Feathery Thoughtful Wishes


Card size is 5 1/2 x 5 1/4”. Cut white cardstock to 5 1/2 x 10 1/2”. Score and fold at 5 1/4”. Cut two pieces from the Feathery Florals Paper collection to 5 1/2 x 5 1/4”. Using the large outline from the Slim Ornate Rectangle die HCD3-7448 to diecut a border along the top and bottom of the panels. Since we are wanting to have our paper wider than the Slim Ornate Rectangle actual die size you’ll need to make a few modifications to maximize the versatility of this die.

Tape the border of the Slim Ornate Rectangle die along top of your first panel from the Feathery Florals Paper collection and diecut only the top border. To do this, remove the thinnest plate from your diecutting machine, now since it’s so thin it shouldn’t make an actual cut when you pass it through the machine. This will allow you to place several cardstock shims on top of the die, only on the section you wish to diecut. Now when you pass it through your machine it will make that cut along the top of your panel, but not along the bottom. Repeat this step to diecut the bottom border. Repeat this for the purple background.

Cut an oval opening in both panels and in the card base using the largest plain edge oval in the HCD1-7157 Eyelet Oval and Basics Large die set. Ink the edges with Majestic Violet ink and adhere together, then adhere this onto card base using foam adhesive. Diecut several layers of Large Ornate Rectangle from same die set, layer together to create a thicker frame. Cut apart the so you have two separate borders.  Apply Dries Clear glue onto sponge, dab randomly frame and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear. Glue onto card base, then use scissors to trim off excess.

Cut green panel from paper collection to 5 1/4 x 5 1/4”, ink edges with Leaf Green ink. Stamp butterfly using both Magenta Hue and Majestic Violet ink onto green panel. Use the coordinating die to diecut some painters tape into a butterfly shape, and carefully place over image on green panel. This will work as a mask. Take an image from Petite Feather Florals stamp set and stamp onto green card panel using Leaf Green ink. Remove butterfly mask to see your beautiful images. Adhere panel on inside of card base. 

Use white cardstock to stamp the images. Stamp the Petite Feathery Florals using Olive and Leaf Green on the foliage and Rose Madder and Magenta Hue on the flowers. Stamp the small feather using Majestic Violet and Forget Me Not Ink, stamp the large feather using gold ink, emboss with gold embossing powder, heat set.

Diecut images with coordinating dies. Diecut an additional large feather out of Luxe Gold cardstock for layering. Color images with Stack and Store daubers. Color the Petite Feathery Florals with Vivid Chartreuse and Leaf Green on the foliage, and Rose Madder on the flowers. Apply Crystal Lacquer onto colored image using a Hydra Sponge, allow to dry. Then use scissors to snip apart for dimension. Color gold embossed feather with Sunflower and Magenta Hue inks, adhere coordinating Luxe Gold feather at a slight offset for a shadow effect. Adhere as shown, using Dries Clear glue and foam adhesive. Lightly shape images with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

Apply ink to sentiment “thoughtful” using Magenta Hue and Majestic Violet ink on white cardstock, then stamp entire sentiment "You are so thouhgtful" using same inks on another piece of white cardstock. This allows you to control how wide your borders will be for the word “thoughtful”. Use paper trimmer to cut apart, matting some words with Luxe Gold cardstock if desired. Adhere with foam adhesive. Apply Dries Clear glue onto card as desired, sprinkle with Baby’s Breath glitter and allow to dry.
