Peacock

Boss's Day - peacock

So I had a couple last minute Boss’s Day cards (Monday Oct 16, 17) to make yesterday (she emailed Thursday asking for cards on Friday…good thing I was off!) The lady liked a peacock card I did in May for Mother’s Day but she wanted a saying on the front. So I made a new card with the same image (printed just a little smaller to fit on 5 x 7 card with different design). The lift category in the October Inspirational Card Challenge is to lift yourself! So I went looking in my gallery to see if any of my cards would allow for a large image and a saying on the front. Again I wanted to keep the focus on the beautiful image. I found the card BirdBrain Birthday Candle (which is inspired by MojoBella #25 Sketch)

I did print a second copy and cut out the peacock so I could pop dot it on the original to make it look like the peacock was really on the leaves.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Pretty Peacock – Doodle Pantry (no longer in business)
Inks: pre-colored digital stamp printed on a Canon Inkjet printer
Cardstock: Bazzill (Raven, Pumpkin Patch, Sour Apple, PaulyPoo, Glow, White)
Accents/Tools: Cricut, Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge, Cutter bee scissors, EK Success 1/16 pop dots

Peacock

So I apparently forgot to post this when I made this for a Mother’s Day order! (I discovered this while making a second version with this image…see next post) This was for a lady’s grandmother who loves birds and she requested a peacock this time. I wanted the image to be the focus so I made it pretty large which kept the design of the card simple. I did print a second copy and cut out the peacock so I could pop dot it on the original to make it look like the peacock was really on the leaves.

Wine Birthday and Friendship

I had an order for a birthday card for a lady that is in her 70’s with the following inside: “Wine improves with age —
We like it more the older we get!”
This is what I came up with!
I sent a photo this morning and she loved it!

I used MOJObella sketch #25 as my inspiration.

wine-with-friends

So I realized in looking through my cards I made this at the beginning of 2016 and forgot to post it. This was for a lady that liked a tea/coffee card I did with the same sentiment  but wanted it to say wine. I used the same image, Birdbrain wine, by From the Heart Stamps and just left the bird off.

I can’t remember what sketch I used but if I find it I will update my post.
