The challenge at
House of Cards this month
is to use feathers
and/or the colors in the photo below.
I used both on my card.
All supplies used were from from Stampin' Up!, most are no longer available:
Soft As A Feather stamp set
Canvas background stamp
Birthday Greetings stamp set
Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake card stocks
Chocolate Chip mulberry paper
Soft Suede and Basic Brown ink
Baja Breeze striped grosgrain ribbon and corduroy button
I stamped a row of feathers then carefully trimmed around them.
The bottom edge of this piece of card stock was distressed.
The Suede card stock was stamped with the Canvas background.
I then used the paper piercer along the top and bottom edges.
It is trimmed a bit shorter in height than the Crumb card base.
A damp paint brush is a great tool to use to help tear mulberry paper:
just paint it where you want to tear the paper, it makes it so much easier !
After tearing the mulberry paper, I curled the edges a bit before layering
it behind the feather stamped Sahara Sand piece.
Stamped and hand cut banner that I inked the edges of is attached with
a corduroy button that matches the striped grosgrain ribbon.
I probably should have taken photographs against a white background
rather than burlap. The card was mailed the day after I made it, so
no chance to retake the photos - sorry.
Thanks for looking =)
