DazzleAEBlogHop-e1411954221978Hi! Welcome to the Add A Little Dazzle & Avery Elle blog hop! It’s a week long affair, full to the brim of craft metal and stampy goodness. Avery Elle are a manufacturer of ‘fun, fresh and modern’ designs & their Design Team & ours have combined to hopefully show you some of the things you can achieve when you combine stamps and metal!

For my project, I’ve combined two Avery Elle sets ‘#Smile’ & ‘Storybook’

Combining the two sets creates something a bit different. I’ve used the aluminium metal and embossed it with a Herringbone folder (XCut) which gives a lovely crisp texture to the metalAALD1When I was thinking about the design, the phrase ‘watch the birdie’ sprang to mind. This phrase became popular at photography sessions in early photographic history. If you look closely, on the next picture, you’ll see the bird is actually flying (via a piece of acetate!!) at the front of the camera. The ‘flash’ is one of the starbursts from the StoryBook set and the butterfly from the same set is in the middle of the multi layered acetate lens!!

AALD2I’ve also used some Avery Elle sequins which just add movement to the card.

Prize Alert!!

Be sure to leave a comment on the Avery Elle Blog, Add a Little Dazzle Blog, and each of the Design Team Member’s Blogs each day for a chance to win a prize pack from both companies! You must leave a comment on all blogs.

  • […] Keren Baker created this fun card.  She loves creating cards with intricate pieces and so this is completely her style.  You can’t see it in this card but the little bird pops out and the lens of the camera does, too. It’s really cool.  You can check out the close up on her blog. […]

    Very cool card. I’m glad I popped over to see the closeup. I had no idea that the camera aperture was 3D. Very cool.
