Sometimes a stamp set or bundle grows on you over time, and sometimes you see something and love it straight away, and it was love at first sight for me with the gorgeous Noble Peacock suite. The only question is, why has it take so long for me to get it out and use it!
For this card I CASE’d the catalogue and used gold embossing for the detailed bits of the peacock’s feathers. I used Shaded Spruce for the main stamp. I decided to emboss the background layer and the frame around the peacock, but used the debosssed side for the background which looks great.
I like that the peacock just peeps over the frame – I used dimensionals to pop him up. I did try using just a rectangle frame but it didn’t look right because the frame was too narrow so I did what Stampin’ Up! did and used the Stitched Nested Labels dies.
I didn’t use any of the beautiful shiny cardstock either because I wanted the peacock to be the main focus. Hope you like him!
