Heartfelt Creations ~ Perched Peacock

Hi Friends,

Today I have another really fun design I created using the Ornate Peacock Collection by Heartfelt Creations. I am having so much fun with these colors and design elements. The ideas are just flowing in and out of me. Lets take a look at what I have come up with today....




Cut a piece of white cardstock to 9” x 7” and score in half at 4 1/2”. With HCD1-7298 Decorative Cage Die cut through both layers of the folded card base making sure to let the left side of the die to fall over the edge of the card to preserve the fold. This will create the shaped card base. Next using the same die, cut a piece from sheet 6B for the front of the card and 6A for the inside, from the HCPD1-2148 Ornate Peacock Paper Collection. Adhere these two pieces in place. (Inside piece will need to be trimmed slightly to fit) Now using the second largest die from the Decorative Cage Die, cut one in white cardstock and one in Luxe Silver Cardstock. Layer these with the white on top and slightly off set them so that the silver peeks out from behind. Glue these to the card front. 

Stamp the HCPC-31014 Ornate Peacock Cling Stamp onto white cardstock with Versa Mark Ink. Sprinkle with Purple Shadow embossing powder and heat emboss with a heat tool. Color using HCDA2-450 Stack and Store Daubers with Sunflower, Magenta Hue, Paradise Teal, and Bluebird. Stamp HCPC-3912 Cascading Wisteria Cling Stamp Set 2x with English Ivy Archival Ink. Color lightly in Leaf Green and English Ivy. Die cut with coordinating dies and ink the edges with English Ivy. Shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Now stamp the flowers from HCPC-3976 Curvy Floral Frame Cling Stamp Set in Manganese Blue Archival Ink and color using Manganese Blue and Magenta Hue. Die cut with coordinating dies and ink the edges with Manganese Blue ink. Shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit then finish off by adding Bright Pearl Stamens Small and Crystal Clear Glitter. Last but not least stamp a sentiment from the HCPC-3847 Celebrate Love Sentiments Clings Stamp Set with Majestic Violet Ink onto a piece of coordinating scrap paper. Die cut using the HCD1-7202 Album Tags & Accents Dies. Ink the edges using Bluebird Archival Ink. 

To finish the card simply arrange the peacock along with the vines and sentiment and attach using glue and 3D adhesive. Add flowers using a glue gun. Then for a finishing accent add little silver gems for added details to the birdcage itself.

I hope you enjoyed that as much as I enjoyed creating it for each of you! Check out my personal project in the Heartfelt Creations Gallery to find out what products I used for this project.
