Birdcage Birthday

This card was a lot of fun to make. I got to use a fabulous stamp set and my favourite colour. The birdcages and birds were stamped from a variety of colours and then I cut them out with craft scissors. I used Bashful Blue ink and a blender pen to add depth to the birdcages. The white background was embossed with the square lattice textured impressions folder in order to add some interest. I arranged the birdcages in a balanced manner and added the birds to add colour.
The Fun Stuff:
1. Stamps – Aviary, Teeny Tiny Wishes
2. Ink – Soft Suede, Basic Grey, Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade
3. Paper – Concord Crush DSP, Whisper White, Concord Crush, and Soft Suede cardstock
4. Accessories – Word Window Punch, Neutrals Brads, Pearls, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Square Lattice Textured Impessions Folder.
