How's your weekend going? It's a long weekend here in Canada, so we are enjoying some extra time as a family - it's so nice to have my husband home and we can all spend time together.
Today's card has been socked away for a few weeks - another one I've been saving! This soft and simple card was created by request of a customer - she was looking for something beautiful and traditional for her in-laws' anniversary.
I decided to go with gold and Soft Sky, and the feathers were such a beautiful feature that I wanted to let them shine on both layers, in both colours.
I decided to go with gold and Soft Sky, and the feathers were such a beautiful feature that I wanted to let them shine on both layers, in both colours. The simple tone-on-tone background lets the gold stand out; the feathers were heat-embossed on Glossy White Cardstock, which was then sponged with Soft Sky. The gloss makes it a little extra special and goes nicely with the shine of the gold.
The stamp set shown here, Feather Together, is one of my old favourite stamp sets, but there's some new stuff right around the corner.
