I had been thinking about this card for a few days and decided that today I would try out the idea. As PP is asking for clean and simple I figured it would work for their challenge. Stamp set is one I’ve had for a long time (gift certificate buy) and not really used much, I decided it was time I worked with it. Got it from Inspired by Stamping and it is called Sweet Aviary. The sentiment comes from a GKD set called Snow birds. The first thing I did was to dry emboss the hexagon frame which is from Crafters Companion. It is a fairly heavy thick die and each time I passed it through it either ripped the cs or creased it in places. In the end I took the best one and hand cut the shape out so I could use it cleanly. Before I did that I stamped the bird more or less in the center added some red glitter to it with a pen and when dry stamped the cage on top. Added some glitter to the cage with a Sakura gelly roll pen and then added the red sequins. I am completely out of tiny red gems so note to self is buy more. Because the glue came through the hole and I didn’t like it, I used a red perler pen and added a dot to each center. I am very happy with the result considering the initial challenge of getting the hexagon the way I envisioned.
