Proud as a Peacock


This is a lovely design which I use a lot as it can be adapted to lots of occasions.  The base card is created with a large Nestabilities shape which has been die cut twice, the front and the back.  A scored line is added to one of the pieces about a half inch from the top.  The front panelis embossed in a machine after cutting to give it a nice edge.  White Brilliance ink is used to tint the edges of the card, and liquid pearls are used around the edge too.  Then the front panel is attached to the back using red double sided tape along the scored line, allowing the card to open.  The background panel is a piece of lighterblue card that has been embossed through a machine, then glittered.  The edges are tinted, and when dry the panel is matted on to silver mirror card and layered on to the base card.  The focal panel is stamped in blue Brilliance ink and heat embossed in clear powder, then glittered.  When dry the artwork is die cut, the edges tinted, then layered and attached to the card with dimensional glue.  A sentiment panel is made in the same way and attached to complete the card.
