dangly birdcage card by lauren bergold

how ♥FABULOUS♥ are the girls' paperie "vintage whimsy" glittery charms that come in this month's pixie kit, MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM?a! well, my answer to that is an enthusiastic, "fabulous enough to build an entire card around!" see?

i literally planned this entire thing around that sweet pink gingham birdcage. i knew i wanted it to dangle in a window, so i used a nestabilities label die to cut the decorative shape in the center of my card, which i built out of a double layer of cardstock from the kit, to make sure it'd be sturdy enough to support the weight of the (heavyish) metal charm.

i threaded the charm onto some signature pixie dust seam binding, and anchored it in place with a plastic bead from the craft store. then i used my cropodile to pop a small hole in the top of the card, where i tied a bow, and used a bit of adhesive to secure it and decoratively arrange the ends.

i'm sort of pleased this card was made well in advance of its occasion... i don't think i'm quite ready yet for this bird to fly the nest! ♥
