“Hey, Chick” Easel Card

A few weeks ago I stumbled on a great tutorial for an Easel Card by Susan Campfield.  It was much easier than some of the others I had looked at,  and I was eager to give it a try with some of the Sale-A-Bration stamps.   If you’d like the details on how to create such a fun and fancy card, please visit her blog HERE.  She shows a few additional samples, and her tutorial is simply wonderful!   To create the “chicken wire” background on the Smoky Slate cardstock, I used the new Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder but I DID NOT emboss with the Big Shot.  For this card, I simply inked up the embossing folder and rubbed the cardstock directly on top of the inked plastic.  Gently rub with your fingertips, and you will get a cute background that resembles chicken wire.  I accidentally forgot to use a marker and color a bit of “ground” below the chicken’s feet.  I guess it looks like she is floating on air, but actually it only looked that way for a few seconds.  Go ahead, color the ground, you’ll be happy you did.  Sorry I didn’t get any photos of the finished product! 

I used a paper-piecing technique on the chicken’s body.  The gray Designer Series Paper is from the Foxy Friends 6×6 Paper Stack.  All supplies can be seen below.  Make sure you take a look at Susan’s samples using this technique.  You’ll love them!

Here’s a peek at the back of the card, just to give you a little bit better idea of how it all works…
