Chickie Couture - Part IV

Hey there, blog friends!

Popping in to share my DeNami Design May 2013 "Chickie Couture" feature!!!  This time around I've dressed Mr. Chickie up for a WILD adventure! Are you ready???

This is the front of my card for today. I left it very plain and simple because I wanted the contrast of the fun-filled inside to be a COMPLETE surprise!

Any guesses as to what's inside?!?!

It's Safari Chickie!!!! Isn't he ADORABLE?!?! His hat is from the newly released Everyday Hats Stamp Set PFD02 and was actually the inspiration for Mr. Chickie's outfit this month!  I drew the vest and pockets by hand. 

The card itself is a pop-up card! This was my first time making a pop-up card and it was super duper easy thanks to DeNami Design's Pop Up Card Kits!!! The kits contain 5.5" x 8.5" pieces of cardstock with solid and dotted lines pre-printed on them and easy to follow instructions. All you have to do is use a craft knife to cut on the solid lines and then fold (as directed) on the dotted lines. Then you go to town decorating it using stamped images and adhere the completed template to a blank 5.5" x 4.25" card! It's SO MUCH FUN, and I LOVE the results!!! You should definitely try these out!!!

Here's a close-up:
