Hello, and welcome to the Greek Isles blog hop! It is hard to believe that we leave for this Greek Isles incentive trip in just a few weeks! For today’s card, I want to showcase the amazing Peacock die.
Surprisingly, this card uses no stamps…on the outside, anyway. I think this beautiful Detailed Peacock die, combined with Perennial Essence designer series paper, makes a glorious display of beauty. As you can see, I used the Beads and Baubles embossing folder on the Blueberry Bushel panel that I layered onto the same colored card base. Here is a close-up of the card in an effort to portray the shine and glimmer of the card. Can you see that I brushed Wink of Stella over the designer series paper? It is so hard to photograph!
Blueberry Bushel Cardstock – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored and folded at 4 1/4″, 5 1/4″ x 4″ run through Beads and Baubles Embossing Folder.
Balmy Blue Cardstock – 3 1/5″ x 5″ die cut with third largest Stitched Rectangle die (inside), 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ die cut with oval Heirloom Frames die using the middle oval only.
Noble Peacock Foil Sheets – 2 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ to die cut Detailed Peacock.
Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper – 2 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ to die cut tail feathers.
Extras: a tiny pearl colored with Dark Black Blends for eye-ball. Three of the light pink pearls from Share What You Love Artisan Pearls. Sponge dauber to sponge Blueberry Bushel ink around the oval.
I just could not bear to intrude the gorgeous card front with a sentiment. This card would work for so many things! So, using the Beautiful You stamp set, I stamped the sentiment on the inside as seen below.
I hope this card inspires you to experiment with this die and different designer series papers. It is a very simple card with a big bang, just what we are all looking for. You can find all the supplies that I used to create this card below. Now it is time to move on to the next creation on our Greek Isles Blog Hop.
