Love is in Bloom
To see my post for My Time Made Easy please scroll down or click here.
Today's challenge at CropStop is to include a bird in your project. I love this paper from Graphic 45 which has a bird in the lower corner. I added another bird to my project and then added a birdcage and a ton of hand-made flowers & greenery! (the dies are listed at the bottom of my post)
Here are some close-ups of my card and all the lovely details!
I used foam squares to pop up the birdcage and some of the ivy. I used my Scissors to cut the foam squares down to size when needed. You can see a few of them in the image below - underneath the bars of the birdcage.
I used a craft molding mat and a flower making kit to give dimension and shape to my flowers and leaves.
I used Stickles and/or liquid pearls in the centers of the flowers.
Some 3-D goodness:
Thank you for coming by today! I appreciate each and every visit and I especially love receiving comments! I hope you will join us this week at CropStop and show us your projects using birds.
