Happy Leap Day!! I hope everyone is well.
I am so proud of my card today! It turned out so good and makes me smile every time I look at it.
The bird cage is cut out from the Cricut French Manor cartridge. I cut out the layers in 2 different shades of blue, and then staggered the layers just slightly so both showed through. I cut a small piece of chain and added it to the top of the cage with a couple brads. Then added some light blue stickles to the top layer.
Both frames are cut from the Lacy Labels cartridge. The purple layer on the large frame has been embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. It's a one sided piece of paper so the other side is white, which once the paper was embossed, the white popped through a little. I was going to ink some purple on top to cover that up, but I'm glad I didn't because I feel the little bits of white really brighten the card up.
I had some extra blue petals from my card yesterday so I made another blue flower. The purple flower petals are cut from the Wild Card cartridge, just cause that's the cartridge I have plugged into my jukebox that I know has a flower on it :) I inked the edges of the purple flower with purple to cover the white.
In the centers of the blue and purple flowers, I dotted some 3D paint and then poured on some of my new tiny beads to make a shimmery center.
I just love this card! Yeah, I make creations that just don't work...but it always feels so good when something turns out just perfect!
