I ended up using two diagonals: eggs, die cut, pattern paper AND Easter, die cut, baby animals. One of my favorite things is to create interactive cards, and have been doing it for years, even before cool dies and online instructions are around. However this time the process went much quicker with the use of a set of Lawn Fawn dies called Magic Picture Changer. This is the closed position:
I followed the directions from the Lawn Fawn assembly video.
- All my images are from the Chirpy Chirp Chirp set (2/2016) and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black then colored with Chameleon pens.
- To layer the images they were first stamped on Post-It notes and fussy cut to create mini masks.
- I used Chameleon NU4 Caramel, YO2 Mellow Yellow, OR4 Seville Orange, PK3 Bubble Gum, and WG3 Warm Gray. (One of my goals during the social distancing time is to actually sit down and go through the instructions videos about color with Chameleons so I can become a better colorist!)
- The grass which is peaking through the frame is Memento Pear Tart.
- With the masks still in place the sky is sponged in with an Ink Dauber and Memento Summer Sky.
- The pattern paper is from a very old set of Provocraft papers that I've had for 20 years! Still have a selection and am glad to see them make an appearance in my crafting.
This is the card in the open position. What shows up during the transition is the word: Translation: happy easter.
