An OBG, a box and a "tweet"!


Hi, everyone!
Thursday's are Oldie But Goodie Days at Catch the Bug Blog! I put together this cute little card to go with an svg box I made for my hubby. He LOVES black jelly beans, and me.....well,,,,I say "ICK!", so I always set them aside for him when I buy a bag. lol! The little box is something I put together for him to hold them in (it's an svg file I created). Sorry - I'm not giving this one away as a freebie, If you'd like to purchase the file for $1.50, please contact me via email: cherylfirst1@yahoo.com. I accept Paypal payments (no checks or money orders).

The card is made using my Nesties, Scalloped Squares. The image is a Bugaboo Stamps OBG (Oldie But Goodie), and it is called Spring Bird - Flower Swing. The inside reads "A Tweet For You!" :0)
I did some embossing on the base of the card using a new embossing folder (new to me, that is) from Stampin' Up, Square Lattice. The white-on-white was decided upon to show if f the colorful bird image.
I cut the second card layer using Nesties, Fleur de Lis Squares and the image was cut using Nesties, Orchard Harvest Tags & Accents Die. Each card layer is applied with pop-dots for some dimension.
Here's a closer pic of my card:

I used some Easter Grass to create a nest for the candy. :0)
All four sides of the box look the same. It is one cut, plus a bottom piece to create the box, and then I added the cage layer, the bird swing layer, the cage accent layers and the birds (the birds are on pop dots). 

You can check out all the Bird images, and the other great images that Jodie has to offer, at the Bugaboo Store here.
