Bird Cage with Nasturtiums and Berry Branches
Hello Crafty Friends! Christine here today with a project featuring Susan’s new Garden Notes Nasturtiums die set. I have had the bird cage for a while and have been wanting to do a project with it so when the nasturtium set came out I knew that it was perfect for the bird cage, purchased at a craft store. Here is how it was created: Step 1 From brown cardstock cut 6 Garden Notes Berry Spray. Using Kids Choice Glue to adhere the layers, stack sprays so you have 3 sturdy, thick sprays. Using Nuvo Crystal Drops – Violet Galaxy add berries. Set aside to dry. Repeat for the back side of the berries so they are rounded/3D. Step 2 Die cut 60 flowers from White Soft Finish Cardstock (or 36 if doing the draping only on the front) using Garden Notes Nasturtiums. Cut leaves from green cardstock. (Optional: Cut leaves from white and hand-color.) Step 3 Using alcohol markers, color all flower petals front and back. (shown: Copic Sketch R59, YR18, Y19, Yr09.) Used the colors to make different combinations. Shape and assemble all flowers using Garden Notes Molding Mat and 4 pc All Metal Tool Kit shape all your petals. Review …
