This is based on the brilliant man sized wash bag by Elaine Jackson of paperbuttoncrafts. I needed a box somewhat smaller and loved the keep closed aspect, so here is a version that uses just one piece of A4.

Apologies for the delayed posting this week. We’ve been busy buying a first car for my eldest, so with that and work it has been crafting on the back burner. So a card using four feathers stamp and die set.
I started with a whisper white notecard and used the Gorgeous grunge stamp set to stamp the splatter using smoky slate.
I then punched a circle using the 2 1/2 inch punch and then blended Pool Party ink all over before using a handheld punch to make two notches. I then tied some linen thread around the circle before using dimensionals to mount onto the card.
I stamped three feathers using Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride. I then covered one of the feathers with versamark and heat embossed using clear embossing powder.
These were then simply shaped slightly and layered onto the circle with more dimensionals.
I stamped a sentiment with Blushing Bride which was punched out using the word window punch and inked lightly with the same ink before adding to the card.
