Hi from Designer Chris! Today's card is a FUN card that also cracks me up! And, it has a lot of dimension. I used one of our new September stamp releases, Spring Chicken, for this fun card. Let's check it out.

Tonic Hexagon Layering Basics Die Set [1521E]
I created a dimensional card by die cutting cardstock with the Tonic Hexagon Layering Basics Die Set dies (see below for more details). I also die cut some hexagons, which reminded me of how chicken wire looks ... and used them to showcase the sentiments. I stamped out the sentiments, using my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and Versamark Ink. I sprinkled on Timber embossing powder and heat set it. I die cut the sentiment after stamping and heat embossing. I kept the die cut around the hexagon cardstock, and blended some distress ink over it to weather it a bit. Then, I removed the die, rolled on some Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen to the top and bottom edges, and sprinkled on Autumn Medley glitter. Here is a closeup of the sparkle!
I also used the honeycomb stamp from the Honey Bees stamp set and stamped out some random "chicken wire" shapes along the edges of the layers of the card panels too. Here is a close of up of the chicken wire that I stamped with Versamark Ink and then sprinkled on Silver Lightning embossing powder and then I heat set it. I also trimmed some of the edges with more Autumn Medley glue!
Here is a photo of the Bronze Rose embossing powder that I also used as well. I loved these two colors together, it definitely looked like chicken wire in real life.
Here is another photo of the entire card, with the depth. I started out with a back card panel that I covered with a piece of the woodgrain paper from the PhotoPlay Rhapsody Collection Pack. Then, I layered over the three hexagon die cut card panels over the back. I had stamped out the three chickens (see below for more info) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink (which is Copic friendly) and then colored the chickens with Copic markers. Then, I stamped them again (since I was using the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform which allows re-stamping super easy!). I re-stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink, and then sprinkled on Clear Detail embossing powder and heat set it. Then, I fussy cut out the chickens. I layered the chickens and sentiments along the edges of the card and within the layers. I also rolled on more glue onto the egg, and sprinkled on some Peruvian Lily glitter to the egg.You can see all the card dimension in this photo.
And finally, here are the layers that I started out with. I trimmed three pieces of cardstock for the layers using my Tonic Guillotine trimmer. I die cut out the hexagon shape (in three different sizes) with my Tonic Tangerine. Then, I stamped and heat embossed and ink blended up a storm to get colors and texture onto the panels before I assembled the card. Those chickens are so cute ... I love them!
