As the Occasions Catalog retires next week, we’ll be saying goodbye to the Four Feathers stamp set and coordinating Framelits. It’s a great bundle, and perfect for handmade masculine cards. Four Feathers debuted in the Holiday Catalog last year, and showed up again in the Occasions Catalog as a carryover item. I thought I’d share a handmade Father’s Day card with you, and remind you that after June 2nd, these items won’t be available any longer.
Between the feathers and the chevron, this is the perfect card if you want a bit Southwest flair. Of course it will work for most any occasion, just change the sentiment or even leave it off the front.
You may recognize that the background is stamped with the Work of Art set – the brushstroke for texture, and the chevrons for embellishment. If you haven’t see it yet, take a look at this video.
I used Sahara Sand and stamped off first before adding the brushstrokes to the Soft Sky background. Then I used the new In Color, Tip Top Taupe, (also stamped off first) for the chevrons. The sentiment is the taupe stamped full strength. You can get a good view of Tip Top Taupe in the mat behind the background. It’s a lovely, warm, light brown that is a great addition to our palette of neutrals!
We’re so close to the catalog transition, that it’s important to be aware of the stamps, tools, and accessories that are retiring next week! As I’ve mentioned in the post What You Need to Know, you’ll be able to order items from the Occasions Catalog and Retiring List on the first day of the new Catalog, June 2nd. But that’s only true for one day. Come June 3rd, all the Retiring List and Occasions Catalog items will no longer be available.
