TUNNEL CARD - Birdhouse Village Card by Lynn Dionne

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!


Watch video tutorial here!!!


Today we will be creating a super fun tunnel style card! This card design will allow us to use layers of ovals to look inside the card to see our pretty birdhouses!

Let's grab our focal image from the brand new Ai Birdhouse Village Set (5739). This set is part of the Ai Watercolor Journal Series and includes this set of birdhouses and also includes some pretty little flowers which we will be using today.

Now we can stamp and color in our images. You will want to stamp several sets of the flowers! All of the coloring today will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Pale Rose, Lilac, Violet, Persian Green, Beige, Mid Brown, Lt Gray, Gray Brown.

Next we can die cut all of the oval openings in our patterned papers using the Ai Nested Oval Dies (5727). I'll be showing you some tips and tricks for die cutting the ovals in order to create this tunnel style card!

For patterned papers we will be using the brand new Ai Easter Journal Paper Pack (5742). We will grab the pretty pink striped paper and the lilac and pink polka dots!

For a bit of detail we will add a nice stitched border around our focal image which will show through to the front of the card!

To create the scalloped edge along the front of the card we will use the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543)...this set has lots of borders and fun dies for adding cute elements to your cards and journals!

Let's assemble the card and add a special sentiment to the inside and the outside of the card using a pretty blush pink embossing powder. These sentiments will come from the new sentiments sets called Ai Friend Set (5734) and the Ai Birthday Set (5735).

Thank you so much for joining me today!  Have a fun and crafty day!!!
