Perfect Peacock

My favorite day of the week is not Monday, because it just so hard to get my “self” motivated. “Self” thinks Mondays were made for lounging and lingering over that 2nd cup of coffee. Anyway, after much procrastinating, I have made a Peacock card for todays late post! Better late than never!

It is so hard to take a picture and have the embossing show up really good. This is the 9th picture I have taken today of this card. I wanted to use the 5/8″ Gold Satin Ribbon on a card, after all I have had it for almost 2 months, just sitting on my shelf. Here is how I made today’s card.
I used Velum card stock, after rubbing with my embossing buddy, I stamped my Peacock in VersaMark. Next I poured Gold Embossing powder on the image and heated it with my Embossing Gun. After it was cooled, I flipped it over and using my Blendabilities (Old Olive, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, and Calypso Coral Assortment pens) added color to the image.
Next, I attached the image to SU Transfer Adhesive and cut it out with the largest Oval Framelit. Then I cut a Bermuda Bay oval with the same framelit.
I off set the velum card stock on the Bermuda Bay oval by snipping off a little on the right side so that when I attached my ribbon you would still be able to to see the Bermuda Bay. The card base is Soft Sky card stock, embossed with an embossing folder that is retired. I love the delicate lines in it and thought it was perfect for this card. Last, I added the Gold Satin ribbon, which ties so easily, and even if you have to redo it, will not wrinkle!
My kind of Perfect Ribbon!
