Saturday - it's the weekend!

Morning readers,

I recently had need of a generally supportive card, for someone going through the wringer right now - I realised I don't really make those types of card very often. More often than not my cards have an occasion designated, like birthday/anniversary/get well/sympathy and, obviously, none of these were suitable. I made one for this person but thought that perhaps I should have one or too, given that these occasions require support sharpish and I might not always have the time to make one so ..... I made it red and not too girly so it could work for male or female but the addition of stickles PROBABLY makes it a little more feminine - see what you think ...

My card
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of my envelope

Materials used:
  • White A2/C6, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to fit
  • One piece of red card, cut to mat
  • Clarity Stamp feather image (AO61-G - "Matrix Feather") stamped using Versafine Clair tulip red ink
  • Hero Arts sentiment (from CL342 - "Everyday Sayings") stamped using Tim Holtz permanent distress ink in hickory smoke
  • Diamond stickles to trace the "vein" of the feather

I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-

What a gorgeous feather image and, along with the sentiment, is just right for a supportive occasion card.
