My card for you today features Lawn Fawn's Magic Iris die along with the Magic Iris Birdhouse add-on.
For this card, I started with an A2 sized top fold card base using Neenah Classic Crest 110lb heavy weight smooth white cardstock. I then die cut a rectangle using red cardstock and the largest die in the MFT - A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX die set.
I die cut the birdhouse and the sausage pieces for the Magic Iris using Lawn Fawn's Wood Grain cardstock in white. Then I die cut the rest of the pieces for the Magic Iris using the same Neenah Classic Crest heavy weight cardstock.
I die cut the other pieces of the birdhouse using red cardstock (which was a cheap lightweight cardstock from Michaels). I die cut the bird that comes with the birdhouse set from smooth white cardstock. Then using Spellbinders dies from their winter birdhouse set, I die cut the greenery, bow and bell. Then I used MFT - Holly Berries die to create the holly bit on the tip of the bird house.
I traced the top of the bird house and then drew snow to cut out and add to the top of the birdhouse. I used Copic markers to color the greenery and bow in, the started gluing everything to the front of the card. I used the Magic Iris add-on to create my card front. I also added Glossy Accents and Nuvo Crystal Drops to my card front to snow to the birdhouse and shine to the Holly berries!
I followed the YouTube video on how to assemble the Magic Iris (it's been a while since I made one and I like to know 100% how to assemble things before I start). I added foam tape to the back of the card front and glued my Magic Iris assembly to the back.
Before I added the card front, I stamped a sentiment using Lawn Fawn's Magical Holiday Messages and white embossing powder on red cardstock, then I added the card front to it, so that when you pulled down the arm, the Magic Iris opens so show the message!I love using the Magic Iris die set, I really need to use it more often because how fun is it to pull the handle and open a special message or image?!
Thank you so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting.
