I made these cards at the same time I made the Rooster Pop Up Cards. I don’t know why I didn’t blog them at the same time.

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 cards

Extra Details:  I began these cards by die cutting some white paper. Because these are layering stamps, I find it easier to die cut before stamping. I never get the feet in the right space if I stamp before die cutting. I die cut four of each image to be on the safe side. I used the first two on the Rooster Pop Up Cards and the extras on these cards.

I placed the negative areas in my MISTI and lined the stamps. I placed the die cuts in the negative spaces to stamp each of the layers. I found this to be really easy and accurate way to stamp these images.

Next, I created two card bases from pumpkin colored card stock. I used Hero Art’s Pumpkin Pie ink to add the quilting lines. I also added a white liner to the inside of each card base.

I cut a long rectangle of white card stock to layer my images for the front of the card one. I dry embossed a stitched detail to each edge of the white card stock. I added two small strips of embossed brown card stock to each edge of the white rectangles. I adhered this panel to the center of each card base. I stamped the sentiment in a navy ink and the grass in an olive green ink. I used  foam dots to adhere the roosters to the card fronts.

For the inside of the cards, I stamped an additional sentiment and added the chicks.
