Hello and thank you for visiting my blog today.
Pretty Peacock is a really lovely colour and coupled with silver heat embossing, makes a really smart looking card.
The card base was made from a sheet of Thick Whisper White A4 cardstock was cut to 5 13/16” on the long side, then one of the pieces was scored at 4 1/8” and folded to make the card base. A piece of Pretty Peacock Designer Series Paper cut to 35/8” x 53/8” was attached to the card. A piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 2¼” x 5¾“ was cut, dry embossed using the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder, then attached centrally on top of the DSP. Next I used the Braided Border Punch with Pretty Peacock cardstock, cut to 5¾” and adhered to the centre over the embossing. Heat embossing next; on Pretty Peacock cardstock I stamped a flower, stem and leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set in Versamark, covered with Stampin’ Silver Emboss Powder and heat set. This was cut into an oval shape using the largest from the Stitched Shape Dies and adhered to the centre of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally, the sentiment from the Vibrant Vases stamp set was stamped in Versamark onto Whisper White cardstock, covered with the same embossing powder and heat set. I cut this to 1¾” x ¾“ and attached to the card as shown.
