Let me walk you through the steps of creating this page.
Color the page with Gelatos colors from the Designing with Gelatos® Kit. Blend colors with gesso.
Attach diecut bird to page with gel medium.
Color the floral foam stamp from the kit and mist it with water. stamp on the page.
Color rubber stamps with Gelatos colors and stamp on the page.
Apply Whipped Spackle through Dots stencil as shown. Let dry.
Cut chosen text from old book paper. attach to page with gel medium.
Cut off a small section of bubblegum Gelatos into the mister included in the kit. Crush it with the back of the paint brush. Add water. Shake to mix. Mist the section of the page above the bird. let some wet mist drip down the page.
Embellish the bird by adding small dots along the outline of the bird to finish the page.
Diecut the various embellishing elements using the same Sizzix Sandwich described above. Here, as you can see, I used up a lot of small scraps. The powerful magnets of the Magnetic Platform help secure even the smallest paper scraps and dies allowing you to get several clean cuts with a single pass through the machine.
Here are all the diecut pieces. To make the card, mountain fold the two crease lines farthest away from the Dresser feet. Mountain fold the crease closest to the feet and valley fold the crease just above it.
Layer the embellishments as you like. I used brads to imitate drawer pulls.
Start assembling the card. Use foam tape or pop dots for a dimensional look.
Here's my card after assembly. You can arrange the pieces any way you like. I doodled some details on the bear.
I ended up doodling on every piece and realized that if you are planning to doodle on your embellishments, it would be easier to do so before you add the embellishments to the card.
Hope you enjoyed this card and the tutorial. With so many possibilities, this Baby Dresser die set is going to be a favorite of my for a long time to come!
