Friday Die Day

Hello friends
A Good Friday Die Day!
I have steered away from an Easter project today but there will be a flurry
of Easter-ish items appearing over the Bank Holiday.
Today I am featuring Feathers On The Wind - one of the new In'spire line dies.  
There are two templates in the set and this is how they look cut/embossed.
I've chosen to make a very, very simple card!
White card base with patterned paper from my scrap box.
I die cut a Standard Circles Small and adhered the feathers at angles.
Stamped a sentiment and cut into a banner, positioned this
behind the circle and feathers adhered with 3D Foam Squares.

The finished card, with the addition of a button and twine.
Very - very simple design!
And a close up picture...

I'm thinking feathers lend themselves to both feminine and masculine cards
so could prove very useful.
I hope you all have lovely plans for the Easter weekend.
Take care friends - back tomorrow.

Morning Christine, A quick and simple card today, but so, so effective, I'm loving your background paper.
I'm off to Church early afternoon for the Good Friday Service, I was there last evening until 10pm, then tomorrow it will be cleaning for a few hours, to get it looking 'sparkling' ready for Easter Sunday. Eastertide is so hectic haha, but very 'emotional'.
Have a lovely day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

I love these dies and am delighted you have used them today. It is often difficult to imagine how the dies will look when cut. I am torn between these and the bigger set. Oh dear. Your card is lovely - one of my favourite colours too. It is simple, but gives the background paper a chance to shine!
Happy Easter.

Good Friday afternoon Christine,
It may be simple but it's stunning, love it!
The birdhouse is amazing too!
You have a way of really bringing dies to life which is a real gift.
Glad the hospital visit went ok, we have a separate 'injections' fridge, as it used to really get to me seeing all that horrible stuff in my kitchen fridge, so we bought a little cheap one!
I made a cover for the sharps bin too, as it doesn't really 'blend' in!
Have a lovely Easter weekend everyone,
Sandra xx
