Christmas 3D Birdcage and Tag...

Happy Holidays my blogging friends. Hoping that you are more prepared than I am for the holidays :-) To be honest, all I am looking forward to is some ham, stuffing and eggnog LOL... 

Ok, so as promised here are my final part of my one on one Christmas swap with my Yt buddy Ann. I made her a Tag and a 3D birdcage (you probably saw them in my previous posts) as she told me she couldn't get hers to look as neat as mines -_-

 This Tag was made from lightweight chipboard and Tm Holtz Vintage Doily on the Edge die. Wild Orchid Crafts Trellis rose and sentiment from My Minds Eye Stamp set. All other embellishments are from my stash and local stores.

 The base is a wooden plaque I had and I just built up my creations from there.
The Arch is made from lightweight chipboard, folded inwards at both ends to adhere to the base. Made my 3D Birdcage from Tim Holtz Birdcage die and suspend it with fishing wire, which I decorated by stringing pearls, that is visible at the top of the arch.

 Large Snowman and hat is a Sizzix die and embossing folder set.

 Other side view.

 Top view... large Prima butterfly and WOC Gardenias, both are absolutely gorgeous!

Close up view.

Thank you all for your visit, I do appreciate you spending your time here :-) 
Have a save and lovely Holiday with family and friends. See you soon.
