Hello Ai fans !!
It’s Crystal here and today our challenge is to use the most awesome Chickens called Bird-Brains , I am going to use Birdie and egg carton #U1842 .
okay today we are going to think outside the box , as in Birdies legs will hang outside the box ..lol .. to do this you lay your die over the image and trace the die lightly with pencil and were the image hangs outside the frame you totally fussy cut that area , then set the die under legs but in top of area to be die cut ( legs will be on top of the die )
next I am going to use my Cricut and cut a sunburst layer for my card from the Close to my Heart Artbooking cartridge . this was cut at 7″ with real dial size off so when done to was 5 1/4″ by 6″ , when i took if off the sheet I loved the negative image it left behind so I am going to use it inside my card ( waste nothing , that is why we are called scrappy girls , we make art from scraps )
so what I did to get all those pieces in just the right space I laid down my cut out and used a two way glue pen to add glue to black spaces
put all the negative cut in the correct places
when done it looks as if it never came off my cutting mat
now remove the positive image or the image I intending on using on my card front , look how coll this looks , I add black stitch lines down the yellow rays
I stamped my sentiment on some pattern paper and cut it out with a circle die , this is the finished inside of my card
I know we are working backwards but this is how my mind works sometimes he he .. I just go with it
for the front I cut a lighter yellow to contrast with my sun ray layer and the embossed it with Swiss dot embossing folder , then I glued that down to my black card base then used glue dots to pop up my sun ray layer , then I added my image to the front and die cut some flowers and flourishes added a raffia bow , and I am done …
