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!
