Design Team Feature Thursday - Kittie Caracciolo!
Happy Easter by Dina Kowal

Fly by Jenny Gropp

Oh my! Check out this gorgeous card from Jenny Gropp!

Jenny uses Clear Set #CL476 You can Fly, Large Bird on Branch #DIE161-N, Alphabet Typewriter Lowercase #DIE159-M, Feather Die Set #DIE143-R

 

 

 Hope you are enjoying the great die ideas the team is sharing as much as I am! For today's card I chose to make the new Large Bird on Branch Die the focus. I used the Square Shaker Frame to frame the bird. I cut it twice, once in ivory and once in blue. I used a square die to cut away more of the inside on the blue frame to get a layered look. 

 

 

 

 Here's the base of the card. I used a square die to cut out a window in the card base and the front layer panel. I wanted the opening to go all the way through since I was going to use vellum. The vellum would allow some light to come through. I lightly distressed the edges with a Creamy Brown Chalk cats eye ink pad. 

 

 

 

 Here you can see my card coming together. The bird and branches are tucked in between the ivory and blue frame. I used foam tape in between the two frames as well to give it more dimension. 

 

 

 

 I backed the frame with vellum before adhering it to the front panel. You can see it is a thick vellum... my fingers are just shadows behind the vellum. But when the card opens it lets the light come through nicely. I added "fly" using the new Typewriter Alphabet Die.

 

 

 

 Here's the inside... I used the clear set You can Fly for the sentiment. This set is full of great sentiments to go along with our Feather Dies or any of the Bird Dies.

 

 

 

When the card is closed, the vellum is thick enough not to show the inside of the card. The finished card is 5" square and opens at the bottom tent style. 

 

Have a great day!
