Hey, Chick Housewarming Card

I made this card for the amazing Kylie & Bruno Bertucci who have moved to their new house.

Two chickens (OK - one should be a rooster!) in their new coop!

It's a little bit quirky (and I hope they don't think I regard them as a couple of chooks!) but I wanted to make something a little bit different for them and I do love the images in the Hey, Chick stamp set (FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $90 purchase!).

The paper (from the Urban Underground pack) reminds me a bit of chicken wire.  I wanted to keep the colour scheme simple and the Delightful Dijon pops nicely against the simple black and silver.  

The chickens are heat embossed, one in white and one in clear, on Basic Black cardstock and then bleached.  I used the Layering Squares framelits to cut out the white chicken and added a Delightful Dijon frame cut with two of the Layering Squares.  I fussy cut the black chicken and added it with Stampin' Dimensionals (because no card should go to Bruno without dimensionals!).

This label has a beautiful shape that really suits the Brushwork Alphabet letters
The inside of the card is decorated with a small piece of paper from the same Urban Underground pack, to which I added the Basic Black and Delightful Dijon layers cut with dies from the Stylish Stems framelits.  The final step was to use Basic Black ink to add their initials (K&B) using the Brushwork Alphabet stamp set

Thank you for visiting.  
'Til next time!
