Hey, Chick - Looking Eggselent! Sale-A-Bration

This card was inspired by the Global Design Project sketch challenge this week  #GDP070.

No ducks, but the eggs are almost lined up in a row!

It's a very straight forward card.  I stamped the images from the free Sale-A-Bration stamp set Hey, Chick onto Very Vanilla cardstock and coloured them with watercolour pencils and an aqua painter.

I mounted the stamped strip onto a slightly larger piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock and then another piece of Very Vanilla (this time I didn't place it evenly - I left a wider border at the top).  I added the fussy cut "stickybeak" before adhering the panel to the piece of paper from the Carried Away Designer Series Paper pack.

It's a happy but non-specific greeting suitable for all sorts of occasions

 Naturally, the stickybeak makes a appearance inside the card too!

The peeking chicken is adhered with a piece of dimension so that it sticks forward from the panel.
At this point in writing this blog post I'm wondering whether "stickybeak" is a term used anywhere outside of Australia!  If not - it can be translated as "nosey-parker"!

I'm really having fun with this stamp set - I'm still pinching myself that it was a freebie!  In fact, the ribbon and the pack of printed paper were also freebies!

  3. I am glad you clarified about the sticky beak. I am from America and I had no idea what you were talking about! :) I am in the middle of making my card right now using your idea. We will see how it turns out!

    1. Hi Michelle! Yes, I had an idea it was a phrase unique to Australia! It would be great to see your card when you've finished!
