Bird Cage Plaque

Good Morning Crafters
Another fabulous project from Tracey to share with you today.
Check out the stockist locator on the home page of the Personal Impressions website for a stockist near your home!
You will require the following for this project:
Sweet Dixie – Bird Cage Cutting Die – Includes 2 birds
Sweet Dixie – A4 Card stock – Chocolate
Sweet Dixie – A4 Card Stock – Latte
Kaiser Crafts – Vintage Timeless 6 ½ “ Paper Pad
Sweet Dixie – Clear Stamps – Daisy and Bottles
Memento Ink Pads
Light Brown satin ribbon
Chipboard Plaque
Double Sided Tape
Promarker Pen Burnt Sienna & Gold marker pen
Wooden Woods
Matt Gold Card Stock
All available from all good craft stores
Step 1
To start my plaque I took the matt gold card stock and using the Bird Cage Cutting die I cut the cage and pressed the excess pieces out of it.

Step 2
Then using some off cuts of Chocolate Brown Card stock and used the bird cutting dies and cut them out.
Step 3
This photo shows the elements needed to make the plaque base design
Step 4
Firstly I covered the chipboard plaque with the Latte Card stock.
Using the Kaiser Crafts Vintage Timeless paper pad I chose 2 sheets to use and trimmed and die cut a shape out to use as layering on the plaque.
Step 5
I then tied the light brown satin ribbon through the holes and then formed a bow at its hanging point.

Step 6
Now I have glued the Bird cage and bird die cuts into place on the layered plaque
Step 7
I decided to distress the edges of the plaque at this point just to add to the effect, which I have just done with a cosmetic sponge and some Memento ink.
Step 8
I have taken some wooden word embellishments for this project and have decided to colour them to match the design, I simply just used my marker pens to colour the top of the words and glued them in place on the plaque.

Step 9
To finish the plaque I felt it needed something else so I used my favourite Sweet Dixie Stamp set called Daisy and Bottles – I stamped the 2 larger daisies on to some of the off cut Latte card stock in Memento Brown ink and then fussy cut them out and glued them in place on the plaque to add the final touch.

All finished and ready to give to that special friend for them to hang up with pride of place.
