This Stampin’ Up! Four Feathers card is striking! There absolutely were other nice Four Feathers cards in the Founder’s Circle swap, but you can’t help to have a favorite. And this is mine.
After your done admiring it, you sit back and realize it is a simple design. A simple design with a lot of nice touches.
The color combination is fabulous. We have Smoky Slate, Bermuda Bay and Basic Black. The blue just pops off the page.
Three of the four banners only needed a fishtail cut on each end. On the fourth “just because” needed to be stamped in the center and a fishtail cut on each end. What a great way to use up all those small scrap pieces we just can’t throw out.
The little bit of a Tea Lace Doily peeking out adds an elegant touch.
The lines along the bottom are from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. The are understated and flow with the banners. Great for a fill in.
Then you have the accessorizing the Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine and silver sequins from the Frosted Sequins. Nice, nice, nice nice nice.
All of that to dress up the feathers from the Stampin’ Up! Four Feathers Stamp Set. One feather was stamped right on the Smoky Slate Cardstock. The other two were stamped on Whisper White Cardstock and die-cut in a Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine with the coordinating Feathers Framelits Dies. No need to handcut the feathers when you have Framelits to do it for you.

Four Feathers Card Supply List
Four Feathers is from the 2014 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. The Holiday Catalog is filled with limited-edition products available only until January 5, 2015. Only a very small select items make it into the next annual catalog. Off the top of my head, I can only think of one stamp set from last year’s Holiday Catalog that has also been included in the 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! Catalog. Not a chance you want to take if you want to add the Four Feathers Stamp Set and Framelits to your stamping selection.
Would this Four Feathers card make it to the top of the list as your favorite too?
