Birdcage Shaped Card

Birdcage Fold-it Card

Hello!

Today on my blog, I’m sharing a card that I made using the Birdcage Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life. It can make a birdcage shaped A2 size card. You can also use it to put on the front of a card or even put it on a scrapbook page. This die set includes the die to make the birdcage and a branch for a bird to stand on. For this card, I incorporated dies from other sets including the flowers, sentiment, swirls, and leaves.

To see a tutorial of how I made this card, watch my YouTube video here —

Supplies:

  1. Birdcage Fold-it
  2. Ink – Pixie, Grape, Ocean, Seaglass, Pool, Kiwi
  3. Cardstock: Powdered Sugar, Pixie, Grape, Green Apple 
  4. Dragonfly and Flower A2 Card Die Set (flowers and sentiment)
  5. Flower, Vine, and Grid and A2 Card Base Die Set (vines)
  6. Swirl A2 Card Base Die Set (swirl)
  7. Art Glitter Glue
