Birdcage kind of Love

I think today's card could be used for a couple of occasions such as bridal shower, anniversary, thank you and maybe even a birthday. The shaped card base is from Michael's and the patterned paper in black is by DCWV. The white cardstock is by Neenah and the black by Recollections.

The die cuts are the negative of yesterdays card which you can see just below this post. The frame has another layer that I cut out in white however I didn't end up using the white on yesterdays card. I took the inside piece of cardstock and laid on top of it a netting from some fruit. I then sprayed it with Glimmer Mist and a touch of Smooch spritz. The Glimmer Mist is by Tattered Angels and the Smooch is by Clearsnap. On the die cuts is a bird cage sticker by My Mind's Eye with a rub-on by DCWV for the chain.

I stamped the corners with a rubber stamp by Deep Red Stamps. You can find Deep Red Stamps HERE or HERE. I heat embossed them using ink by Versa Mark and embossing powder by Stampin Up. You can find that flourish stamp set HERE or HERE.

To finish my card I placed a rub-on sentiment by Kaiser Craft over the embossed stamp area. I wasn't sure it would work but was willing to try and it worked great. Those rub-ons are good quality.

Thanks for stopping by.
