It is always hard for me to determine my absolute favorite anything. There are just so many options, how can I possibly choose! I don't know if this is my favorite, but it would have to be in my top 10! I will be making some more things from this set, because there are so many gorgeous images in this set to explore!
The stamp set is from Gina K Designs and it is called Pretty as a Peacock! I stamped the square image showing the peacock feather tip in three colors (Papertrey Ink New Leaf, Memento Danube Blue, and Memento Sweet Plum) on white cardstock. I used a 1-1/2" square punch to punch out the images. I added a little glue from my glue pen to the center of the feathers and added a little glitter for some shimmer. The card base is Papertrey Ink Smokey Shadow. I used my corner rounder to round all four corners of the card base. I stamped the sentiment (also from Pretty as a Peacock) directly on the card base using Papertrey Ink Fresh Snow ink. I then took my ruler and lined it up and using my Signo white pen drew the lines on either side of the sentiment.
Another reason why I love this card so much is because it is clean and simple. Whenever another crafter asks me for advice on making cards, I always tell them to keep it simple. Don't be afraid of empty space. The empty space will draw your eye to your focal point. There are a lot of crafters out there that pile on the embellishments to the point where it is just too busy. Whenever I make a card and realize that I don't like it, often the problem is that I added too much. So keep that in mind, especially the next time you are struggling with a card!
