Pretty Peacock Leaf Bouquet Card

I love the Come to Gather Suite of products as soon as I saw them its definitely my favourite Autumn themed suite for many years, mainly because the papers include Pretty Peacock. I think this is a bold choice for an autumnal themed collection but it really works with the Cajun Crze, Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron.

I knew as soon as I got these product home I’d create a card which featured Pretty Peacock Foil die cut leaves and these turned out even more gorgeous than I expected. To create some more interest I cut some more leaves in Pretty Peacock cardstock. A little tip I’ve picked up from other demonstrators if you spray the card before you die cut the leaves you will get a two-tone effect, no idea why this work but Ilove them.

For some additional texture to my leafy arrangement I added some of the foiliage from the Frosted Frames dies in Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake. These are all secrured using glue dots as I didn’t want to move my leaves after I’d got the arrangement how I like.

The “Wishing You Well” greeting makes this card suitable for many occasions or to simply just send to someone to say “Hi” which is exactly what I’m going to do as this week is World Card Sending week. Why don’t you join in and send some random cards yourself.

Happy Crafting
