Happy Friday!! Woot woot!
Are you ready for an awesome new release from Sami Stamps?
This one is full of feathery fun - since it's Valentine Feathers!!
I chose to work with the image named just that :) Valentine Feathers!
Retro Sketch for the card and do some sort of tag...but the rest was just made up on the fly. I really love this bright and bold valentine striped paper, but it was a little too loud for my card. So I covered it with a piece of vellum and then sewed them together with some gold thread. I recently purchased the Enchanted Gold embossing powder from Ranger and absolutely love it! So of course, I had to use it on this card.
I did sort of a "dipped" tag style that I saw Debbie Hughes do a couple times. It's really fun and I love that it's just a little bit different from the normal style tag.
I printed off my image, and before I could even really think about how I wanted to color this cutie up, his belly was already colored red...wasn't completely sure I wanted that, but I rolled with it and it worked out so perfect! The thread piled behind him is what was left over when I cut the extras off the back. Didn't want that gorgeous gold thread to go to waste!!
Some read twine was wrapped around the card and tied into a bow at the top of the tag. I also stuck a sweet little heart swirl die cut from the Lawn Fawn Bugs & Kisses set behind that bow. Finished everything off with some red enamel dots and a cute sentiment!!
