Peacock Hello | by Crystal Komara

Hello readers! This is Design Team member Crystal Komara here today sharing one of my “oldie but goodie” favorite dies. As much as I despise birds (shhhhh!), I do admire the peacock simply for the gorgeous plumage of its quills. I mean who wouldn’t want to shake their booty and BOOM! Instant wow factor! : )

Just look at the details in those tail feathers!

The base of this A2 sized card was made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. On a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of the same white cardstock, I heat foiled the Gilded Grace Hot Foil plate with gold foil. I only used the large background piece (and not the center cut outs) for this card. Then I created the layers of the peacock using a variety of teal and purple cardstock from the Ocean Blue 6 x 6″ paper pack and Vibrant Violet 6″ x 6″ paper pack. For the top layer (Layer A) and the main body of the peacock I used a teal glitter paper from the Glitzy Glitter 6″ x 6″ paper pack.

I then adhered the peacock to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.

For the sentiment I heat foiled the Hello Sugar Script with purple foil on white cardstock. I used the coordinating die to cut it out and adhered it to the card with foam adhesive.

Ahhhh, she’s so pretty! I hope you have enjoyed today’s card! Be sure to come back tomorrow for more inspiration from my fellow design team members!
