I have my final installment of my birdcage files as promised, today I have the last birdcage shape along with a Cherry Blossom card with an oriental feel to hang the birdcage from. For those of you without digital cutting machines I have 4 digis for you today, 3 different birdcages on stands and one incorporating the cherry blossom to give you a similar effect to todays card.
I cut my card base in white card and added a layer of patterned paper around the border. I cut my branch in brown card then reduced the size of some of the blossoms to add to the tips of the branches and cut them in pink card. I pressed the middle of each flower blossom into a soft stamp pad (the soft side of a mouse mat would do the trick too) with an embossing stylus to add some shape then stuck down with little dabs of glue. I cut my cage, perch and bird from some pale brown card then shaded the bird and perch with copics to make them stand out poked a hole in the top then threaded and tied it to the branch with some thick cotton. When you stand the card up you get a great effect as the little birdcage spins around in the opening.

I’ve really enjoyed making my little collection of birdcages and associated parts, I just hope you like them too and have fun crafting with them :)
