I created something a little different today. It's an easel card that reveals a 2016 calendar once it's open and the chipboard bird is suspended above. I thought this would be something fun to look at throughout the year. I started out with various products from the Sparkle N Sprinkle shoppe, including Want 2 Scrap chipboard, self adhesive bling and of course embossing powders.
After heat embossing two of the Want 2 Scrap chipboard birds with Lemon Sherbet embossing powder, I glued them together with a piece of twine adhered between them. The bird is suspended from a frame created using a Sizzix die (Ticket Fold A Long). I also die cut this twice from cardstock for added strength and both sides were heat embossed with Oriental Fire embossing powder.
Although it's hard to see in the photos, I used a Sakura glue pen to highlight certain portions of the roses in the patterned paper and I added Sparkling Snow glitter to the glue.
