My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

Cascading "Birthday Roosters" Card

I have been commissioned to create a birthday card featuring "kitchen roosters".  I used the rooster on page 77 from the Cricut Cartridge "From My Kitchen".  I cut the roosters in 2 sizes in three colors.

I used the Cricut Gypsy and Cricut Expression to cut the images.
I used the Cricut Gypsy design tool to flip the images.  All the images are layered on the 'shadow' cut.  The wing and top tail feathers are attached with foam double sided tape to give dimension to the image.  All the images were inked with Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" distress ink.
The Cascading Card was created then the topper was added.
Instructions (link) for creating a Cascading Card can be found at the end of this post.
The topper was made using a Martha Stewart 'fence' border punch.
The sentiment was created by placing the letters on a piece of clear plastic, trimmed, and then positioned on the card front.  Two little chick stickers were added.

The large rooster was placed on the card using foam double-sided tape.
The remaining roosters and embellishments were added to balance the card.
