all the best

Hello, crafty friends! Seems my mojo has shot into super-charge mode over the last couple days since getting over the flu! I'm certainly not complaining, though! ;) I'm happy to share a CAS wedding card for a friend at work who has a niece in her 40s getting married for the first time. She mentioned her niece is of Native American descent, so my feather stamp spoke to me, and I just got a chevrons die and some gorgeous teal glittered gumdrops that I've been wanting to use, so it didn't take long for my card idea to take shape. :)

My cards typically have many layers so this is very unusual for me, but I'm in love with it! The CAS design with white feathers and teal paper with teal elements really look great together.


I stamped the feather in Versamark and embossed it with white fine detail embossing powder, then sponged some grey ink on it, then repeated the process for the second feather. I embellished the feathers with a double loop teal bow accented with two teal cube beads. I stamped the sentiment beneath the feathers in teal ink and added three glittered gumdrops in the top right corner.


On the inside, I stamped a feather in the grey ink and the sentiment in the teal ink. I hope she likes this as much as I do! ;)


I would love to enter this wedding card into the following challenges:

Leslie
