Sizzix Tim Holtz Bird Cage Die....
Well finally I have made a card with this die. I ordered it ages ago and it came about a month ago when life was a little hectic, so didn't use it. I cut it out as I always do that with new dies, and I admired the die cuts.
The die is just beautiful and I love the way Sizzix dies cut so cleanly every time. I just need a money tree in the backyard..... yeah right, stop dreaming and get on with it I say.
I decided to make a Christmas Card with it as the silver cage goes so well with burgundy and forest green. I put an impression on the cage with a fiskars texture plate. I love using plates and folders. Cut some branches and flowers and molded the cage to appear rounded. Pearl centres for the flowers and a hook and bow at the top of the cage.
And birdie was inked with a swirl stamp and he is holding the sentiment in his beak..... I have seen a bird holding ribbon sentiments before, cannot remember where.
