Boho Card

Happy Monday,  I have a quick card tutorial today. A bit of Bohemian, wild and free. So Boho it is! (Cue Bohemian Rhapsody).

The the list of supplies are at the bottom of the post.

1. Wash the feather with hot soapy water. Dry thoroughly.

2. Squeeze a few drops of Honey Bee ColoriQue in a palette dish and brush on the feather. Apply 2 coats and heat set between coats.
3. With the low grit sand paper, lightly sand the feather.  Apply 1 coat of the ColoriQue Sealant, heat set and set aside.

4. To create the card you will need 6 sheets of 12″ x 12″ scrapbook paper. Here are the measurements, starting with the card base working our way up on the layers: card base 12″ x 8″, score at 6″- 1st layer, 5 3/4″ x 7 3/4″- 2nd layer, 5″ x 7″- 3rd layer – 6″ x 3″ – 4th layer 3 3/7″ x 4 3/4″ – 5th layer – 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ – 6th layer 3″ x 4″.
5. Next trim 2 pieces for the inside liners of the card: 1st layer 5 3/4″ x 7 3/4″ – 2nd layers 5″ x 7″
6. Take the scissors and distress the edges of all the cut pieces. Using the ink pads and daubers, ink the edges of the distressed edges.
7. Adhere layer 1 & 2 with the tape runner. Before adhering layer 3 (6″ x 3″) get 2 pieces of jute and wrap it around securing with adhesive. Then continue adding the layers, including the 2 layers inside the card.

5. Add a several Nuvo Crystal and Glitter Drops using the Caribbean Ocean, Ripen Pumpkin and Emerald City. Allow to dry.

6. Tie 2 pieces of jute to the stem of the Feather and secure with a knot. Add a generous amount of Beacon® Adhesive 527™ and allow to dry.

The feather stands at 7 1/2″,  so I created the card to measure at 6″ x 8″ enough space for the size and weight of the feather, but look how gorgeous it turned out! I hope you enjoyed my project today. Here’s to the good CRAFTY life!

Thank you for visiting.
