White Feather Card (IC #13)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this CAS (clean and simple), White Feather Card. :o)

I made this Interactive (IC) ACCORDION GATEFOLD CARD for my Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2019 personal challenge. If you want to find out more about it, just follow the link provided. :o)

This is a thirteenth type of IC I made for my challenge. I made 15 different types of interactive cards during Pisces period, which was my personal challenge. I completed my challenge, achieved my goals and had a lot of fun. I wrote a short review about the challenge here.

It's taking me much longer than I planed to share all my IC cards with you. I will give my best to share rest of two by the end of this month.

How I made this card...

To make this card I used gorgeous feather die cut I got from a dear friend crafter, Alice of Scrap & C. Thank you so much, Alice!!! 

For a card base I used a white cardstock paper cut to 11 1/4" x 5". I scored the paper at 1 7/8", 3 3/4", 7 1/2" and 9 3/8" on the longer side and folded paper along scored lines. I got a card base measured 3 3/4" x 5".

With the card base ready, I die cut a feather on both gate flaps. I glued an acetate piece behind each gate opening, but just on one half.

I die cut 4 more feathers from a white cardstock paper scraps and glued two together (stacking die cuts). Then I glued stacked feathers into gate openings (die cut inlay technique).

Lastly I created a super simple belt that will keep the card closed. I cut a vellum paper to a desirable size, wrapped the vellum belt around the card (not too tight), removed it and glued two endings together to form a belt. I placed the belt on the card to keep it closed and my card was finished. :o)

Card measurements (closed): 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")

List of supplies:

I LOVE how my card turned out!!! :o) There is so much space to write a message. Here is a short video. :o)

In this video I used music from a friend of mine and a first neighbor now, very very talented mister, dr.Izzy. I used part of a track Angel on my shoulder.... Beautiful music he creates is shared and is downloadable for free from his Soundcloud account. Thank you dr.Izzy!!! :o)

Thank you for stopping by and your kind feedback. Enjoy and smile! :o)
