The base for this folded card was made with a Sizzix die that I discovered in a clearance bin at HM Ben Franklin Crafts in Hilo....so many amazing finds there. Sizzix makes a lot of folding card dies so I just had to find one that would accommodate the cranes in the circle. Using KaiserCraft printed card stock from a 6-1/2" square pack, I die cut the red inner panels. After applying them to the black card base with double stick tape (Heiko), I decided that the card looked like an oriental folding screen.
By adding the KaiserCraft wooden pieces (painted with cream colored acrylic) to the corners of the cards, I thought that it looked even more like a folding screen...yay! The double crane circle was stamped on white marking pen paper and heat embossed with NUVO glitter noir powder before die cutting with a KaiserCraft die. Embossing the design with powder made it easy to color in the design with gold and silver Wink of Stella markers and a red color pencil. After the colored, stamped crane image and sentiment die cuts (from the KaiserCraft paper pad) were added to the folded card...Voila! It was done! Be sure to visit HM Ben Franklin Crafts to see the new line of KaiserCraft paper products. I know you'll want some when you think of all the wonderful things you will be able to create. Happy Shopping!
