Embossed Birdie Wishes

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  Today I have another whimsical card to share with you, I like to have card that are suitable for any occasion on hand and also for the shop that sells my cards - so handy if you need a card at short notice.

The adorable bird from Katzelkraft .  It has been coloured using Chameleon Pens, fussy cut/hand cut out using scissors  and popped up onto a Nestabilities Standard Circles SM Etched Dies.

The layered image has been been popped up onto a Framed Petite Labels Embossing Folder - discontinued (sorry)  The Folder has been distressed using ink and a white paint pen. The card front has been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives By 3L 3D Foam squares. The outer circle has been created using the largest two circles from the Nestabilities Standard Circles SM Etched Dies to create a frame, this has been glued onto the embossed card front.  The sentiment from the Die D-Lites Sentiments 5 Etched Dies has been cut and glued across the lower portion of the circles. 

Yellow braid has been glued onto the 3D Embossing Folder and Want2Scrap Silver Rhinestones - Medium have been added along the braid.
