Do dies get you crowing?

It’s June 1st and that means it is time for another challenge at Scrap It Girl.

This month, the theme is dies. I used an old Cottage Cutz die to create this adorable card …

I started by cutting the die multiple times with different colors of cardstock:

056 Then, I inked the edges with Distress Ink to give it a bit of depth. I completely covered the comb so it would be a different color red than the tail feathers.057 I then added a bit of color to the cuts in the dies with a gray pen.058 For the eyes, I attached a piece of brown cardstock to the back.059 Then I assembled the rooster060 Next, I assembled the card using cardstock and Best Creations paper.061 Glittered paper is sometimes hard to adhere to. So I used Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive when attaching the pieces to the glittered portion of the paper.062 Then I thought the rooster needed a bit more definition, so I made country stitch marks with a black pen.

063Finally, I added a stamp from Darcie’s. Didn’t it turn out cute?!

You have until the end of June to enter … get cropping!
