In review - Four Feathers masculine birthday card

Four Feathers is a set that had to grow on me initially, but grow on me it did. I used it for my darling Man's birthday card last year, then the card disappeared until I found it again a couple of weeks ago. Now that has reappeared, I've taken pics & can finally share it with you... just in time for Four Feathers to fly away as it won't be carrying over to our new annual catalogue. Anyway, here's what I made for my darling.
It's a little tricky to see & photograph but the card has a stamped layer overlaid with vellum. You can see the stamped feather layer better in this pic. I got the idea for the drifting feathers from this great card by Kim Ryden. I think it was a fun way to show movement.
I die cut happy through both the stamped & vellum layers with my Little Letters alphabet thinlit dies to show the island indigo mat underneath. I think this & the stamp images from the hilariously named Age Awareness set added a less traditional twist to the card, which I liked & I think Damo did too.
This idea could be easily replicated with paper or many stamped backgrounds to make it for a teen or child too so I hope you've found it useful. Leave a comment if you have any questions or just liked the card. Back soon!
Inky wishes, Di
