Hey Chick!

Hi everyone! We are busting right through March – can you believe it?! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m excited to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a friendship card featuring some super fun brads and some pearls to doll it up!

First of all, aren’t these Chicken Brads just a hoot?! When I saw them, I knew I had to have them because I have the perfect stamp set to use with them! I created a top folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and rounded the bottom right corner. I dug into my digital image stash and found a small chicken wire image that I duplicated multiple times and pieced together to make it large enough to go across the panel, keeping it proportional to the size of the chicken brads. I complimented the white cardstock with yellow cardstock, and stamped the sentiment in black ink. I added the Chicken Brads, a few scattered pearls from a White Pearl Bling Strip on the background and three slightly larger White Pearl Bling on the yellow cardstock strip. I colored all the pearls with a tan-colored alcohol marker prior to affixing them to the card front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of the yellow cardstock used on the front, stamped the sentiment in black, and layered the panel on the yellow.

And here’s one more peek… I absolutely love how this turned out! Those chicken brads are so fun!
