Fine Feathers - Card 1

Hi everyone,

  I hope you are all having a good week, the sun has finally come come out after a week or so of very miserable weather. 
So I thought I'd bring a bit of colour into my life using the fine feathers stamp set from Stampin'Up! , I have had this sitting on my shelf for a while and decided it was time to bring it out and use it !
I'm sure many of you Stampin'Up ! Lovers have stamp sets on the shelf that you have never used, but when you ordered them you really did NEED it !! , well don't think your alone in that because I can assure you you're not ! 

Anyway enlighten waffling from me and onto my First Card using the fine feathers stamp set, this time as a background. I like how it turned out and if you embossed the feathers ,which I will do next time! It would bring the design out even more. 


                                   


Using Stampin'Up!'s whisper white notecards as a card base, I stamped one of the lovely fine  feathers stamps  randomly over the card front using the smoky slate ink pad. 

I then cut some Bermuda bay cardstock to 1 3/4 x 4.75 inches 

Then cut a layer of whisper white to which I also stamped in smoky slate using a different fine feather stamp.

 I then Inked the edges of the stamped whisper white layer with smoky slate and folded over two short pieces if smoky slate chevron ribbon which I sandwiched between the to layers of cardstock and adhered it to the card using the fabulous snail adhesive by Stampin'Up!  

To finish of I used the decorative label punch to cut out two labels in Bermuda bay and whisperwhite cardstock.  The bermuda bay label I cut in half and and adhered each half to the end of the whisper white label to create a Mat layer. I then stamped the thinking of you sentiment from the sweetly framed hostess Stamp set. 

I hope you like this card and I would welcome any comments , good or bad !
