Foil Laser Cut card layer.
Dry emboss the Pretty Peacock layer with the Woodland Embossing Folder.
Adhere Forever Gold Laser-Cut layer to front of Pretty Peacock Embossed Layer.
Put a strip of ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim across the middle of the embossed layer, secure with Stamp n Seal on the back.
Using dimensionals, put this layer onto your card front.
Stamp using Pretty Peacock Ink:
1. Stamp chosen branch/leaves onto scrap Whisper White Cardstock.
2. Stamp sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock.
3. Stamp inside mat with this branch/leaves using 4th generation ink (which means stamp off 3 times before stamping on cardstock.)
4. Stamp onto envelope, I stamped branch/leaves in the lower right corner without reinking. I did the same on the flap.
Using dies in the suite, cut out all the stamped branches/leave and and two branches/leaves out of the gold foil. I did two different die to see which I liked best..
Use the second smaller stitched rectangle die to cut out the sentiment..
Build your focal layer, dry fit first so you know placement and the amount. I decided to stay with the ferny looking gold branches/leaves. Adhere pieces with glue dots.
Add the strip of designer series paper to the side of your mat layer and adhere to your card.
