Follow Your Dreams!

A masculine card today for a young man off to university soon. 

 I die cut a dreamcatcher with a die I bought from  eBay, using silver mirror card, which was then layered on MB 'Stitched Ovals'.  The embossing folder I used for the background is 'Feathers' by Crafts Too. I die cut the edge of the black card with a MB 'Stitched Country Border' die, before attaching it to the right hand side of my card.  The sentiment is layered on a black die cut, although it doesn't show up very well in the photo.  Both the sentiment and the ovals are raised up on foam tape.  I added three punched feathers, using a Fiskars punch, to finish off my card.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  2. What a great dreamcatcher die this is Liz and the feathers embossed background and the added punched ones complement it beautifully. I love the black, white and silver which gives a very clean finish to it. x
