This is a thank you card I made for an older friend of mine. I wanted something elegant, and I wanted to use feathers.
The card itself was pretty simple to put together. I used a piece of black cardstock for the base and a piece of deep red paper I got in a pack from the dollar store (it's a solid red with creases and splotches of darker red on it). I glued on the feather and put the black velvet ribbon over the point and then laid down the pearls. I thought afterwards the edge of the Zva Creative flourish should have met up with the feather, but they didn't want to move without taking bits of paper with them, so I left them be.
I used a metallic gel pen to write the message inside.
