I have a quick card to show you...well, quick for you! I designed the birdcage on the card myself with the Silhouette software. I spent so long designing it, my husband was muttering something about my mistress...and what do you call the male equivalent of a mistress....poor guy :). Then I used the Silhouette software to design the card...it took me forever, but once everything was cut out, it went together super fast. Wow! I am really liking this machine and software!
Does the base card look familiar? It should! I turned the card from the last post on it's side to accommodate the birdcage. Take a quick look here. The birdcage is my design, sprayed with Glimmer Mist. The bird image is from the Silhouette library, an Echo Park design that I welded to a small rectangle to get the "perch" look. I sprayed that image with Glimmer Mist(s) also. I glued the "hello" to the banner and then glittered it to soften the lines just a little. The little bow-tie is actually the cut out from the card, and the flower is made from a Silhouette library file that has a page full of flowers to cut out at once (45 nesting flowers by Valerie Foster). I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist and added a jewel in the center. The paper is My Mind's Eye II.
It needs something more, don't you think? I will have to think about it for a couple days. Got any ideas?
