Cloisonne' Origami Cranes

My card's finished, folded size is 6" X 6" and the background is batik fabric. I attached it to the cardstock with fusible webbing (a thin webbing of iron-on glue which can be purchased online or at a fabric store) by first ironing the webbing to the fabric and then ironing the fabric onto the cardstock.

The threads which are wrapped around the background is metallic sewing thread. I didn't want to cover up too much of the fabric, so I thought it was a good choice for adding some interest without covering up the pattern on the fabric.

I poked some holes in the blue layer and then mounted all of that onto the base cardstock. The Michael Strong Cloisonne' Cranes were stamped with VersaMark ink onto Kraft cardstock, then embossed with Pearlescent Garnet colored embossing powder. I cut them out and attached them to the card with double-sided mounting foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
