Hangin' around to say thank you
tips. 1) This card is a lot easier to create than it looks. The stand to the bird cage appears to be connected to the vine but the truth is I was a bit off when I stamped it, even with clear mount stamps. The bow hides this imperfection perfectly! 2) I used the white gel pen to put a dot in the center of each of my flowers but you can substitute that for a rhinestone or pearl jewel. 3) The punch used for the words and the color behind it are the same punch; the small oval. I cut a second one in Pool Party and cut it in half and mounted it off center to the words. This is a great tip if you want to double mount a stamp image or sentiment and you don't have a punch in a larger size.
