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.
