“Why did the chicken cross the road?” Well, this card takes a look at that age-old question…from the chicken’s perspective! The star of the show is the Chicken Brads.
I hope their dream comes true!
This card was created by modifying a Standing Easel Card by changing where the card folds and also by tracing the top half of the road sign. The card folds flat for mailing:
The background was created by sponging with Distress Inks on white cardstock. After it dried thoroughly, I embossed it with the Cloudy Day embossing folder. I added the Sun brad in the corner to break up the empty space. I added a grassy border to soften the edge of the card. Looking at it again when it’s folded:
To create the crosswalk, I cut a strip of cardstock and added Glitter Washi Tape in Black and Silver on the diagonal. I think it worked out rather well! The greeting was designed to fit in that open area below the crosswalk. I just kept layering until I was happy with the look and the height.
When you open the card up fully, you see the sentiment inside.
I made another card with the Chicken Brads here and I just had to make another one. They’re so darn cute!
Thanks for stopping by today!
