I think this is my favorite card so far. I really enjoyed watercoloring my birds and flowers! You might not be able to see it very well, but I have a thin white piece of card stock glued (under the birdcage where you can’t see it) which extends out to the right a bit, to support the circular feel I was going for.
Aren’t they precious? This one is a Birthday Card for my mom, soon to be 81 years young.
This card uses the paper from Heartfelt Creations Cascading petals – the “I Want it All” package included the die for the birdcage and the birds as well. using the outline die, I created the shaped card, putting fold about one inch from the tops of the cage. I the. Cut another of the outline, and put the birdcage on top of it. Then the circle was placed beneath that piece, and the top of the card, to hide it a bit. Then I colored my birds and the flowers, added some dimensional wisteria and more leaves to round it out (pun intended, lol!). You will note, I avoided adding a ribbon or bow – very difficult for me, almost like asking me not to add flowers or glitter!!
The inside has light blue paper with a sticker sentiment.
