Hello, and welcome to my blog. Today, I want to showcase the amazing Peacock die and then, share the Stampin’ Up! specials that begin TODAY! So, keep reading all the way to the end!
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 pink rhinestone gems from Noble Peacock Pearls. Sponge dauber to sponge Blueberry Bushel ink around the oval.
I just could not bear to intrude on 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.
