Every once in a while I create a card that I totally love and this happens to be one of them. I love all the dies you can purchase from Joan's Gardens. The birdcage is one of the new Poppy Stamps dies that she now has. It is called "Carousel Bird Cage" (800) and I know you will love it. The cute bird is the Memory Box "Perched Reed Bird (98160) and the pretty flourish above the bird cage is the Memory Box "Fauntleroy Crest" (98222). All these dies go together so well. The Cheery Lynn "Tropical Flourish" (B127) is on the left side of the cage and the flowers were created with the new Cheery Lynn "Cuties 2" (B150) and "Miniature Rose" (B152) dies. I love how easy it is to create beautiful flowers with these Cheery Lynn dies.
The design paper is from the Basic Grey "Sweet Threads" paper pad. The top two-thirds of it was embossed using the Sizzix "Ornate Swirls" (657138) embossing folder. Doesn't that make a beautiful background for the bird cage! All the pieces were die cut and attached to the card using liquid glue. The bird was colored by using sponge daubers. Kaiser Craft Pearls were added to the birdcage and in the center of the white flowers. The sentiment is from the JustRite "Birthday Sentiments" stamp set.
All the products used on this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens. She is taking pre-orders for the Carousel Bird Cage and the Fauntleroy Crest. You will not be charged for pre-ordered products until they are shipped to you.
