Heartfelt Creations - Golden Plume

 Hi and welcome!

Wow, what beautiful weather we've been having here on Long Island. I just want to be outside every day. We usually expect snowy cold weather in February but this year it's balmy and beautiful. 

It looks like the peacock on my card is enjoying beautiful weather too. I really love creating shaped cards and this one is so much fun to make. 

Instructions: Card base is 3 7/8 x 5 5/8”. Finished card with the peacock is 5 1/4 x 5 7/8”. Cut white cardstock 2x to 4 x 6”. Add 1” double sided tape to the top of one of the pieces and burnish well. Diecut using the largest Ornate Window Die, score underneath the tape and set aside. Stamp the Ornate window on the other 4 x 6” piece using VersaMark, cover with Ranger Super Fine detail Gold Embossing Powder and heat set using the Heat It tool. Diecut using the coordinating outside die along with the windowpane die to create card front. Diecut a second time from white cardstock and adhere the two together for strength. Using the middle die from the same set, cut clear cardstock and adhere to the back of the window using dries clear adhesive. Cut the journal piece from the Ornate Peacock Paper Collection, sheet 2A, diecut using the outside window die, trim the top, ink the edges with Forget-Me-Not ink, and adhere to the diecut with the tape. Adhere that diecut to the card front to create the shaped card. Stamp the window again on Luxe Gold cardstock using VersaMark, cover with the same gold embossing powder, heat set and diecut using just the window topper die. Diecut 4 more times from white cardstock and adhere the layers together using dries clear adhesive. Adhere to the top of the card front.

Stamp the beautiful Ornate Peacock 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 once more from white cardstock and adhere behind the stamped image for stability. Lightly shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, seat it on the window and adhere using hot glue. Stamp the flourish from the Peacock and Posies Cling Stamp set on watercolor paper using VersaMark, heat emboss the same as the peacock, diecut using the coordinating, color using the same Zig markers and adhere inside the card so it shows through the window. 

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 medium 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 medium flower and two single leaves to the left bottom of the window. Adhere the three small flowers to the peacock as shown. Try to bunch the three flowers together so that you don’t cover up too much of the gorgeous peacock feathers. 

Stamp the ‘Congrats!’ sentiment from the Celebrate Love Sentiments Cling Stamp set on white cardstock using Archival Forget-Me-Not ink, fussy cut using a small scissor, shape a little with your fingers and adhere above the top left windowpane.
