I used the images from the new Aviary stamp set by Stampin’ Up! I thought these birds would enjoy a classy gilded silver bird cage so I stamped the cage and stand image with VersaMark and applied the silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder . Once heated with the heat gun it looks like real metal.
Step 1. Cut the Tempting Turquoise card stock to the size stated above for the base. Punch the front bottom edge with the Eyelet Border punch. Apply SNAIL adhesive in a line above the punched edge. Apply the satin ribbon onto the adhesive, pleating across the card width. Sew a basic running stitch through the center of the ribbon with a sewing machine. In the sample below I used turquoise thread to compliment the Tempting Turquoise.
Step 2. Thread a small thin strip of Whisper White card stock through the button holes. Fold the ends over onto the back and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot. Adhere another glue dot over the previous one and apply to the left edge of the card. Add two more buttons using the same process alternating colors.
Step 3. Stamp the bird image onto Whisper White using Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink for the body and Basic Black for the legs. Stampin’ Write Markers are perfect for this application because you can add more than one color to the stamp and stamp once for a completed image. I stamped another bird at the bottom using Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink repeating the same process. Stamp the cage (over the Rich Razzleberry bird) and also bird cage stand image with VersaMark ink. Sprinkle Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the wet images, tap off the excess and heat with a heat gun. A perfect gilded cage! I rounded all four corners with the Corner Punch and used a Rich Razzleberry card stock mat cut slightly larger than the image card stock. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to a llcorners and adhere to the card front.
Step 4. Cut a piece of Presto Patterns Specialty paper at 4-1/4″ x 5″. Sponge Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink onto the paper leaving some areas lighter than others for dimension. Using a soft cloth or paper towel, lightly rub off any excess ink from the pre-embossed pattern. Adhere to the back of the card front (lining up with the side edges and fold) with SNAIL adhesive.
Step 5. Stamp the sentiment with Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock and adhere to the inside of the card with SNAIL adhesive. This sentiment is from the stamp set Occasional Quotes Hostess Level 3.
