Three Feathers

I finally had a chance to make a card Just for fun!  
I've been doing a total cleaning out of my craft room (ongoing for 3 weeks so far and expected to take 3 weeks more at least!)  and I found some beautiful feathers! 
I did the in-laid die technique for the birthday piece -  die cutting the word out of the Vintage Cream panel, cutting it again out of a piece of sanded Kraft Core Core-dinations paper and inserting that piece in the space where I removed the cream piece.
This makes for a perfect masculine card with these colors -  but would also work for a female!

My card design was inspired by:

Just before the bell!  Link up by 4/24!
I used stamping, inlaid die cutting, feathers, sanding (of die cut), and rhinestones.


Stamps:  Studio Calico Limited Edition
Paper:  Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate - PTI, Kraft Core Core-dinations.
Ink:  Cocoa Bean - PTI
Accessories:  Wonderful Words Birthday Die - PTI, mini sander - Ranger, feathers from stash, rhinestones - Kaiser Craft.

Glad you paused for some creativity in the midst of the whirlwind re-organisation! I love this card - those feathers were definitely a lucky find. I know there are treasures hiding in the depths of my craft room - one day I might find time to dig them out!
