Chickadee Newborn Congratulations

Chickadee Newborn Congratulations
Made this card for one of my colleague who just gave birth to her fourth son early April. She always wanted a daughter when I knew her before she had her second son but till the fourth pregnancy, she still blessed with a son. Hopefully the next time I made another baby/newborn congratulation card for her, it is a baby girl congratulation card!


Sketch Saturday Week #306
I adopt the simple sketch from Sketch Saturday Week #306 as shown above by rotating the sketch to left. The colors of the card was inspired by Just Us Girls JUGS #237 - Color Challenge as shown below.
Just Us Girls JUGS #237 - Color Challenge

Close-up : The mother hen and its chickadees
On a white card stock, the grass is stamped in multiple layers. Then, three (3) chickadees that are facing right are stamped on the left of the card stock. The mother hen is stamped in front of the three (3) chickadees. This mimic that my colleague already have three (3) kids. In front of the mother hen, a chickadee that is facing left is stamped which mimic her newborn. The images are colored with Copic markers.The broken egg shell is manual created by cutting the whole egg shell into two (2) parts and added some black lining to the 'broken' edges. The broken egg shell is attached to the left and right of the chickadee which mimic he just born.

Close-up : Custom sentiment
The sentiment is customized using alphabets and it is stamped on top of the card stock.

Close-up : Embossed flower panel
An orange card stock is embossed with flowers. I choose flowers because it is spring time now and flowers are always good for celebration occasion. After trimmed, the orange embossed card stock is attached onto a blue card base as in sketch follow by the white card stock that stamped with images.

Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Horizontal fold
Inlay : None
