Hello crafty friends! Justin Adkins here, and today I have a sweet card to share with you that features the new More Fanciful Feathers Dies, and also combines a handful of other new March Release products!

Below is a list of products that I used to create this card:

Let's get into the details about how I put this card together!
Let's start with the background, because it was definitely the longest portion of this card to create! I went ahead and used Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet Distress Spray Stains on Watercolor Cardstock to create an inky background. Once dried and flattened (tip: you can run your slightly warped panel through a Minc Machine or Laminator, in it's respective pouch, to help flatten a bit), I applied some Pixie Spray to the back of the Center Polka Dot Stencil and applied it over my panel. I spread a thin and somewhat splotchy layer of the Blue Color included in the Paper Glaze Luxe Sampler Set- Nature's Colors. I removed the stencil, set the panel aside to dry completely, and washed off my stencil immediately.
After my panel was dry, I trimmed it down to about 4.125" x 5.375". This helps trim off the excess Paper Glaze Luxe and give nice clean edges.
To create my feathers, I took Mixed Media paper and smooshed it over watered down Salvaged Patina and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink. Once dry, I used the More Fanciful Feathers Dies to cut out a handful of feathers, which I then splattered with the  Paper Splatter Water Color- Liquid Turquoise Blue. Once dry, I used liquid adhesive to adhere these feathers to my dried panel, trimming off anything that went beyond the panel. For the bits that got trimmed off, I re-purposed them and adhered them to different edges of the card to help fill up the space.

When making my sentiment, I heat embossed the "Thinking of" and "You" sentiments from the Brighter Days Gerbera Daisy Stamp Set in white powder on purple paper. Once dried, I used the Brighter Days Gerbera Daisy Coordinating Dies to cut out the sentiment. I used foam tape to adhere the sentiments in the center of the card.

To finish my project, I adhered my panel to an A2-sized card base, and also adhered a few sequin embellishments onto the panel. My card was fully complete!
