Embossed Feathers Encouragement Card

Here is an encouragement feather card that I am sending for a high school graduation.


Front sentiment:  Go Fly. Dare to dream. Dare to achieve. Listen to your soul.

Inside sentiment:  Have big dreams and grow into them.

This is included in the Unity Stamp Co {be inspired} Sketch Challenge 17 June/July 2014 and Friends With Flair this week.

The feathers were heat embossed with gold metallic and blue on vellum.  Her school colors are gold and blue.  I added a lacy trim and a bow.

Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co. November 2013 SMAK Be Your Own Beautiful & February 2013 KOTM Grow Into Spring.  Also, Lil' Inker Designs stitched oval die.

Have a wonderful day. :)

  1. This card is so pretty. I love the gold and blue I amazed you were able to emboss with both colors and it looks so great. When ever I try two colors it looks a mess. You have mad talent.
