Feather Thank You Card Set - Couture Creations



Hi! I'm sharing a thank you card set that is quick and easy to create for Couture Creations today. I used the NEW Feather Die from the Secret Treasures Decorative Die Collection. I colored my feathers with Gelatos and added a subtle shimmer to them with Crystalina Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue.


Step One: Apply several bright shades of Gelatos to a craft mat.


Step Two: Mist the Gelato color with water and blend with a finger.


Step Three: Press a piece of white cardstock onto the pool of color, press down and rub the back of the paper to transfer the color and then peel the cardstock from the craft mat and allow to dry.


Step Four: Cut four feather from the colored cardstock using the Feather Die and add a light coat of Crystalina Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue to each feather.


Step Five: Cut two pieces of 8.5 x 11 inch kraft cardstock in half and fold to create four card bases. Stamp a thank you sentiment onto the bottom of each card. Attach a feather the the top center of each card with Double Sided Tape to finish.


Here's a closer shot of one of the feathers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
