Beautiful Peacock

1. Cut a 3-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Basic Black Cardstock.  This rectangle will serve as the mat for your image.

2. Cut a 3-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White.  This piece is for your image.

3. Use Tempting Turquoise Ink Pad to stamp your Beautiful Peacock.

4. Use an Archival Black Ink Pad to stamp your first set of tail feather.  I stamped the first (rounded one) in full black and then stamped it again so it was a light shade of gray. 

5. Use an Archival Black Ink Pad to stamp your second set of tail feather.  This set I stamped full strength black.  I did not stamp off.

6. Use an Archival Black Ink Pad to stamp your “Beautiful Friend” sentiment.

7. Now, stamp the smallest decorative flower randomly around your tail feathers.  

Tip: To add interest stamp a few in Tempting Turquoise and a few in Basic Black. 

8. Add a few embellishments such as Gitter Epoxy Shapes, Jewel Rhinestones or Metallic Enamel Shapes. 

Base

1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Tempting Turquoise Cardstock and fold it in half. This is your base.

2. Wrap a piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon around your card base and tie a decorative bow on the right hand side.

3. Once you layer your Beautiful Peacock on top of the Basic Blacks cardstock then its ready to mount on top of your card.

4. Center and adhere you Basic Black Cardstock to the top of your card using stampin dimensionals.

  1. Hi Brandy,

    Thank you for the instructions to make this beautiful card with the Peacock stamp set (a freebie in the SAB catalogue). I used up all my freebies but I am hoping to put in another order to SU before the end of March so that I am able to collect further freebies such as this wonderful stamp set. Then I will be able to create fabulous cards like you have done here. :o)
