When I first saw this new Pretty Printable Chicken Gingham digital paper from the set called Cute Critters AND I saw the Welcome Home template I just knew I wanted to make a "Chicken Coop" of sorts. I used my Cricut and SCAL software - by the way - a HUGE thank you to Canda from CandaCrafts for donating the SCAL software to the MTME design team - it is AMAZING! Here's the coop - if you look closely at the chimney you'll even see a whiff of "smoke" coming out :-) [I did cut off the chimney from the back side so this coop only has one chimney but in it's original format both front and back of house have a chimney.]
I added a double punched border at the bottom. Tied up the whole template with some great wired ribbon from Michaels and some brown dotted swiss satin and a little twine.
Next up - I made a matching tag to hang from the ribbons over the edge of the roof - with this matching set of Chicken stamps it was super easy to coordinate card, tag and template! Stamped the image in brwon Memento ink then colored the chicken with a couple of copics. Now the sentiment - "Just Chicken In" - isn't that the cutest??? :-)
Here's the card I made to match the chicken coop - using the same components, colors, paper and stamps:
The two chicks are from Critters with Heart acrylic stamp set - so cute! I had to decorate the inside of the card to go along with the whole idea and here's what I came up with - a "scene" of sorts...
This Welcome Home template is very generous in size -
I made the set for a friend who's under the weather - and what better to make someone feel better than with some chicken soup and tea?!? This Welcome Home template holds four packets of chicken noodle Cup O Soup and 4 tea bags - (I'm SO Sorry - I forgot to photograph the box when it was open.)
