Beautiful Peacock and a little Champagne

This week I will be featuring cards from the Beautiful Peacock stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog, which you can earn free with a $50 qualifying purchase.

I absolutely loved the Champagne Foil Sheets that came out in the 2017 Holiday Catalog and thought it paired wonderfully with Berry Burst, so I set out to incorporate it with some “homemade” Champagne Embossing Powder (it’s really just equal parts Gold and Silver Embossing Powders mixed together).

The card base is Berry Burst card stock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”. First you will need to use the Embossing Buddy across the front of the card, stamp the largest swirl stamp in VersaMark ink, sprinkle and shake off the champagne embossing powder, and then set with the heat tool. On a piece of Whisper White card stock you will want to use the Embossing Buddy again, stamp the bird image in VersaMark ink, sprinkle and shake off the champagne embossing powder, and then set with the heat tool. For the feather image behind the bird, first stamp in Blushing Bride ink and then sponge Berry Burst ink around the top with Sponge Daubers. The image is then cut out with the 2nd largest Oval Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Champagne Foil Sheet is cut out with the 2nd largest scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits. These two are adhered together and then popped on top of the card stock with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a piece of ½” Finely Woven Ribbon in Berry Burst tied in a bow with some Pearl Basic Jewels.

I just love the colors of this card and here is an alternative that I made because at first I wasn’t sure if I was going to like how the embossing turned out on the Berry Burst card stock. Which one is your favorite?
