Instructions: The finished card size is 21 cm x 14.8 cm. Take one of the A4 Naturals-white and fold this in half. Using the bone folder sharpen the fold. This will be your card base. Find the paper in the HCDP1-252 Peacock Paisley Paper Collection with the green background and feather print on it, cut from this paper the matting, 20.8 cm x 14.4 cm. From the same printed-paper, on the reverse side find and cut out the sentiment "Special Wishes". Use the paper-distressing tool to ravel and fray the edges of both cut papers. Apply Double Dots to the back of the sentiment and put aside till later.

 Adhere the matting to the card base with double-sided tape. Cut from the remaining A4 card, 13.5 cm x 19.8 cm. This will be your card front. The stamping method: Use the pen makers, water mister, HCPC3659 Peacock Paisley Cling Stamp Set and Stamp Positioner Kit. To stamp the image on the card front and to get the watercolor effect, apply color to the stamp using the markers, then spray stamp generously with the water mister. Stamp image onto the paper, use the Stamp Positioner Kit to get the right alignment, repeat again in mirror image. This will give you your watercolor background.

 Stamp again, a little shy of the image, this time using the gold embossing powder. Stamping a little shy will give you full exposure of the background color. When the stamping is done, ravel and fray the edges with the distressing tool. Adhere the card front to the matting paper. With the remaining A4 card and HCPC3660 Peacock Swirls Cling Stamp Set the Peacock with the gold embossing powder. Color this image in with the makers and water brush. When dry, fussy cut the Peacock. Apply a few layers of Double Dots  to the back so it will be high enough for the flowers to be tucked a little under the bird. Adhere the Peacock to the center of the background stamping.

 Make the flowers with the HCPC 3656 Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp Set and matching HCD1-760 Delightful Daisy Die. 1st embossing with gold on to the vellum paper, die cut, then color from the back side of the embossed vellum flowers with the maker pens. To create height in the flowers, cut into the flower from the side of a petal to the flower center. From this cut, glue one petal on top of another. This will give the flower a haul shape. Adhere the bling dots to the flower centers. Place and adhere the completed flowers under and to the side of the Peacock.

 Place a few bling dots next to some of the flowers. Add the sentiment to the bottom left of the birds tail. To finish, apply stickles to the flower centers and bling dots.
