Classic images and an elegant appeal. That's the best way to describe this marvelous merging of techniques. Try this dynamic design for yourself with Bigz Bird #2 Die and the bonus Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (included with this Bigz Die from the Christmas Cardmaking collection).
Cut a piece of cardstock to size and fold to form card base. Cut a piece patterned paper to fit on the front of the card, ink edges and adhere in place. Apply brown chalk to the female (negative) side of the Flower #2 embossing folder, carefully place the cardstock inside the folder and emboss using your Big Shot, BIGkick or Vagabond machine. Remove the embossed paper and trim a strip to fit across the card front. Wrap a ribbon around the strip and tie in a bow; adhere in place. Embellish the bow with leaves die-cut from glitter paper and a decorative button. Print or stamp a sentiment on cardstock, trim to size, ink edges and adhere to the card front. Die-cut a Bird from cardstock, align the corresponding embossing folder over the shape and roll through the machine to emboss. Embellish with ink, glitter and half pearls to highlight the raised designs. Adhere to the card front.
