Birdcage Card

I made this card the other weekend while at a crop. I made two cards, that way I could keep one and give one away. I gave my mom a copy of this card for Mother's Day. She loved it of course.

The birdcage, eggs and text are from the stamp set Nature Walk (Stampin' Up!),
 The bird inside the cage is from the stamp set Vintage Birdcages (TPC Studio),
The dots on the base of the card are from Boutique Borders (Close To My Heart),
And the frame is the die Top Note (Stampin' Up!).
For a dimensional look, I cut out the eggs and birdcage, and placed them on the card with foam squares.

Here's a close-up  of the birdcage and eggs. I colored in the bird and eggs with Copic markers, but unfortunately did not write down the colors I used. I tied some Waxy Flax around the frame because every card needs ribbon or some sort of fiber ;-)

Here you can kinda see how I popped the birdcage and eggs. I stamped the images on the card, and then stamped them again on some scrap card stock, cut them out, and placed them on the card with foam squares.
I'll share the other cards I made in future posts. And one of these days when I straighten up my craftroom, I will post pictures of my creative space. In fact, by putting that out there in cyberspace, maybe it will help me to clean my room!



  1. LOL! It's still a really cute card, even though I commented on it on your previous post ;)

  2. Hehehe. Lara! You know that I can't help and think of you every time I see bird, real or not. You have the birds and Debbie B. has Martha you know who.


I love receiving and reading your comments...
