portion I used yellow inks and a blender brush to added color, and then splattered dark yellow and brown inks over the panel. 

I also stamped a few chicken footprints over the sides of the base of the card.

I used Mama Elephant's Ornate Grid House for the Chicken Coop. I die cut the house from white & red cardstock. I then colored the white house using brown markers and used Honey Bee Stamps Shiplap Stencil to add the lines for the wood of the coop. I then trimmed the roof off the red house and added it to the decorated chicken coop. I used the house to trace out a solid panel and colored that with dark brown inks. Before adhering the two together, I die cut some grass panels from white cardstock and colored them with yellow/orange inks and added behind the openings of the house/coop. 

I added some of the chickens from the Zodiac Rooster and Little Chickie Agenda stamp sets to the chicken coop, before adhering it to the pop-up panel.

I added a fence and grass to the back of the chicken coop, which is adhered to the back panel. I also added a sun to the top right corner of the card.

I used Lawn Fawn's Oliver's ABCs to spell out the word "Chicken" onto a white panel and adhered this to the lower portion of the card. I added a couple more of the chickens from the Zodiac Rooster stamp set. I stamped the "Just" and "In" which is part of the sentiment included in the stamp set onto black cardstock and added these two words to the chickens above and below the large "Chicken" word.

I used some of the same elements on the front of the card that I used on the inside. 

I colored a white panel with yellow inks and splattered with yellow and brown inks and then stamps the chicken footprints all over the panel.

I added a few of the chickens from both of the stamps sets to an oval panel which is attached to the top portion of the card.

I added the word "Hi" to the oval panel above the chickens. I then added the word "Chickie" to the lower portion of the card.
