Feather Birthday Card

Hello! Today's card is based on a card I saw here. I needed a card in someone's favorite colors, yellow and gray. This is a masculine card, so I didn't want frills.

I used my Scallop Border punch for this "shelf" punched from Sahara Sand card stock. I inked the "celebrate" from Fabulous Phrases in Basic Gray. I tied a knot with Linen Thread onto a Mini Library Clip.

To anchor my feathers, I offset a rectangle of Beau Chateau designer series paper. I punched my Basic Gray and So Saffron card stock "feathers" with the Blossom Petals Builder Punch. I scored them down the middle lengthwise, using my Simply Scored. Then I used Paper Snips to feather the petals so they look like a feather. I used my Basic Gray Stampin' Write Marker and the Color Spritzer Tool to splatter on some color.

I hope you like this card and that you will leave your kind comments for me to read.

WOW, what a great card for any man/boy on your list. Great idea to use the blossom petals punch for the feathers. Will have to take a closer look at all my punches - who knows what lerks in the shapes of our punches.
Thanks for sharing
