Birdcage Picture


Here I am back with my second post today. Please scroll down for a GDT post at In the Pink.

It is time for another anything goes with ribbon challenge at Crafty Ribbons and I decided to make a picture for my DT make. I bought some 12 x 12 chipboard and hubby cut it down to 6 x 6 for me with a Stanley knife, very sensibly wearing a heavy duty glove. I then used a Go Kreate die. The paper and stamps are Prima Fairy Belle which were free with a magazine. I only bought the mag for the paper and stamp, can't resist a birdcage. I stamped the birdcage and a couple of birds with Memento Rich Cocoa and used DI Frayed Burlap around the edges. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons of course and once I had secured it I die cut some Core'dinations for the back so it looks nice and neat.

The dies are all Memory Box. I bought the tiny bird die on holiday and when I opened it thought they were a bit small but I have used it several times already. The roses and butterfly are also Prima and the pearls are from The Hobby House. I shall be making a few more of these to sell.
