Cricut birdcage thank you card.

Cricut birdcage thank you card

Hello, friends!

Today is Monday, so I have another Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge. This week, the design team was asked to make something with a birdcage. When I was searching through Design Space for a birdcage, I came across this one. The cut is from Car Decals and I think it is pretty darn cute. 

The sentiment is stamped in versa mark and then heat embossed with silver embossing powder. Then, I took some pale pink ink and lightly sponged some color behind the sentiment. It makes it pop and softens it up a bit. 

The stamp set I used is one you can get for FREE with an order over $150! In fact, any order over $150, gets three exclusive stamp sets for FREE! However, this stamp set goes away forever at the end of the month. If you are interested, be sure to let me know! This stamp set covers all of those thank you cards!

Here are the stamp sets you will get for FREE!

variety of thanks
a thing well done

This card is gorgeous! I love it and the birdcage and the colors! It's great. Did you make the background paper with stamping or is it available? What color is the ribbon? It looks more peach than pink. So pretty!!
