Tribal

Hi Crafters,
I have a friend who recently celebrated a big birthday and she really likes anything to do with Native Red Indians so I made her this card which she loved.



The papers and elements I found in a digital kit from Raspberry Road Designs and I had a Joy Feather die that matched beautifully to the theme. I used 3 colours of distress ink on the die cuts to mimic the feathers in the digital cluster on the left hand side of the card. Then I rummaged through my stash for the leather thong and the beads to thread through the eyelets I had put down the right hand side of the card. The skull and feather cluster was printed out a few times and decoupaged for interest and I cut the '50' using the Tim Holtz Vintage Market die. The inside was decorated simply to match the front.

Very different in the theme of this unique card. Love the colors & patterns that are so special to our western Indian culture. Those feathers are perfect as was the thong & beads. A very special theme to celebrate a milestone birthday. Love it! Your friend is lucky to have your skills to create such a wonderful card - she'll love it too. TFS & Hugs
