Don't ask me why, but my sister and I always greet each other with "Hey, Chick". So it seems appropriate that I would send her a handmade Hey, Chick Card. I went with a green, gold and black theme since St. Patricks Day is days away. The Hey, Chick stamp set is probably the hottest Sale-a-bration stamp set of 2017. That's just me guessing. I don't know for sure. If you are new to the scene, Sale-a-bration is the time of the year when Free product is offered for every $50 spent! But time is running out because it all ends on March 31 or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. Get all the juicy details here.
For today's card, I employed two stamping techniques-Paper Piecing and Heat Embossing. I heat embossed "Hey, Chick" and the wild doo chicken with gold embossing powder. Paper Piecing is just what it sounds like. Stamp, cut and piece. I stamped the chicken a second time on Old Olive polka dot designer paper and cut out just the body and the head, minus the head feathers. There was no way that I wanted to cut all the wild feathers and the skinny little feet and legs, so I simply colored those in place.
Today's fun extras are the note paper stamped with the Writing Notes stamp and the handmade envelope made with the fabulous Envelope Punch Board.
I just love the look of embossing on a darker card stock. The shiny gold on the Old Olive really pops.
For St. Patricks Day, this week's Color Throwdown Challenge is Green, Black and Gold.
