Card Corner: Focus on Feathers

Hi there!  Yesterday was my first time to share over at 
as one of their Card Designers!  I'll be there for the remainder of the year :)
Basic Grey was one of my first loves in scrapbooking,
so it was a real honor to be asked to join them for a bit!

For my assignment I was asked to create two cards with a focus on the
new "Second City" Feathers by Kelly Purkey

First up....a "Hello Turkey" Card

It’s hard not to look at feathers and think of a bird, turkey or other
 feathered fowl!  I found a coloring book template of a turkey’s body online, 
printed it onto a piece of paper and then trimmed out.  Next, I placed the 
cut-out onto the back of the yellow paper and traced the design and cut out. 

 For the body, I used a 2.25″ circle die to cut the paper and then layered it
with the front of the turkey.  Before arranging the feathers to the back of the body,
 I machine-stitched down the center of each.  Cluster the feathers as you’d
 like and adhere to the back of the body.  I cut a strip of purple paper to
 3/4″H X 2.75″W and cut a V into one end.  I added the sticker letters and 
then adhered below the turkey with foam adhesive.  The wooden
“hello” was applied just above the purple strip.

 UR So Cool Card
For this card I chose to arrange the feathers in a circle shape to resemble a wreath.  
I die-cut the center of the herringbone paper with a 3″ circle die and then mounted 
it onto a piece of the yellow paper.  To attach the vellum feathers I used Glue Dots.

  I separated all of the cuts to each feather to add more dimension. 
 To the top of the chipboard sentiment, I attached one of the flair buttons
 and used some black letter stickers on the top.  the centers of the feathers
  were accented with black enamel dots and a few wooden veneers.
