Stampin' Up! Aviary CAS Greeting Card

The design for this Stampin’ Up! Aviary greeting card came to me when I woke up this morning!  I went straight to my office and here it is – just for you!!!  I fell in love with this set from the very beginning. I love the interesting cages, and especially the adorable birds!

Obviously, this is a very clean and simple card.  Just a couple of interesting elements make it work.  To create the top to hang the cage, I die-cut the Summer Smooches DSP for the top with ths second largest Label Collection Framelit.

I punched a hole in the cage ring and in the bottom of the topper. The Linen Thread is then laced through these holes.  I attached the topper with SNAIL adhesive and the cage was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the coral bird was added with a Glue Dot.

Have a fabulous weekend and I hope you enjoyed this simple aviary greeting card.
