Wedding Card

Welcome to Little Birdie Crafts blog!

Wioletta here! Today I would like to show you a step by step process of how to make a card with a delicate lace. The card is decorated with incredibly delicate Little Birdie flowers, ideal for a wedding ceremony.

We need a white cardstock base and a paper lace made from a die. Measure the height of the lace from the bottom of the card base.

Cut the excess paper with a paper cutter from the front fold. (refer image)

In this place, stick a stiff transparent film. The film must be slightly larger than the piece of paper cut off by us.

Select a pattern paper. Cut it to size and stick it on the front face of the base.

This is the base that we will decorate.

Put a cut-out paper lace on the transparent film, taking care not to put too much glue. We must do it carefully so as not to soil the film with glue.

Now, choose another coordinating pattern paper design, cut it to a slightly smaller size than the previous paper and adhere it on the base with double sided adhesive squares.

 

Select a chipboard shape and paint it with Tinted Metallic Paint.

 Now, prepare the flowers that will be used for decorating the card.

Arrange the chipboard shape and the flowers as you like. This is how the details of my work look.

 Serdecznie pozdrawiam

Best wishes

Listen To Your Heart – A Mixed Media Project

Hi everyone,

Saadia here with a mixed media project. I hope you like it and get inspired.

 

 

 

 

This is how I made it :

I used an old Vinyl record as a substrate and applied a thick layer of 2 in 1 Mixed Media Paste.

While the paste was drying, I started working on the focal point. I cut basic house shapes from a chipboard sheet. I painted them with Tinted Metallic Acrylic Paints and stamped a brick pattern on them.

Next, I colored the project with Alcohol Splash sprays in Golden Canary and Mocha.

 

After that, I glued my embellishments, twigs, burlap, flowers and primed chipboard shapes with gel medium.

 

Added Little Birdie Crafts new green sequins, few beads and a title from my stash.

 

That’s all for now.

Thank you for your precious time

Take care and keep crafting.

Saadia Nawaz.

Blessed Love Layout

Hello it is Linda from Down Under –  thanks so much for stopping by.

I have another layout to share with you – a feminine layout using so many beautiful products from Little Birdie Crafts and this time there are flowers – lots of them, stamps, stencils, Pearl Drops, Crystal Drops, Chipboard and more.

This past Sunday was Mother’s Day and I have created a layout in honour of my Mum – I have recently traveled back to my Homeland, New Zealand for her 80th birthday and wanted to honour her in this way.

Cut teal cardstock to 5″ x 7″ and line with slightly larger white card stock.  Tear a strip of floral patterned paper from the Aqua Medley and later onto slightly larger white card stock, also tearing the edge.

Trim your photo and glue to the back of the Crowning Glory Chipboard.  Cut the Chipboard words from their frames and fussy cut/hand-cut  the Hydrangea using scissors.

NOTE: Cutting  embellishments from the patterned paper gives perfectly co-ordinating embellishments.

Adhere the black and white photo to the  right side of the layered teal card stock; adhere the  Crowning Glory Chipboard framed photo to the left, slightly overlapping onto the larger photo.  Tear floral patterned paper into a strip and adhere onto torn white card stock, ensuring the torn white edge is showing.  Adhere photo section onto the strip of patterned paper using double sided tape; and the letters from the Glitter Fun .  Adhere both pieces onto white card stock 12″ x 12″.

Add a strip of chequered Washi Tape to the top right corner of the layout followed by a strip of patterned paper.  Fussycut/hand-cut using scissors a  butterfly from the patterned paper and adhere to a larger pre-cut blue butterfly.  Glue a Beaded Micro  Petals in the centre of the butterfly.  Glue the Blessed Chipboard sentiment across the washi tape.

NOTE: If you do not have enough patterned paper to layered under the washi tape, join smaller pieces together – it will not be noticed under the sentiment.

Glue the Hydrangea to the top left of the framed photo and the LOVE Chipboard to the lower left portion of the larger photo,  Place the flowers around the bottom left corner of the photos and once you are satisfied with their placement, adhere using glue.

Glue the Flowery Arched Window to the left of the layered photos – removing the pink flower.  Fussycut/hand-cut using scissors the bird and flowers image and pop up the bird and flowers onto the window frame and randomly add Beaded Micro  Petals.

Add a Doily from the  Aqua Medley 12″x12″ behind the top corner of the black and white photo and a hand-cut flourish from the patterned paper to the left, also adding a Beaded Micro  Petals to the centre of the flourish.

Note: Pop up some embellishments to add not only dimension but also more interest.

Stamp the images from the Postal Special clear stamps using blue ink, onto both white and teal cardstock.  Fussy cut/hand-cut using scissors the postmarks of choice and adhere under the floral frame around the photos and to the lower right corner of the page, popping up the smaller postmark using foam tape.

NOTE: Stamping on layouts adds to a ‘Collage’ feel and gives a unique look.

Randomly add script to the layout using the Script Stencil and blue ink; sponge around the edges of the layout using blue ink and a sponge dauber.  Randomly add Pearl Drops – Jade Isle onto the layout and glue Crystal Drops to the flowers
