Today’s monochromatic Pretty Peacock card would make the perfect notecard for suggesting a meet-up with friends or just to let them know you care. I love how all the different embellishments work together to create interest to what is a very simple card.
I wanted to use the wooden leaves on numerous projects but couldn’t quite make them work here I think thye do. The first leaf was adhered to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the second was adhered using Mini Glue Glue Dots so it could add some dimension to the card.
A few Pretty Peacock Rhinestone from the Nobel Peacock collection and the card is finished. A card suitable for all year round and not just harvest time.
I was going to share this ard tomorrow when it actually is Halloween but as we’re pumpkin carving as a family this evening I’m in the Hallloween mood today. Plus if you do send Halloween cards its a quick last minute project you can easily put together today.
The background was created using the two pumpkin stamps from the Gather Together stamp set, I used clear block I and stamped both stamps together in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I then coloured each pumpkin in with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Bledns markers.
I debated for a long time whether or not to draw faces on each of the pumpkins to make it more spooky looking but in the end decided against as my drawing skills are not great, but feel free to do so it you’re casing the card.
I added a strip of the Black Satin Ribbon to the centre of the card and then stamped my greeting on a panel cut from the Ornate Frames dies. I didn’t have a Halloween themed greeting which was curent so stamped my own using the Make A Difference stamp set and the Stamparatus.
I fnal touch was to add a few Pumpkin Pie Rhinestones from the Holiday collection, these are hidden away on page 58 of the Autmn/Winter catalogue and a great additonal to any holiday themed project.
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.
