Hello Friends! I’m back, sharing a fun birthday card I created for 1) a birthday, and 2) a challenge issued by Stephanie Barnard of The Stamps of Life. If I post a card using the stamp set birdcage2stamp to their online gallery, I qualify for a chance to win a free stamp set! Free is good, so off I went to make a card…three hours later…
Yes, sometimes I get carried away in the process, but it’s so much fun!! Do you do that as well? Lose track of time while stamping? It sure does take away the angst of the work day!!
And up close of the bird cage. I actually used the Sizzix adhesive sheets along with the die to die cut 3 birdcages and then I layered them to create a bit more of a 3-D effect. It was easier to do than it sounds, lol. And aren’t the birdies adorable with their cut out heart wings??
I layered two different TSOL ribbons and tied them into a fun knot as an accent and then I heat embossed the birthday greeting in black embossing powder. I stamped and die cut two additional birdies to accent the greeting. And the little hearts…are they too precious?? I think I’ll be pulling those hearts out frequently to use on other cards!
So there you have it…I’m off to post my card to the on-line gallery…wish me luck on winning the free stamp set! And if you would like to participate as well, you can post to the gallery as well, please let me know if you do so I can pop over to see!
Wishing you joy and blessings!
