I finally took some pictures, so I'd like to share my second card made using Songbird. I have really enjoyed making cards from this cartridge, to my great surprise!
For the base, I used a scalloped rectangle. I welded the shape in the middle, using my Gypsy, to create the frame. I added the frame using foam tape to make it stand out a little. I cut the base at 4.5" and the birdcage was cut at 2.75". I cut the birdcage out in ivory and in the reddish dot paper, then cut out the bird and added him, since this cart doesn't have layers.
I used the hide/contour feature on my Gypsy to hide the letter on the flowers and cut a total of 9, in different sizes, each 1/4" smaller than the previous. I inked the edges and crinkled them a bit before adding a brad for the center.
Here's the second card I made using the same pieces. I just made it horizontal instead of vertical and changed the sentiment. As I mentioned before, I try to always make 2 cards - one to give and one to keep - so I always have cards on hand.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous Tuesday.
