I am behind in making Easter cards so I'm going to make variations of the same card. I found a cute little chick pillow on Oriental Trading's website (a great place to go for craft inspiration....don't buy much there, but I like to look...) I thought it would be an easy design to copy.
I used a 4" yellow George oval for the face...inked it....used the George triangle 2 1 1/2" (trimmed down a bit) for the nose...inked it...and the eyes are the snowball layers on Doodlecharms, cut a double set at 1". This is the easiest way to get small circles that I have found. Used some white gel pens to make his eyes look "real". Used chalk ink for the cheeks. The bonnet is the pioneer boy's on PPDU cut at real-dial 3". I cut it apart.....embossed it with the Swiss Dots folder (this is my FAVORITE!!!) and attached the brim with pop dots for dimension. I added some ribbon flowers and a big flower cut on George 1 1/2" on metallic paper, 1 1/4" on cardstock, and attached a button center. The bow tie is the layer feature on the baby head of Doodlecharms, cut at real dial 3", embossed, inked, and button attached. I only glued down the center so it would stand out. I'm going to make these chicks in different colors and find an EASY sketch to follow to make the cards. I love pastel prints and dots so I have lots of patterned papers to use.
