Modern Gold Feather Hello

Posted on

Wow that was a long short week! Work was crazy busy yesterday, lots of last minute things to do. I also helped Nancy with her bike. Her and Nicole have their 75 mile bike ride today. I told her that I will miss her! LOL! I can’t even imagine doing that. I stop and think whether I want to drive 75 miles let alone ride! More power to them and I wish them the best of luck! I have lots of projects to make today, tomorrow is the Creation Station blog tour so be sure and come back for that. I also have to get ready for Monday! 😛

I was sitting at my desk last night browsing through the new Catalog and I keep seeing this one project in there that I love so I decided to do a little CASE of it. The card starts off with a base of Crumb Cake Card Stock and the background is a piece of Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum. I used two strips of paper from the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper Pack for the flags. A piece of Gold Foil Sheet has some holes punched out with a standard hole punch and happy accident, they lined up nicely with the dots on the DSP! The two feathers are Island Indigo and Basic Black, they are made using the Ovals Collection Framelits and my trusty Paper Snips. I tucked some Gold Sequin Trim behind them and adhered them to the card with Mini Glue Dots. My greeting is from the Six Sided Sampler Stamp Set and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Calypso Coral and punched out with the Hexagon Punch. I love the mix of colors with the gold and yes, I’m a bit obsessed with feathers! But you all know that! I hope you got some inspiration from today’s card and that you enjoyed it. Many thanks for stopping by and have a super Saturday! 🙂
