Beer Can Birdcage





Hello everybobs x  this card is for a friend of mine turning 40 today and has a surprise party tonight (no she wont be reading this lol).. ive been attacking the beer cans again..(come on hubbie drink up i need supplies) this time using tim holtz caged bird die and teamed up with first edition birdsong papers. i love the way using tin caches the light.  ive found if you pop the tin in your cuttlebug with the die underneath and the patterned side of the tin facing upward the die sort of bevels the tin as it cuts it making it safer to have as an embelishment.  anyways hope you like this one as much as the jalopy x
