ID: MC July/16 - Feather & Holly - ECD Remember - Christmas Is The Day card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: July 7, 2016

So another Xmas card under my belt... slowly but surely wins the race. BIG GRIN

I love the Feather and Holly eCut file by Suzanne

One of the NEWEST "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs ("Remember") available in the near future, designed by Suzanne Cannon (also available HERE). 

I'm also using a quote stamp on the inside from Quietfire Design  

("Christmas is the Day..." 9pce set); eCut ("Feather & Holly card")


Scored and folded my cream toned cardstock. 

Place my feather and holly card on my mat. Ungrouped everything and set the card base to the side. Gathered all my feather and holly elements and increased the height of the feather to 6".  eCut everything from white cardstock.

Scored vein lines in the holly leaves and hit them direct to paper with Distress "Crushed Olive" then a bit more lightly with "Mowed Lawn".

Direct to paper with "Antique Linen" on the feather, then scored lines for the feather details. Went over the feather again with "Aged Mahogany" and then with a bit of "Fired Brick". 

The berries I inked with "Candied Apple and embossed with UTEE twice. Adhered them to the white under layer. Added dots of Liquid Pearls "White Opal" to the white areas.

Layered two pieces of Ruche cardstock leaving a 1/4" border all around. Adhered a piece of gold ribbon, then adhered my feather & holly elements, then all of that to the card front.

Die cut the word "Remember" from cream toned cardstock, inked with Versamark and embossed with Distress "Antique Linen". Die cut another word from the red Ruche and adhered both together slightly off set, then on to card front.

On the inside: stamped the holly detail (Flourishes "Naturally Merry" inking the stamp with the mowed lawn and the berries with the candied apple, misted with water, stamped and clear embossed.

Stamped the quote with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.
