I’m still working on the Everyday Enchantment DSP that I have loved and now chopped.  I chopped it in 5-1/4” strips then cut the strips into 4” pieces.  Kept the leftover strips too.  I have them stored in a Full Wide Stamp case. Kylie Bertucci has given us permission to Love It Chop It!

Use a full panel from your Love It Chop It pile (5-1/4” x 4”).  Sponge edges with Soft Suede ink.  Adhere to a Soft Suede card.  Set aside.

Cut vellum 6” x 3-1/4”.  Rub one end with the embossing buddy.  Stamp the crosshatch from the Best Birds stamp set with Versamark.  Copper emboss.  Die cut the cross hatch with a circle (6) and die cut a scallop circle (F) from the other edge.  Adhere together with glue dots in the center.  Set aside.

Die cut one large and one small bird from Soft Suede cardstock with the Birds and Blooms dies.  Keep the pieces in tack with the birds.  Hold together with scotch tape.  Set aside. 

Die cut both birds again from Calypso Coral cardstock.  Remove the beaks and feet from the Calypso Coral birds. 

Color Calypso Coral birds with Wink of Stella then adhere to the Soft Suede birds.  Add dimensionals and set aside.

Its easy to have a long narrow stamp ‘go out of shape’ when sticking it to the Stamparatus.  Here is how to align your stamp with a die: lay Very Vanilla 4-1/4” x 2” cardstock on the Stamparatus.  Rub with the embossing buddy.  Lay the die cut side up on the cardstock. 

Set the stamp in the die – make sure it fits properly.  Pick the stamp with the other plate.  Remove the die and stamp the branch from the Best Birds stamp set with Versamark.  Copper emboss. 

Die cut with the Birds and Blooms dies.  You will notice the stamped image fits perfectly inside the die.

Color the branch with Crumb Cake and Old Olive markers.  Set aside.

Cut lace 4” long.  Glue dot about 1” from the bottom of the DSP.  Cut Burlap ribbon 4” and adhere just above the lace.  Set aside.

Wrap Copper Metallic thread around 3 fingers three times.  Tape to the card front to suit the vellum circle.

Tuck the vellum circle under the Burlap ribbon a bit.  Add glue dots to the bottom leaves and dimensionals to each end of the branch.  Add to card front.

Place birds in place.

Cut Calypso Coral ribbon 10” long.  Make a double bow using Wayne’s wooden bow maker.  Adhere to the card front with mini glue dots. Trim.

Stamp a phrase and some images to the inside of the card.  Decorate the envelope.
