Rebecca's Birdcage Card Video

Hello, Crafters.

I would like to say a big THANK YOU for all your good wishes on my daughter's engagement - we are all feeling very blessed.

I also appreciate your feedback regarding product lists for my projects.

This morning, I uploaded my video called Rebecca's Birdcage Card. 

It was inspired by the fabulous swap I received from Rebecca Willmore, who's always coming up with great ideas.
Rebecca's website isn't ready at the moment but she can be contacted by email at in the meantime.
I shared Rebecca's swap in my swap video after Telford on 5th November and I received requests for a video showing how it's made. 
I used an amazing SEVEN stamp sets to create this card: 
In the Meadow - grass
Number of Years - Cherry Cobbler flower 
Foxy Friends - the cat's face
Butterfly Basics - sentiment
Badges & Banners - birdcage
Hardwood - wooden background
Ready to Pop - the climbing plant

Another amazing detail, which won't really surprise you, given that you already know my photography skills are somewhat limited: the window frames are Old Olive!
The length of the "climbing" plant isn't long enough to go from top tobottm of the card but it wasreally easy to stamp on an "extension".

The reason for stamping the grass was because the length of the Hardwood Stamp leaves a straight line at the bottom where the "wood" ends. Stamping the grass a multiple of times, avoids this being seen!   

That's about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
