Funkie Junkie Focus – Bird Notes Card Caddy

Hello there Funkie Junkie fans! Our new focus theme is "use your favorite Tim Holtz product". (Like I could choose just one thing – impossible!) Therefore I have used various Distress medias, stamps, dies and stencils to create a Card Caddy full of notecards.

Mixed media is the best! All the goodies play so nicely together…

I made a set of ten cards to fit into the Card Caddy holder.

Let's take a look at how I made them:

Step 1 – I created backgrounds to cut up into card fronts. First I used Distress Sprays to lay down some color onto cardstock.

I added a secondary layer of visual texture with stencils.

Step 2 – I chopped the pages up into card fronts before adding more stamping and texture. Meanwhile, I had also cut the card bases and mats (from Kraft Stock Sparkle Classic – it added some nice bling to the cards).

Step 3 – I set the card bases off to the side and continued on with adding more to the fronts. Stamped texture went on first. Using the set of Everyday Art Element Stencils and Distress Embossing Dabber, I then added Distress Glazed accents. 

I adhered the die cut Silhouette Birds and Small Talk sentiments, then did some additional stamped texture over everything.

Step 4 – The Card Caddy Die (currently 50% off!) is a cinch to put together. I cut the pieces out of Sizzix mat board and then inked them. The tabs fold on the score lines and I glued it all together with a strong, quick grab liquid glue. (Clothespins are great for holding the tabs in place while the glue is drying.)
