Hi Jeanne here today with a fun project to share! This “Just a Little Note” card is bright and sunny and sure to brighten your day!
I started by debossing the Stitched Banner Duo 2 die on a panel of white card stock. Debossing is easy – instead of cutting the die with your cutting place, you simply put a rubber embossing matt and special plate through your machine so it presses the design into the paper instead of cutting it out. Be sure to follow the directions provided by your machine manufacturer.
I wanted to add more definition to the debossed image so I cut the Stitched Banner Duo 2 a second time from a piece of scrap paper. Holding the die cut banner over the debossed one I distressed along the edges of the die cut to create a soft yellow glow.
Then I got to work on my layout. I knew I wanted to place the little chickie from Birdie Notes inside the banner. I stamped a sentiment just under where she would be, and some musical notes that would be around her head.
I stamped and die cut the birdie (the coordinating die cuts make this a breeze) and attached a wobbler to the back. I had to trim the wobbler to size to fit the back of the die cut shape. This doesn’t affect the spring action unless you cut the coiled plastic.
What a surprise when you touch the little chickie!! This is so fun to see the little chickie “wiggle it”!
You know I can’t resist my bling – I attached a few Sunshine Glow sequins to make me happy!
