Feather Cards...

A brand new challenge has been created this year by Darnell of DjKardkreations 
It's called a Twofer Card Challenge
All the details for this challenge can be found HERE

As you can see from the logo, the aim is to make two different cards for two
different occasions, using the same stamps and/or dies.
The theme for this month is 'FEATHERS'

My first card is a Sympathy card.
The products I have used are:-
Feather dies - Purchased from eBay
Cuttlebug 4 die set - Vintage
Britannia Dies - With Sympathy
Josy Rose - Nailheads
Challenges entered:-
Happy Little Stampers January Challenge - Anything Goes with Dies
4 Crafty Chicks - No Winter Blues (No blue colour)
Tuesday Throwdown - Layer it Up
Alphabet Challenge - Use 3 of Something (Dies)

My second card is a 'Just to Say' card for any occasion.
I die cut the feather from the embossed panel and glued a small piece of patterned
paper behind the aperture. I then die cut the feather a few times in plain card
and glued them together to give a bit of depth.
The products I have used are:-
One of the two Sizzix Embossing Folders - Lace Set 2
Stampin' Up - Word Window Punch
Woodware punch - Scalloped Oval
Challenges entered:-
Emerald City Crafts - Anything Goes
Simply Create Too - Use Embossing (Wet or Dry)
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Challenge up your Life - Embossing Folder

I am entering both cards in the Twofer Card Challenge #1
