celebrate you

On one of our theatre trips to Vancouver we had dinner at our friends home before heading back to the ferry. She had napkins that featured these chickens and I thought they could be used on a card. I brought home a new napkin and did the usual separation of layers before adding it to some card stock using ModgePodge. When it was dry I fussy cut each chick and set them aside to be used as embellishments or, as is the case here, as the focal point for a card. Each chick had spots on the wings already and I enhanced them with Nuvo Crystal drops.

The card base was already done with the sentiment as I was unhappy with a card I had done sometime ago and decided to deconstruct it. The sentiment was already embossed in rose gold and one of the chickens has rose gold dots to match. The die is from Kokorosa and I cut the stripes in one piece and added them to the white layer. Actually this layer has a wash of blue over it to make it less stark. Once the chicks were on the layer it was added to the card front and I added a few Pops of Color dots near the beak of each chicken.

I am entering it into the Inkspirational Dots and Stripes challenge. This is the first card I’ve made since Monday, as one my friends was visiting from the mainland and I spent the last few days with her. Thanks for stopping by and have fun till next time.

    1. It was fun figuring out how to put this together. Initially I wasn’t sure how I was going to use them, but they fit the challenge so well.


    1. I’m weird as I see potential for a card in everything. Recently attended a play and took a photo of the stage set because I think it could be a card.

    1. Thanks Lisa. Do you remember when StampinUP came out with heat and stick powder? Several card makers featured napkin cards using this product and glitter and I tried it. Have occasionally used napkins for cards since.


  1. What a fun way to recycle the chickens from the napkin! Amazing where we can find inspiration! Thank you for joining us at Inkspirational with this cute card.
    I didn’t realize you live in BC; I’m just down the road in Alberta.

  2. If this country wasn’t so big we could be neighbors LOL. Thanks for the comment and I have fun with the challenges.


  3. Great job on this card, Johanna! I love that you used the napkin for your focal images. And, that you deconstructed and used pieces from something you didn’t like.
