Heartfelt Creations - Filigree Oval Peacock

 Hi and welcome!

There are only two days left for me in my 70's. On Friday I'll turn 80...where oh where have the years gone? I still feel like a kid!

If I was to make myself a birthday card, I would definitely choose the Ornate Peacock Collection. It is so colorful and so full of life (just like me lol).

Instructions: Card size is 5 x 7”. Score and fold 5 x 12” Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper at 6” and burnish well. Using the second largest Oval Filigree Frame Die, which is the plain die, place it about 1/2” over the fold and diecut to create the card base. Diecut the largest die from the set 3x, twice from white cardstock and once from Luxe Gold cardstock. Adhere the two white ones together to make a sturdier piece and then adhere to the gold diecut a little offset. Adhere this to the card front. Using the plain oval die, cut 3x, once from white cardstock and twice from Luxe Gold cardstock. Adhere the two gold ovals together slightly offset and adhere to the card front. Place the white oval in an embossing folder, run through the diecutting machine and adhere to the card front. Cut another piece of white cardstock using the plain oval die, trim the top and adhere to the inside of the card. This will make it a little sturdier to balance the heavier card front. Using the third largest Filigree Frame Die, cut 2x, once from white cardstock and once from Luxe Gold cardstock. Stamp the ‘Hope your day is as Special as you are’ on the white diecut using Archival Forget-Me-Not ink, adhere to the gold diecut slightly offset and adhere to the inside of the card. 

Stamp the beautiful peacock and the flourish from Peacock and Posies Cling Stamp set on white watercolor cardstock using VersaMark ink, cover with Ranger Gold Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heat set using the Heat It tool. Diecut using the coordinating die and color using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers – Fl. Green, Yellow, Persian Green and Dark Pink. Diecut each once more from white cardstock and adhere behind the stamped images for stability. Lightly shape the images using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Adhere the images to the card front as shown using dimensional squares and dries clear adhesive.

Stamp the Clematis flowers on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Vibrant Fuchsia ink. Color the fronts and the backs using the same ink, diecut using the coordinating dies and shape using the 3D Clematis Mold. Add additional shaping using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Adhere two petals of the same size together to create each flower and create one large and three small flowers. Pierce the flower centers and add Bridal Bouquet stamens using hot glue. Stamp the Garden Lily leaves on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using English Ivy Archival ink, color the fronts and backs with the same color, diecut using the coordinating die, add additional ink to the edges and shape in the 3D Lily mold. Using a paint brush, add dries clear adhesive to the flowers and leaves and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter.

Adhere the flowers and leaves to the bottom right of the Filigree Oval.
