Hi card makers! This weeks challenge is to make a card using something that has feathers. I love this image from Doctor Digi House of Stamps called “Quackers”.
Let’s make this card. A fast and easy one!
Step one: I like to print out on copy paper first in two different sizes before I print onto cardstock.
Once you decide what size you like, print out on white cardstock. This is my favorite cardstock for coloring with Markers. I learned of this cardstock on the Kit and Clowder website, where I take classes. It can be purchased on Amazon.
Step 2: Color the printed image and fussy cut it out.
Step 3: Score a pc. of 8.8 x 11″ white cardstock at 5.5″ along the long side. So that you don’t cut two ovals, position the largest die from the die set below with the top of the die extending over the fold just under the cutting line. The result will be an oval shape card but won’t interrupt the stitched edge. Distress the edges with PanPastels 520.5 Utramarine Blue and sponge daubers.
Step 4: Using this die set with either below cut only the branch from Elizabeth Craft Designs : You can cut it from wood grain cardstock or brown or white and color it.
Step 5: With your computer create a sentiment. I’m sending this card to a friend who is angry with her husband who thinks “intimate” contact fixes every bad mood. I’m hoping that she will get a chuckle out of it. But it can be used for a lot of occasions. I also used this same image for this card:
Step 5: Cut out the sentiment with a “speech bubble” die from this set:
Step 6: The last step is to assemble the card. First adhere the branch to the front of your oval card, You may have to trim the branch on the bottom of the oval. I trimmed the narrow bottom pc. under the duck on the left as it was about 1/4 in. over the edge.
