No Spring Chicken!

I saw the instructions last weekend for making a Hexagon Pop Up Card over on Beccy's Place blog HERE.  I haven't seen this fold before, but couldn't wait to try it.  My hubby and I have just come home from a short break and I've finally found the time to share my card on my blog.

The image and chicken sentiment are from Beccy's 'Spring Chickens' set of digital stamps.  I used the pre-coloured image.  The circle and scalloped circle are both Memory Box die cuts.

The panels on the bottom section are embossed with a Crafts-Too 'Feathers' embossing folder.  The card folds flat for posting and fits in a 6" x 6" envelope.

I am joining in the following challenges:

Just sharing a few photos taken during our few days away.  If you are ever near Guildford, visit the Watts Chapel in Compton.  It's the most amazing chapel I've ever visited.

We also spent a couple of days visiting the Historic Boatyard and harbour in Portsmouth.


  1. Such fun card! Love the great folding and that chick!
    That chapel is absolutely amazing and stunning, thanks for sharing the photos!

  2. That chicken is so funny! She could fit in so easy in the Time Out challenge! Hugs, Gerrina

    1. Hi Gerrina. I was going to join in the Time Out Challenge, but I checked the rules and I had already joined in more than four other challenges. xx

  3. What an amazing card. I could probably have never made it. Yours is perfect. I also had to laugh at the sentiment. It fit the chicken so well. This is a beautiful and quite unique card you have created for Try it on Tuesday's Birds and/or Feathers theme.

    I also appreciated your showing places I may never have the opportunity to visit. The chapel was beautiful. and I really, really liked that historic boatyard and harbor in Portsmouth.

  4. An absolutely brilliant fold Liz the "Spring Chicken " and sentiment made me smile.Thank you for showing the pictures of the beautiful chapel

  11. What a cute image and the shape is fantastic Liz, and love your colouring of the fun chicken, and the stitched scalloped shape and also the dry embossing with the complementary feather design look great, and a fun sentiment too. Glad you enjoyed your break and love the photos. We were about 45 minutes away from Guildford but never got to visit the chapel at Compton, but what a terrific place and I love the wonderful tiles and the ornate finish to the inside. Portsmouth is an interesting place too, and of course the weather was perfect. x

  12. Fantastic card Liz, you've done an awesome job putting it together. The orange panels look fabulous and coordinate nicely with the image. I love the embossing, it adds lots of great texture.
