Hello, and Happy World Cardmaking Day! I’m a huge fan of techniques, and drool over those wonderful projects that you can tell the designer spent hours on. For me though, the simpler the technique, the better!
The technique I’m going to share with you today is so quick and easy, but really adds a lot of pizazz. I’m going to show you how to make elegant gold “dipped” feather accents. The card I created today is based on this wonderful bonus sketch from Cardmaps 4 (on sale HERE!)
Supplies: patterned paper: Crate Paper, American Crafts; cardstock: Bazzill Basics; enamel dots: My Mind’s Eye; sentiment sticker: Pebbles; dies: Paper Smoothces, Simon Says Stamp; Glittered Tape: American Crafts
Start off with a basic die cut feather accent.
Add an extra little touch by incorporating an embossed stitched detail down the center. Position the straight stitched die from Paper Smooches “Stitched” die set in the center of the feather as shown, and run through your manual die cutting/embossing machine.
Use your feather die once again, as well as a small strip of adhesive backed glittered tape. (The one I used is a favorite by American Crafts. The shade is Brown Sugar)
Position the glittered tape on the tip of the feather die as shown, and run through your manual die cutting machine.
Remove the adhesive backing and adhere the glittered tip to the end of the feather.
Voila! You have a gold dipped feather accent to incorporate into your next card or paper crafting project. So simple…so easy!!!
Thanks so much for joining me today, and once again happy WCD!!!
