Heartfelt Creations - Sitting Pretty Peacock

 Hi and welcome!!!
My card today is a simple one that easily fits in an envelope for mailing. I absolutely love creating cards with the Ornate Peacock collection!

Instructions: Card size is 5 x 7”. Score and fold 10 x 7” white cardstock at 5” on the long side to create card base. Cut sheet 9B 2x from the Ornate Peacock Paper Collection measuring 4 3/4 x 6 3/4” and ink the edges using Cactus Flower ink. Cut Luxe Gold cardstock 2x measuring 4 7/8 x 6 7/8”. Adhere the designer paper to the Luxe Gold cardstock and adhere one set to the card front and one set to the inside of the card. Cut white cardstock measuring 4 x 6”, ink the edges and stamp the sentiment ‘Hope your day is as special as you are” from the Special Birthday Sentiments Cling stamp set using Archival Garden Patina ink. Adhere to the inside of the card. 

Cut a stack for the card front as follows: white cardstock 3 3/4 x 5 3/4”, Luxe Gold cardstock 3 5/8 x 5 5/8”, Sheet 9B from the paper collection 3 1/2 x 5 1/2” and another sheet of white cardstock 3 3/8 x 5 3/8”. Ink the edges of the designer paper, stamp ‘Happy Birthday’ from the Special Birthday Sentiments Cling Stamp set on the top right of the white cardstock using the Garden Patina ink, dry emboss the white and adhere the layers together in size order using dries clear adhesive. Adhere the stack to the center of the card front using dimensional tape. 

Stamp the beautiful peacock from the Ornate Peacock Cling Stamp set and the pretty flourish from the Peacock & Posies Cling Stamp on watercolor paper using Metallic Gold ink, cover with WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter and heat set using the Heat It Tool. Color using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and the water brush. Lightly shape using the deluxe flower shaping kit and adhere the peacock to the card front using dimensional adhesive and adhere the flourish to the inside.

What a gorgeous card! Your peacock really pops on the white background and I love the way you have used different colours in your layering.
