Picked up packet of pretty note cards a while back. I think they were from the Michael's clearance bins as they were only 25 cents for 6. Soon as I saw them, I wanted to fussy cut the birdcage and frame!
I got two cards from that packet of 6...I decoupaged 3 layers and like how it turned out. I used a pearl flourish over the strip of jute ribbon and decided I need to use them more often. I am always sure I will tangle them up as I lay them down and sure enough I did. I finally got it untangled and placed. lol
If you have any hints for easy placement of pearl flourishes, let me know. I have several of these flourishes and want to start using them.
I added a couple of pearlescent brown corner dies and a strip of matching paper on the left side and called it a day! For some reason, the brown strip on the left side is not showing clearly in the photo...the light is sort of bouncing off of it. It is there though and IRL the brown sides so look more balanced than they apper in this photo! I promise!
Here is another photo that shows the layers of the birdcage...
