Enjoy your day

I created a card for a fellow crafter and since she wanted to know how it was done, I will share the process.  I took a piece of black card stock and cut it using my Big Kick and this full card triangle die:
I adhered it to a white card base using Tombo Mono Multi glue which has a thin tip and works well for this sort of application.  I stamped the sentiment and feathers using Hero Arts Tide Pool ink and VersaMagic Aquatic Splash before impressing it with one of my favourite impression plates to add texture - the Papertrey Book Print impression plate:

If you click on the picture below to enlarge it, you can see the texture it adds:
I used an exacto knife to cut out one row to make space for the sentiment.

Thanks for the interest in how to make it! :-) Hope that answers any questions you might have ...

Paper: Staples 110lb white, Papertrey Black
