You're So Tweet Box Card with Pretty Pink Posh

Wednesday, April 5, 2023

This is the first project I made when I received my package of Spring products from Pretty Pink Posh! I saw those cutie Spring Chicks and knew I needed to get them stamped as quickly as possible. I started with stenciling the Layered Chicks Stencils with Distress Oxides – the chicks are Squeezed Lemonade (bodies), Dried Marigold (wings/beaks) and Ground Espresso (eyes). For the eggs, I did a mix of Spun Sugar, Salvaged Patina and Twisted Citron to get some pastel colored Easter egg shells!

Using the Scallop Box Card Dies, I die cut the scalloped panels out of my stenciled cardstock. I die cut the Box Card out of Sunflower Yellow Cardstock from my Your Paper Insider Box 2 – the large base was cut once and the smaller panels were die cut three times. I adhered the box together with two of the smaller panels as little “shelves” for my stamped images and used some strong adhesive tape to ensure my box was nice and sturdy. The scalloped die cut pieces were glued to the inside, back panel and sides of the Box Card.

Before I glued the front panel on, I stamped the “You’re So Tweet” in Pinecone VersaFine ink. You can also die cut another large, scalloped panel to glue on the back of the Box Card so you can write a personal note! Next I stamped some of the adorable chicks in eggs and one without an egg in alcohol marker friendly brown ink from the Spring Chicks Stamp Set. Using Ohuhu Art Markers, I colored them in with colors that matched as best as I could to the Distress Oxide colors in the background. Once I added some highlights with a white gel pen, I die cut them out with their Coordinating Dies.

I added the images to the “shelves” inside of my Scallop Box Card– I just love the three eggs with the chicks popping out! They went on the back shelf and my other two chicks are in the front so you could see them peeking around each other. I hope this brings you just a bit more Easter inspiration before the holiday this weekend. If you're local to Orange County in California, you can even see this card on display at Stamp Fever!
