Your How Old?

Have you seen the new chick sets, Cool Chicks and Birds of a Feather, that were just released.  These sweeties are irresistible.  I had so much fun with these and thought I would share a simple card using the Cool Chicks digi version.

One of the great things about digi stamps is they can be printed out at any size.  I designed the card with the images on my computer and printed it out for my card front.  I colored the three birds with alcohol markers and ran it through an embossing folder.  This was layered on the white card base and then Dimensional Glue was run around the edges and covered with Sun Dazzle Sparkle N Soft.

I ran dimensional glue around the edges of the sentiment, covered it with Sun Dazzle Sparkle N Soft, and popped this up in the center of the card front.  After printing this little guy three more times, they were colored with alcohol markers and fussy cut.  I also added a little Sun Dazzle Sparkle N Soft on the wings and tails, using a glue pen.  Then I used more dimensionals to pop the little chicks over the original images around the sentiment.  Of course, I had to add some wiggle eyes.

Hope things are cooler in your area than they are in mine. Have a great week.
