Colorful Peacock

This is one of those love and hate things.. I love, love, love using metallic cardstock on my cards.. but.. hate, hate, hate taking photos of these cards.. I know, it's just me not knowing enough about the photography and the lights.. But for me, the cards made with metallic cardstock never look as good in the photos as they do in real life :-(

This is one of the cards for my new upcoming "Magenta Style" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. This class is scheduled for:

Tuesday, June 9th, 12 pm to 3 pm
Sunday, June 21st, 12 pm to 3 pm

Please bring foam tape (pop-up dots) and your favorite adhesive to the class. All other supplies will be provided.

$30.00, 10 participants

Class Kits will be available until June 21st, $35.00 each.

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up for the class and/or purchase the kit/s.

This card measures 6" x 6". I took a few photos from different angles to try to show you how beautiful this card really is..

This absolutely gorgeous Peacock stamp is from Magenta, I do not know the name of this stamp but here is the number from the package - C37271-N. The Peacock was heat embossed in black and colored with the Pearlascent Watercolors. The white highlights were done with Smooch. There are gold rhinestones in the centers of the flowers.

The corner fligree stamp is also from Magenta, the number for this stamp is 14122-I. I've tried different inks and embossing for this corner, and have decided on the green Stazon.. The beautiful corners are there, but they do not overpower the card and let the Peacock take the center stage..

Metallic cardstock is by Bazzill. I used two colors on this card, gold and patina.

All the supplies used to design this card are available for purchase at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. If you do not live in the area, you can place your order over the phone and it will be shipped to you, 408-736-9151.

The close-up photo - DUDE - WOW.

I suck at the good lightbox photos too. I just can't get the right angles on my work lights.
