Grateful for You

Hello friends - thank you for stopping by! Yesterday I shared a tutorial using one of the Spellbinders Stamp and Die sets (you an find it HERE) and had a stamped image left over put that together with the fact that I have been busy 'pottering' with leftover papers - the ones that are too pretty to throw out but can't sit around and clutter my desk for too much longer - do you have the same thing happen - or is it just me?! Wink:wink!! It all has to add up to a card....

The card front has been created by adhering some of my favourite left over pieces of patterned paper, from DCWV and Graphic 45, to some recycled cardboard.  This has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Thirty-Eight Etched Dies #6 (#1 being the smallest) The card base has been cut using white card stock using  Labels Thirty-Eight #7 and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine – 6″ Platform.

The feather from the One of a Kind Handmade by Stephanie Low Stamp and Die Set has been stamped using black ink and coloured using Chameleon Pens.  It has then been cut/embossed using the co-ordinating die and popped up onto the centre of the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares

.  A computer generated sentiment has been adhered below the feather using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.  Sequins have been randomly added
