The Birdcage image, from the Papermania Tweet stamp set and the Little Bird image from the Papermania Chatsworth Furnishings stamp set were stamped using Versacolor Black pigment ink onto black card and Stampendous Stamp 'n' Bond embossing powder was added and heated. The Gold Lustre Iridescent Mica Pigment Powder from Stamps Away was then dusted over the sticky powder and left to set. (It tends to stay a bit sticky for a while but does set hard eventually).
Holes were pricked in the top corners of the image panel, using the Stampin' Up piercing template (Mat Pack) and small red brads from Papermania were added in the corners. This was then matted onto white and red card.
A half-front card blank was created from red card. The white and gold foiled bamboo paper from the Papermania Oriental Treasures paper pad was matted onto the black card and adhered to the inside of the card.
A white paper flower from Papermania Imaginisce was covered in Emboss Clear Pigment ink and then the Stamp 'n' Bond powder was added and heated to melt. The Gold Lustre mica powder was then dusted over the top. A smaller white paper flower from the Prima Botanicals Mix was coloured using a dark grey Copic marker (N9) and the Gold Lustre mica powder was lightly dusted over the top. The flowers were then layered up and a large red Papermania brad was added in the centre and attached to a panel of the red and gold chrysanthemum paper matted onto the black card. This was then adhered to the card front.
The sentiment panel was created by stamping the Happiness symbol and word from the Papermania Oriental Treasures Lanterns stamp set using the Versacolor Black ink onto a black oval die cut using a classic oval Nestabilities die. The Stamp 'n' Bond was added and heated and the gold mica powder dusted over. The sentiment panel was then matted onto larger red and white ovals, also die cut using the Nestabilities dies. The sentiment was added in the bottom right hand corner of the inside of the card, overlapping the image panel.
