Just Chicken In .....

I needed to make a card for my son's bus aid, as he had surgery a few weeks back.  We miss him like crazy and just wanted him to know we were all thinking of him... so, needed a manly but cute card....
This is what I came up with.
I used the Mini Note Cards (just scaled it a little larger to be a 4 X 4 card instead.
I cut the cute Chicakdees file and pop dotted him on an outset mat I made in the Designer Edition Software on my Cameo.
Found the cutest sentiment from Udderly Adorable and add it to a min tag die.
Tied it all up with some Maya Road twine in Pumpkin Orange. I LOVE this twine..its nice and thick and you get a nice amount for the price!
Oh and I used the Cameo Sketch Pens to do the stitching on my white bordered outset.
I admit, the face is girlie on the Chick..but its what I grabbed from my stash as I just need to get it done!

Ohmygoodness, Annie!

That card is SO ADORABLE!!! :) He is going to love it! And that sentiment is perfect! I love the paper, texture (embossing) you added, and what I thought was doodling! That's pretty cool that you were able to do the "stitching" on the white with the Cameo & a pen.

Thank you for taking the time to share!

I love this card. But you lost me for a second at "pop dotted him on an outset mat I made in the Designer Edition Software on my Cameo". It looks like the paper was run through an embossing folder. Is that not the case? :) I'm still learning, and will be for some time to come, this is why I ask. Thanks for posting this adorable card. You give me good ideas. I picked up a Cricut chicken wire folder at Joann's (with a coupon!) and I want to make a cute Spring card with a chicken to send to a friend. Can't wait to give it a whirl.
