Heartfelt Creations: bird card with tag

OMG, I had so much fun last Saturday. I had booked myself in to craft class with our local Craft Store in Hornsby/ Sydney , called Catchy Crafts, they had Emmy Lou from Heartfelt Creations teach how to make these gorgeous cards. Emmy Lou is here in Australia with her brother and husband and are traveling all over the place spreading their gorgeous card making style....
I really love all of their beautiful dies, I spent way, way to much on supplies......
I really enjoyed making them....the 'fence' is a pocket that the tag fits behind and is made up of two corner dies that overlap, to create the pocket, the little bit behind the bird tag is also a corner die, just turned and you see the little part poking out.... the flowers are stamped and then die cut, coloured with sponges and then shaped to create the 3d look. I used liquid pearls for the flower centres.  I really enjoy making the cards, you will get to see the others I made over time....
I am trying to recreate some of them, see how I go with that...
Blessings Hilde
