That is amazing! The cuts are really really clean too, something I'm incapable of achieving. Nice work Smiley

Thanks for all your comments!  I finished the birdcage, but haven't gotten a chance to photograph it yet, unfortunately.  I'm in the process of moving into my new apartment and getting ready for college to begin in a week.  I'll try to get it up as soon as I can, I love hearing feedback from other knowledgable craftsters!

So cool! I've got to try some! Except, I don't think I'd want to put that much effort into a card. Maybe a piece of art that could be set up in a shadow box? Huh That would be cool.

Omg LOVE!!!! That is so pretty Smiley Very professional looking. I love the design and the bright orange against white, works really well. Clean-looking but with a burst of color Smiley And the cuts really neat too.

I didn't take a class, I actually went to a book store and was inspired by this AMAZING dinosaur pop-up book (I wish I could recall the name!).  Mine, of course, was much simpler, but I just sort of... examined theirs enough that I was able to figure it out.  I'm sure I looked ridiculous to people passing by the children's section though...
Haha I do that all the time. I love children books: the colors, illustrations, especially the ones with the pop ups and pockets and other interesting bits Smiley I would like to write a children book one day. But yeah, must've looked weird to people passing by... though I don't care! Grin

Now I'm totally inspired, should make one of these too! Smiley I'm looking forward to see the birdcage one Smiley Hope you'll post that soon.

Nice work! I really prefer a more simple look (like you've got here), than the trend toward filling handmade cards with every available bobble and die cut. Lovely and inspiring.
