Royal Peacock – Inspirational Card

The choice of colors for today’s card was one of those happy accidents – inspired by the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots (pg 177 of Annual catalog) which fell out of the little box I had stored them in – the Lovely Lipstick ones in particular attracted me, although, to be honest they look more like Melon Mambo to me and that is the color I chose to pair with one of the new in-colors, Pretty Peacock which is just perfect for the stamp set I chose!

The Royal Peacock Stamp set has been so very popular and I am sure I will be sharing more cards with it but today it is the stamp that puts highlights on the peacocks tail that is the focus of my card, along with some gold heat embossing.

 

Card base:  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Pretty Peacock Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4

Layer 1:  5 1/4 x 4 Melon Mambo Card

Layer 2: 5 x 3 3/4 Very Vanilla Card

Banner: 3 3/4 x 1/2 Gold Foil Card

Ink Color: Pretty Peacock and Versamark

I stamped the ‘tail’ one time in Pretty Peacock ink then again in Versamark ink sprinkled with gold embossing powder before heating it with my Heat Tool.

The greeting is from the same stamp set, again gold embossed then cut with the Petal Labels Dies and attached to the card with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals…………. then those enamel dots cascading down the embossing ~ a very different type of card for me but I really do love it!
