I’m doing a set of card kits for a young girl I know and this is one set of them. I had fun figuring this out. It’s a bit unconventional for the challenge.. all three elements are different, but hey. It’s done and I like ’em. 🙂
Okay, first the recipe!
|Keywords: SC267 CBChicks
|Stamps: SU Sentiments
|Paper: SU Red. bashful blue and DP oh and PTI Cream
|Ink: Memento Black
|Accessories: SU oval punches, SU bird punch, seam binding styled ribbon from who knows where, oh and the ticket punch. Forgot that one
|Techniques: Saving of the sanity
Here are all the individual components of the kits. Left to right, top to bottom: Card Base, cream base, second layer for cream base, bird branch, sentiment, bird wing, bird, base oval for sentiment, cream ribbon, and layout options.
Use scrapbooking tape to adhere the printed paper to the cream paper.
Then use the glue to glue down the other layer to the card base (obviously, I’ve folded it already)
Use the tape to glue down the sentiment to the oval. I did mine “off kilter” so it would overlap on the paper a bit–like this.
Then use the dimensionals (foam sticky pieces) and stick two to the back of that oval. Set aside.
Glue the branches down with whatever favorite glues you have. I used Alene’s but only because I was out of my Stampin’ Up stuff that I love. Also glue the bird wing on.
See… branches first.
Once that wing is on…
Put a dot on it for an eye…
Using dimensionals on the back, pop up the bird and put the oval in place. 🙂
Drat, here is the bird dimensional example. Well, this is what you should have done. LOL
Tie a knot in the little ribbon and glue to the top. Voila. All done. 🙂
