Botanical theme with birdcage

Posted by Marie Smith on

Although I love the design on the Spellbinders die, I have seldom used it - maybe because it is in a size that makes for a card that is too large to my personal liking for rectangular cards. When trimming it down to fit behind a mat that comfortably sits on a 15cm square card, I could find a perfect 'flow' for the flourish from the flowers in the corner.

The flowers are handmade, cut from peach metallic shimmer cardstock, inked on the edges with grapefruit ink.

The frame was cut using two sizes Tattered Lace decorative edge dies.

The birdcage was heat-embossed in silver on curious metal silver ice (white shimmer) cardstock 300g, using a stamp from an Apple Blossom set, Birds and bees.

The teal background is paper from the Lady Pattern paper range.
