Peacock Feathers Easel Card

Easel cards are perfect for a special occasion. They are great fun to make & not anything like a traditional shop bought card. Not everyone is fond of Peacock feathers, but I love them. Their colours are rich & gorgeous and the shapes are fascinating. These are shop bought so nothing as vivid as the ones you can collect when peacocks moult.  When I first saw the Perfectly Paisley Cuttlebug embossing folder I thought of peacock's feathers, so had to use it on this card. I've coloured the ribbon with a Turquoise Promarker to match the feathers, the beautiful Bo Bunny Vintage Double Dot cardstock and one of my favourite Distress Inks, Peacock Feathers. How could I not use it! A bit of swirly bling & space to add the special date in. Hey Presto a wedding card (well the next one will be quicker, this one had a lot of will I put it there, no there, no there).
