a blog about my handmade cards and paper-crafts

Bird-Cage Card

No Gravatar

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!
