Here is another card I made for client I sold a home to a few weeks ago. I used my Cricut Straight from the Nest cartridge to cut out the delicate birdcage layers and bird, and the Just Because cards cartridge to cut out the tag layers.
I have been drooling over the We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy tools since November and finally bought a few pieces so I could easily make some stitches. It’s a tool that punctures holes into the card in a certain pattern – and there are several different patterns – for hand-stitching. I love the look of stitched or sewn cards, so it was fun to make the bird-cage chain with embroidery floss and my new Sew Easy tool.
I nipped the edges on the card with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper and made the paper look a little aged with some ink and a dauber. I tapped the dauber onto the ink pad and applied the ink to the edges of the card.
When I looked at the photo for this blog post, I thought I had put a googly eye on the bird, but nope – it’s a light blue gem. 🙂
Thank you for reading my blog post!
