Mother's Day Birdcage Card

Today's card is for a Mom this upcoming Mother's Day. The birdcage and bird stamps along with the bird dies are by Prickley Pear. I stamped the birdcage onto white cardstock by Recollections with brown Stampin Up ink. I fussy cut it out and colored in the leaves to match my paper with Stampin Up watercolor pencils. I then punched a whole in the top of the birdcage to set an eyelet with my Crop-o-dile. I ran this string (for lack of a better word) through the top and adhered it to the back of the patterned paper. The "string" is a find from my MIL's craft stuff when she went into a nursing home. The birds are tricky but I found that die cutting them first and then stamping the image was easier then vice versa. I cut out a ton of birds and then stamped them with different Stampin Up inks. I adhered the wings to the appropriate bird before adding them to my patterned paper. The sentiment stamp is a $1 aisle find from Michael's by Studio G and the patterned paper is by Crate Papers.






Thanks for looking.

  7. Lovely card! I too find that sometimes it is easier to die cut then stamp, especially with polymer stamps. Thank you for playing along at RRBC!
