So anyway i intended to make a Christmas card, however it ended up going in the other direction! I did use Christmas pattern paper! I pulled out an Authentique 6 x 6 pad and decided on this lovely Nordic like pattern for the card base.

Next i stamped three of the feathers from Tickle Me Happy on three other pattern in the same pad. I cut them out and then set them aside. I used some dark brown card stock and cut a tag. Next i used one of the sentiments from the Tickle Me Happy set and embossed it on the tag with white embossing powder.

To spruce up my card base pattern paper i decided to stencil over it. I pulled out a damask stencil and used distress ink to ink the stencil. I also added a little ink to the edge of my feathers. I tied the ends of the feathers together with black twine, then adhered them to the top of the tag. Last i added the tag to my card base with foam dots!
