Feather Together Birthday Card

My son chose well for his partner in life. Jennifer is a lovely woman and I'm proud that she is a part of our family. I also LOVE that she likes pretty things. I always enjoy making her cards, because I do believe she appreciates them! Unless noted, all products Stampin' Up!

To make this background, I simply placed 3 of the feather images from the Feather Together stamp set all at the same time on a clear block. This makes for a simple way to do an all over background. After stamping the image repeately with Melon Mambo on Whisper White cardstock, I used one of the other feather images and a splatter image from Awesomely Artistic to add some gold embossing to the background. I gold embossed the sentiment from Feather Together on vellum. 

Before I attached the vellum, I took a small piece of ordinary cheesecloth and tapped Versamark on the edges, then sprinkled gold embossing powder directly on the cheesecloth. I always lay my cheesecloth on a piece of aluminum foil and hold it down with a wooden skewer or the end of a paint brush as I heat emboss with the heat tool. The aluminum foil reflects the heat, helping the heat embossing go super quick! I applied a few tiny pieces of Tear & Tape to adhere the cheese cloth. I used Multipurpose Glue to glue gold sequins to the vellum piece. After the glue was dry, I put glue on the back side of the vellum (only on spots underneath where the sequins were glued, this helps hide your glue) and adhered on top of the cheesecloth. There is a small scrap of Whisper White cardstock under the vellum and the cheesecloth, to make the gold embossed wording stand out a bit more.
