Week two of the Sizzix Triple PLay Blog Hop is here and I am so excited to share this project. Karen Burniston is a genius when is comes to 3D and pop-up elements - I am in awe of how her mind works and translates into paper crafting!
Now on to my project...
I had alot of ideas floating around in my head in reference to this cube and its applications, but when I thought of a baby block I knew I had to turn it into a birth announcement!
This Baby Block Birth Announcement is in honor of my Niece, Marlena Anne Wilson, born October 24th. We have already decided that she is going to be a girly girl so I used the Cabbage Rose and Vintage Patchwork papers from the Paper Girl line by The Girl's Paperie
I assembled the cube die and adhered the decorative papers with Continuous Glue Lines by Glue Dots - love this product for a nice, flat look with no peeling edges. I embellished with some silk seam binding that I dyed pink along with assorted ribbons, flowers and bling - all attached using Craft Glue Dots on a Roll. The glitter letters and Crystal Charm are Melissa Frances and I distressed all the papers with Clearsnap Color Box Fluid Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan.
