Papertrey Ink and MFT Graduation card




Hello everyone,

Recently, my posts have been scheduled, first because I was away and then because I had to empty my craftroom for decorating. I was dreading doing this and had been putting it off for ages, but the carpet was worn down to the floor around my desk and I couldn't put it off any longer. My amazing family helped me with all the work and I am now putting the last things back into place. I've been asked to show some piccies, and once I have my new computer up and running, I'll have a go at that. I haven't been around your blogs for a while but I hope to remedy that next week and see what everyone has been up to.

Well we are ready for a new challenge over at Simply Create Too and this time the theme is feathers. Sadly, our lovely challenge organiser Angie has  just lost her much loved Boxer, Bleu, who died yesterday, so the challenge post will be a bit late this time.

I came up with this card


I used an old Papertrey Ink stamp that had a feather in it and made a graduation card, but in all my chaos, I couldn't find the details, so if you want to know more, please send an email and I'll find out for you. I used a die from one of the MFT Blueprints set to cut out the panel, and a stitching die made the borders more interesting. I glittered the feather spines and they look lovely in real life!


Why not visit the blog to see lots of inspiration from the team, and join in with us this time.


I'd like to play along with




Thanks for stopping by

  9. The feathers look lovely with the glitter down the spines Carol and such pretty colours too. The cross stitched border either side frames it beautifully too. The most perfect graduation card. x
