I was sent a monthly kit from Brutus Monroe with the Catching Dreams stamp set inside. (Link: https://tinyurl.com/yxmrg9m9 )
I used gray Recollections heavyweight card stock and cut a piece to 5 x 7″ and then die cut the center of it with a die that I can’t remember the name of it or where I got it (sorry.)

I cut another piece of the gray cardstock to 10″ x 7″ to create a 5 x 7″ card (scoring the 10″ length at 5″). I put this into the MISTI and laid three of the feathers from Catching Dreams in the MISTI with the first page I die cut over it, to ensure that you’d see all of the feathers inside the die cut area…I took the die cut sheet back out and used Versafine Onyx Black ink to ink the feathers then used clear Ranger embossing powder and heat set the feathers. I have a hard time stamping large areas, so used a tool I bought at Dickblick.com called a Baren to help with leverage, when pushing on the MISTI lid.

I put the die cut paper back into the MISTI and laid the sentiment from the same stamp set and inked it with the same ink and embossing powder, then heat set it. I decided I needed more feathers, so stamped a couple of feathers on this page as well..same ink and embossing powder and heat setting…

I opened the card and folded it open and stamped inside with a stamp set from Taylored Expressions called Dream Big. Unfortunately I couldn’t find this stamp set online, as I believe it’s retired…I stamped Class of 19 and inked it with a Black Sharpie.

I used Touch Five alcohol markers and colored all of the feathers in browns, beige’s and grays. I glued a feather inside the card and added some of the leftover holographic inside as well.

I took a piece of acetate cut to 4 3/4 x 6 3/4″ and glued it to the back of the die cut front of the card withe Tombow Mono Aqua glue. Then I put two layers of foam tape on the back as close to the opening as possible, used my embossing buddy to put powder around the inside edges of the foam tape so the glitter would’t stick to it…then laid the holographic glitter inside and laid the card base on it. Don’t put a ton of glitter inside, as less is better. I pressed the edges to ensure they were tight and the glitter wouldn’t come out.

The holographic glitter link is at the top of this description and the 10% discount is good until June 10th.
