CHA-S 2013 ~ Bird Cage Card
Here is another card I created for Ranger using a few of the new Stickles released at CHA-S. It looks like this week on my blog it’s all about birds. I certainly didn’t intend it to be but it sure did happen. This all occasion card is created using the Tim Holtz Sizzix ~ Caged Bird die. I accented the cage and birds edges using Mercury Glass Stickles. The Petaloo Color Me flowers are painted with Perfect Pearls Powders ~ Confections Kit then the edge of each petal is accented with Ice Blue and Pink Taffeta Stickles. I really wish you could see how pretty these flowers look in person. The shimmer from the Perfect Pearls and the sparkle from the Stickles really makes the flowers shine.
To finish the card I placed several vintage leaves under the flowers, wrapped a seam binding bow around the card, cut a small strip of patterned paper using scallop scissors that of course I had to accent using Mercury Glass Stickles. Once the Stickles dried I attached the scallop strip to the top of the card.
Now I’m off to finish up editing “Delight In The Art of Collage” oh how I cannot wait for you all to see this book. I’m so proud of it!
