Hens and Chicks

For last weeks DT challenge we were asked to create any type of project using our Cricut and adding any form of hens and chicks. Being a complete country girl this is right up my alley.

All of the images on my card are from A Country Life cartridge.

As with most of my projects, I started by setting up the images and their layers on my Gypsy.

The sun and hills background and layers are cut at 3 inches

I laid out the papers and cut out.

The chickens and layers are cut at 1.75 inches.

I inked most of the edges before assembly. I made a background of light blue and tan to attach the hills to then added the chickens with dimensionals. The sentiment and butterfly stamps are from Close To My Heart.

A button, twine and some stitching lines and I called it done.
I hope you like my little taste of country life and come back to see what great projects my DT partners have for you.
