A Chicken Valentine

Good morning friends!

I saw a card by Wendy Doherty on Pinterest, and just HAD to make one for our eldest daughter for Valentine's Day. Sort of a private joke, but she's gonna' get such a kick out of this card.

It's a larger card - 5-1/2" wide and 6" tall.  I just drew a heart pattern on scrap paper, then traced onto a folded piece of white card stock leaving 1" of the fold intact. Then I embossed both layers with a candy hearts embossing folder.

I cut smaller hearts from patterned paper, inked the edges then attached them inside. It hides the reverse of the embossing folder, and the backs of the brads I used for eyes.

The 'Sweet Valentine' is a stamp I picked up in the $1.50 bin at Michaels, and I used it on most of our Valentine cards this year.


Supplies used:
Embossing folder - Cuttlebug
Heart dies - Sizzix
Card stock - my stash
Black brads
Patterned paper - Crate Paper 
Stamp - Michaels

Thanks for stopping by today!
