Crafty with Caly: Love Birds

Hi friends! Happy Sunday! We hope your 2021 has started off wonderfully so far! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Caly Person in the first edition of Crafty with Caly for 2021! Be sure to watch the video for more information and enjoy!

Hello, Friends! I’m sharing a shaker card using in-lay techniques with die-cut images today.  The focus of my card is the Love Birds and I made it more interest by creating a shaker window framed with the Etched Eucalyptus Wreath.

I created my shaker window first by die-cutting the Etched Eucalyptus Wreath over a white panel and attaching acetate to the die-cut window.  I in-lay the die-cut wreath back in over the acetate once it’s adhered in place. 

Be sure to watch the video to see how I create this card!

Next, I die-cut the Love Birds die.  Before lifting my die from the cutting plate, I popped all the pieces out – keeping them in their place on the cutting plate so that I can use Glad Press’n Seal to hold all the pieces together.  I flipped it over and adhered the backside with office tape, pulled back the Press’n Seal and colored the front of the die-cut image with Copic markers.  This will make more sense if you watch the video above.

After coloring, I die-cut the Love Bird die 3 more times in white and adhered them together.  I adhered this stacked image over my colored one to give it lots of dimension.

Copics:

Pinks:  R81, R85

Teals:  BG11, BG34

Peach:  YR0000, YR00

Yellow:  Y15

Browns:  E31, E35

Greens:  G21, YG09

Black:  110

To finish, I ink-blended some Mermaid Lagoon ink over the center of a cardbase to add color to my shaker window.  I added sequins to my cardbase and sealed my shaker panel using two layers of foam adhesive to give my sequins lots of room to move around.

I hope you enjoyed this project!  Thanks so much for joining me today! ~Caly

Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Caly for being our guest!

  1. What a simple but elegant card. I love this die. Your coloring technique was very informative and think I’ll give that one a try. Loved the colors, also. This die seems like it would make a great wedding card.

  2. Thank you so much, Caly!! What a beautiful card :o)
    Like the way you coloured it instead of cutting out lots of paper.
