Concord Crush Aviary

Good morning,

I thought I would share another of the cards I made last Sunday before I start on today's craft marathon, I was asked to make several cards for the same person, I always find this more challenging, so here is the first of a series of cards I made for Maddy who turned 18 on Friday!

I started by making the background paper, I stamped the various birdcages in different directions using my stamp-a-ma-jig to get them placed correctly, them I used my spritzing tool to give some texture (if you click on the photo you should be able to see this better) I sponged the edges before mounting onto Concord Crush CS, I used a piece of retired DSP for the stripe in the middle called Lap of Luxury (I'm trying to use up some of my beloved retired stack of DSP's!) I added three cages with birds for my focal point, popping up the central cage on dimensionals, I love the little owl, he's so sweet!!

I couldn't help myself, when I cut out the sentiment I had to add a couple of birdies here to.

Pop back tomorrow for the next instalment of last weekends crafty day, xx

Kelly, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I will check out Simply Stampin Challenge. This card is adorable and your background paper looks fantastic. :-)

I love this card! I never know what to do with this set. I think you've inspired me to dust it off!
