Christmas Chicks

This Christmas card was made using Fun Flock.  Fun Flock is this really cool furry stuff that you can add to stamping and other art, to make it all fuzzy!  I love the Fun Flock I got from Stampendous! 
To create this card, I started with a green card base, then stamped the Christmas chicks and "Merry Christmas" saying on white cardstock.  Then I double mounted both, on red.  To the greeting, I added holly and berries.  For the chicks, I used my Quickie Glue Pen, to add glue to tiny spaces for the different colors of flock.  I used the following colors of Fun Flock: Caramel Latte Tan; Envious Green; Citrus Orange; Snow White; Chili Pepper Red; Lemonade Yellow.  To ease the placement of the flock, I used my reverse tweezers.  I also covered the work with a white paper and used a brayer on top, just to make sure that all the flock attached to the card.  Using the brayer just makes me feel better about it sticking.  I also do this with glitter, sometimes.
