i-crafter | Love Birds Floral Card

It's hard to think that Valentine's Day is right around the corner ... it's not even Christmas yet! But in the crafty world you've got to stay on top of your holidays, right! 

I love that there are so many ways to use the Tunnel Card dies from i-crafter! Of course the traditional way - a box style tunnel card - but I often prefer to use the pieces individually. I picked the circular die with the two love birds on the branch and cut it from the top center of a white panel. 

The Tunnel Card Love Birds Die Set has two smaller dies that cut out the features for the birds. I chose to cut the accent pieces from white cardstock and color them with Copics, but you could cut multiple times from colored cardstock if you prefer. Honestly - I don't love birds in real life! I'm not sure how these birds are supposed to be colored, so I decided to use my creative brain and just go with the flow! I colored the wings, beaks, and feet with a dark gray marker and the faces with orange. I used liquid adhesive to put the pieces of the birds together. 

I wanted to create a simple monochromatic background, so I grabbed my favorite die set - Cherry Blossom Burst. I added double sided adhesive to the back of a peachy orange piece of cardstock and cut the dies multiple times. The die set is meant to pop up off the card, but since I added double sided adhesive they will remain flat. I'm okay with that - especially since you can still see all of that gorgeous detail! 

I needed some color behind my love birds, so I used i-Brush Blender Brushes to add a few shades of orange to a card base behind birds and popped up the whole panel with foam tape. 

I finished off the card by adding small black gems at the center of the Cherry Blossom Burst flowers. I completely forgot to add a sentiment, but that's okay! It's a mistake I make frequently haha! I'll add a sentiment to the inside of the card once I send it out. See you soon!
