Birdie in the Green

Welcome to Paper Crafting 101 Blog!

This project is inspired by the color GREEN!!

The colors consist of Close To My Heart colors New England Ivy, Sweet Leaf and Topiary.

Using the Cricut Artiste cartridge, I cut out the Milk Carton using Topiary Cardstock (Fit to Page).  Using Colonial White cardstock, I cut the roof at 3.25 by 6.25.  Using the wood grain embossing folder, I used New England Ivy pigment ink and inked the embossing folder before embossing.  I then selected hearts (standard and scalloped) from Artiste cartridge and sized to .50.  I colored hemp cord in New England Ivy and attached the Sweet Leaf stamped hearts to the hemp cord and added Artisan studs between each heart.  I attached the heart pendant with 2 mini clothes pins.    For the opening, I cut two oval shapes at 1.75" and 2".  Then I used hemp and glued around ovals.  I added a single heart with an Artisan stud.  I then used a swag wood decal for perch.  I cut a shape for the February Stamp of the Month (2.50 x 2.50).  I used gold embossing powder and heat embossed on pre-cut shape.

Artisan Studs, Wood decals and mini clothes pins will be available February 1st!!

So thank you for sharing the fun I had with 3 shades of green!

What a sweet project! I love seeing all the 3D projects from the Artiste cartridge "in the flesh". The details, like the flourish perch, and heart-strung clothes-line are great. Thanks for joining the "go green" challenge at Color My Heart this week.

Great job! The Cricut Artiste makes fabulous milk cartons to show case your wonderful job and the gold embossing adds a wonderful rich tone and feel to the three shades of green. Thanks for the entry at Color my Heart challenge.
