The Bird Sings.....

Oh I was so excited about this card!!... I have been in a creative slump...and said to myself... "Jeannie no wonder you haven't prayed for a card!!".... I so said my prayer... then my "Thank you God for a card." to show my faith...and  this is what I got to make!!... its easier to see in person... there is a whole behind the birdcage... then a square of the same paper the birdcage is on... to the bird looks like he is inside the cage...not just behind it... I was so excited about this effect!!!... I hope that you like it too!!... I love your comments... they encourage me to create more!! thank you so much in advance for inspiring my spirit!... Hugs, Jeannie

Large Decorative Square cut @ w 3.88 x h 3.24... on the Cricut I would cut this @ 3 1/4 inches.
Medium Decorative Square cut @ w 3.69 x h 3.0 inches ...on the Cricut I would cut this @ 3 inches.
Small Decorative Square ..the one with the square in it ... cut @ w 3.21 x h 2.86  this I rotated to make the taller side go vertically... on the Cricut I would cut this @ 2 3/4 inches.
Birdcage and its layer cut @ w 1.53 x h 2.56...on the Cricut I would cut this @ 1 1/2 inches.
Birds and their wing layer cut @ h 0.75... set the height and the width will be right...on the Cricut I would cut this @ 3/4 an inch.
Large Square.. the one I used behind the bird cut @ w 1.67 x h 1.27 you will have to unlink the width and height to get this measurement... using the Cricut I would cut this at 1 3/4 inches by 1 1/4 inches on a paper trimmer.
Smaller Square .. the one that makes the hole in the decorative square.. do no weld this.... cut @ w 1.25 x h 0.95 inches.... using the Cricut I would lay your birdcage on the back of the decorative square cut and mark the square the bird in using the inside lines of the cage... then use an exacto knife to cut your square tiny bit larger thank you marks.
