Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes and Tasteful Textures Mashup Card

I’ve made this card for a stamping friend who has had a tough medical diagnosis this year.  I know she loves the Pretty Peacock colour and feathers, so I had to incorporate them into the design. 

Her blog logo has a two-toned feather similar to the ones I made.  To get this effect I inked the feathers in Crumb Cake ink, then used a Sponge Dauber to add Pretty Peacock ink over most of the stamp, leaving just a bit of the Crumb Cake showing.  Then I fussy-cut the feathers…thank goodness for the super-sharp Paper Snips with that very fine point!

I decided to use 2 pieces of the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper.  They have the same scroll design on a Pretty Peacock background, but one is in Night of Navy and the other is in Copper Foil.  I also added the Copper ribbon from the Basket Weave and Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack to the centre of the Pretty Peacock ½” Scalloped Linen Ribbon.  More of that ribbon makes a bow, and I pulled out the now-retired Copper Metallic Thread to add a tousle behind the feathers.

The label pieces are cut with the Tasteful Labels dies.  I cut the Crumb Cake label in half horizontally and spread it apart to make it more visible behind the Whisper White label.

I know my friend will recognise the personalised touches I put into her card, and hope it will bring a smile to her day.  Isn’t it fun we can make cards that are as unique as the individuals we send them to?
