Hello Paper Crafting Friends ~ welcome back to my corner of the world.
Today’s card is the result of clearing off my work bench before going away on holiday! At the end of July I was part of a Scrapbook blog hop and had decided to use the Detailed Peacock dies along with the Noble Peacock Specialty Paper. Rather than cut into my specialty paper straight away I had a little practice with some regular card – just to see what it would look like and if it would work on the page I was designing. Glad to say that it did – click here to see the results!
So now I was left with two perfectly cut pieces of Shaded Spruce card that I just could not bring myself to throw away!
Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Melon Mambo Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 5 x 3 3/4 Whisper White Card
Scraps of Whisper White and Shaded Spruce card for embellishments
Ink Color: Melon Mambo
The greeting is from the Magnolia Blooms Stamp Set I shared with you on Wednesday (yes it was on my workbench as well!) Check out the card here. While I have made this a thank you card,I think the design would be great for just about any occasion – just change out that greeting to suit!
I simply stamped the 3 petal flower from Floral Essence Stamp Set twice and cut with the Perennial Flower Punch. The two pieces are stuck together with a glue dot and the petals curled a little with my bone folder. The two peacock ‘tails’ are attached with tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and the flower attached with a Stampin’ Dimensional. A Clear Faceted Gem added to give a big punchy bling and I am done – pretty chuffed (happy) that I used up my scraps as well as making good use of that Magnolia Blooms stamp set again
