Four Feathers found my house!

I'll admit, I wasn't jumping on the feathers band wagon when this little stamp set, Four Feathers came out in the holiday catalog last fall.  And, THEN..... I kept seeing all these beautiful things done with this set, and, well, I changed my mind, and this little set and it's matching framelits made their way to my door...

This set and framelits were carried over from the holiday catalog, and are still available to order.  Since I had never used them yet, I decided to feature them at my stampers club this month.  I was inspired by a few cards I've seen on various sites.  I wanted a masculine card to add to my line up, so World Map background stamp fit the bill perfectly, and it show cases how simple stamping can make an amazing background.  I stamped the map stamp on Very Vanilla card stock in Soft Suede ink, and then sponged the edges with more Soft Suede ink to give it that weathered, vintage look.  The little strip of Soft Suede card stock on the front was embossed with the zig zag embossing folder, and then sponged with Suede ink to make the pattern pop.  The feathers are stamped in Old Olive and Bermuda Bay ink and cut out with their coordinating framelits.  One feather is cut from the gold glimmer paper.  A button from the neutrals collection, or a stamped and sponged wood element piece, some linen thread, and a couple of candy dots complete the card.  A little zip, but not TOO much for the man in your life!
