About Me

My photo

Hi everyone! I am a veterinary technician living in NY who loves to pen pal and make cards in my spare time. I have never been good at crafts since I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler but I was determined to give it a go.  I love learning all the different techniques and ways to craft. Follow me on my journey as I grow as a card maker!

Feather challenge

Hey all.  Time for a new challenge at Savvy handmade cards.  We have a photo challenge for you today! The only thing is that your project must involve feathers of some sort. 

For my card, I have used owls sitting on a fence by From the heart digital stamps. I love owls so this stamp is perfect for me. And it fits the feather theme! I colored them with promarkers.  All the papers are from my stash.  I added some gems and ribbon along the bottom.  The sentiment used stampin up oval and scalloped oval punches. I used liquid applique to make the snow on the ground and a glitter gel pen for the snow on the fence.  Card layout inspired buy the sketch at Try Stampin On Tuesdays.

We would love to have you link up with us today!
