Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - May - Die-Cuts

I hope everyone is having a good weekend.  We, in the UK are having a bank holiday, and, as is customary on a bank holiday in the UK, it is raining - well, at least it is in the south west - which is the downside of living on the coast.  Anywho, here is the card I made for the Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - May

The brief was, to use die-cuts or punches.

As usual the DT came up with some stunning inspirational examples.  Here are the rest of the pictures of my card, they are a little dull I'm afraid due to the dismal lighting.  All supplies will be listed below.

In retrospect, I think if I did this design again, I would emboss the feathers in a matte embossing powder.

Supplies used:

Avery Elle - Custom Panels die set
Waltzingmouse - Fine Feathers, stamps & dies
Clearly Besotted - Love die
Incidentals - Cardstock, patterned paper, vellum, embossing powder, embossing folder & bakers twine.

As always, thank you so much for brightening my day with your visits and I hope you are all having a good weekend, whatever you are doing.  Hazel xx

  14. Hi Hazel, Finally made it to HLS and enjoying some marv inspiration. Saw your card and zipped over to say how much I like the way you've used the angle die. Wonderful texture with the embossing on that shape. Those finely etched feathers are so incredibly detailed & pretty. A very soft feeling on this card and such tremendous dimension with all the elements. TFS
