This was my first card using WPlus9’s Fanciful Feathers stamps and coordinating dies. I adore both the images and the lovely hand script sentiments in this set. I had to make two thank you cards for my boys, who have just finished a two week summer music school program at the Canberra Young Music Society. Over 400 children took part, during a record-breaking heatwave. Keeping those children cool, safe and happily occupied was no mean feat! So we wanted to thank our kids’ teachers with a little card and gift. The colours were inspired by this week’s WPlus9 Monday Mood Board:
The stripes on the left of the card were stamped using images from WPlus9’s Country Charm set (I find myself reaching for that set all the time!). Next I die cut the feathers. Lining up the images on the die cut shapes is super easy. I stamped the smaller feather images in Memento Luxe Peanut Brittle and Stampin Up Smoky Slate. The larger feather is lovely and delicate and I wanted to keep that feeling when it was coloured, so I lightly spritzed it using a colour spray. To adhere that feather I used a Quickie Glue stick – much easier and neater than using a tape runner.
Thanks for looking :).
