BIRDCAGE CARD THE CUTTLEBUGSPOT
Hope you are all well. I'm on a week's holiday from work this week yipee!
This week over at the Cuttlebugspot Nilda asked us to do a project which included a bird in it.
I've always wanted to try a sliceform card and found this fab SVG file of a sliceform birdcage for sale at Paperthreads.com designed by Jennibeancrafts a wonderfully talented designer!
For those that are not familiar with an SVG file it's a file can be cut with your Cricut and SCAL (Sure Cutsalot) software.
I cut it in white cardstock and there was even a step by step video on you tube on how to put it together! I cut the central panel twice more in gold mirricard and just used the 2 gold birds to go on the front and back of the original bird cut in white. The gold birds have been cuttled with Swiss Dots CB folder. I also cuttled some of the cage with the bark effect CB folder, tied some gold ribbon to the top and some little pearls on the cage door. I will be adding a tag so this can be used as a greeting card as it amazingly folds flat to go in an envelope (see last photo)!
Please come over and play at the Cuttlebugspot this week, there is a wonderful wonderful prize for the winner which has been so generously given by my DT sister Margie, of a Home Decor Cricut Cartridge!!!!
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful week everyone and to my US blogging friends have a great Labor Day!
