Bits and Pieces

Hello my crafting friends, hope today finds you all safe and well? I was looking through my mountains of craft material the other day and found lots of bits and pieces I had forgotten I had!!! So I thought I would make a dainty card out of some of the items, these included the little square sheets of patterned paper.

I found a pack of recycled 6X4" White cards along with some different shades of Blue paper, the whole pack was recycled paper. The cards were already scored so I just matted it up with some teal card and matted the two small squares of paper with White card before placing on top as seen. Some of these squares were foiled, some patterned and a couple embossed.

I added the two die cuts, made using White card, one of these I cut in half and placed either side of the bottom square. I added PVA Glue dots on certain areas of the die cuts in Teal.

I added a die cut Bird Cage out of Teal card on the bottom flowered square placing a White die cut bird behind it. I like this Bird Cage as the door opens and it's quite a nice, decorative shaped Bird Cage.

To finish the card I added some Self Adhesive Pearls in opposite corners to balance out the card.

Items Used:

Recycled Paper & Card Pack (own stash)
Creative Expressions Foundation Card Teal
Spellbinders Shapeabilities D-Lites Bird Cage One
Spellbinders D-Lites Corners & Accents 2
