I hope you all are having a lovely weekend. I finally made my first video! You can see it here I was really nervous, so please don’t be too hard on me. I still have to figure out how to enlarge the video to fit the screen. Let me know in the comments what I can do to improve it. I hope to be making a lot more videos! I promised a blog post with the Hey Chick tutorial and measurements so here it is.
Cut the cardstock and paper as follows:
White Cardstock – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″; 3-3/4″ x 5″; 2-1/2″ x 3″.
Bermuda Bay Cardstock – 4″ x 5-1/4″; 2-3/4″ x 3-1/4″.
Designer Series Paper – 2 pieces at 1-7/8″ x 5- 1/4″.
1. Cut a piece of White Cardstock to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score on the long side at 2-1/8″. Turn the paper and score the opposite side at 2-1/8″. Burnish the score lines so the flaps lay down flat.
2. Place the 2 strips of the Designer Series Paper on the front of both the flaps and adhere, leaving an equal border on all 4 sides.
3. Stamp the “Hey Chic” in Early Espresso Ink in the top, right corner of the 2-1/2″ x 3″ piece of White Cardstock.
4. Stamp the chicken image on the 2-1/2″ x 3″ white cardstock with Momento Black Ink. (Make sure it’s dry all the way before coloring.) Color with Stampin’ Blends. (I used both light and dark Mango Melody, Cajun Craze, Bermuda Bay, and an Early Espresso Ink Pad. If you don’t have the Stampin’ Blends, you can use Stampin’ Markers, but make sure you stamp in Black StazOn Ink so the colors won’t bleed.)
5. Adhere this stamped piece of cardstock to the 2-3/4″ x 3-1/4″ piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock. Place glue or Stampin’ Dimensionals on only the left halfof the back of the Bermuda Bay and adhere it to the card on the left, front panel, as shown above. (If you place adhesive on the whole stamped panel, you won’t be able to open your card!)
6. Stamp the 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel of White Cardstock with the small chic image in the lower, left corner of the paper. Use Tuxedo black Ink, if you’re using Stamping Blends, or Black StazOn Ink, if you’re using Stampin’ Markers to color the image. I used Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay, and Ivory to color mine.
7. After coloring, adhere this white panel to the 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock. Then adhere the Bermuda Bay panel to the inside of the card base, leaving an equal border on all 4 sides.
8. Adhere Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the front of the card, if you desire and you’re finished!
Here’s what I used to make the cards:
I hope you make some cards using this tutorial and if you do, I’d love to see them!
