Try Me Tuesday

It's Try Me Tuesday over at My Creative Time.
Today we are making a card with feathers.  Since feathers seem to be a trend these days, this was fun to make!  There are many different ways to add feathers to your cards.  You can use store bought feathers, die cut feathers or even cut out your own feathers from paper ~ pretty easy to do, just make a skinny leaf shape and then using scissors, cut in the sides and snip out little pieces to create your feather.  I took the easy way out and had my machine cut them!!

First card, I cut the feathers from Kraft paper and then using my stylus, rubbed down the center of each feather to create a "stem" look.

My Creative Time Products Used:

Other Products Used:
Paper: Stampin' Up
Button, Twine and Enamel Dots
Feathers cut from Cameo

Had so much fun with the first card that I made another!!  Amazing how the feathers can change the whole look by just cutting out in pattern color paper.

Using a patterned paper does change the feather a lot. Both styles look so pretty. The MCT sentiments are so pretty they are a design element by themselves. Beautiful job!
