Feathers for You

I am having a tough time keeping up with my blog and with all of the swaps that I signed up for! Convention is just 19 short days away and I have signed up for 11 swaps and have a Blog Hop (July 12-14, don't miss it!) to design for, ahhh! I must be crazy! I have come up with 9 of the swap card designs, and cut, stamped, and prepared them, completed 4 of them, and still need to design 2 more. The last 2 are big ones, so I need to make sure I have enough supplies of whatever I design before I start on them. Upside, I will have almost all of my posts for July done way ahead of schedule :) Downside, I feel like I need to do all of my designing for swaps first. Luckily, this card turned out to be too much fussy cutting for the shoebox swap, which is one of the 2 that I need to design for yet. I do love how it turned out though!

I don't do a whole lot of fussy cutting, but this was very worth it. I actually had to walk away from this card last night and come back to it this morning as I was struggling to put the right accent to the left of the sentiment. I tried to put the goose from Wetlands there, but it was too big. Then I tried some buttons and Natural trim. Too small. then the feathers popped into my head! Why it took so long, I have no idea :)
  • Stamps: Fine Feathers, Four You, Positively Chevron
  • Ink: Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso
  • Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso, Naturals Ivory, Very Vanilla
  • Other: Big Shot with Adorning Accents edgelit and Chalk Talk framelit, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Paper Piercer and Mat,  Signo white gel pen, dimensionals
Happy last day of June! How the heck did it slip by so fast?!
