That 'French Manor' Peacock!

Several years ago, PC launched the Cricut Circle and sent all the members an exclusive cart called 'French Manor.'  THE most popular cut was, without a doubt, this peacock.  It was everywhere!  Now it's my turn to show you my version of  'the peacock.'   (My family will tell you that I'm always a little late to the parade!)

I used the DCWV Shimmer stack and embossed the background to give it an East Indian look.  The center stair step card has been around forever too, but is the perfect card form to use when you want to put special focus on the image.  Wouldn't this card take on a whole different look with brighter background papers?  If I didn't have to put Master J's toys away and clean the bathrooms before my sister comes tomorrow, I'd head right up to the craftroom.  LOL!

The FCCB challenge this week is to feature a bird somewhere on your project.  Go take a look at what the DT came up with.  Love that Art Nouveau hummingbird!

Thanks for visiting with me today!  : ) Christine

Flying Witch Easel Card

Have you seen the wonderful 'Floating Easel' cards that are popping up on Pinterest lately?  I was sure there was a way to make one using a cut from one of the gazillion Cricut cartridges I own and here it is!

I used a card cut from French Manor for the base and folded it into the traditional easel card.  I added the frame cut from the same key and secured the witch with fishing line stolen from DH.
I also used the Monster Bash, Chic and Scary, and Paper Trimmings cartridges and now you know why it is SO important to have a gazillion cartridges!  LOL!

It was difficult to photograph the card since I kept getting so many confusing shadows.  But, it did look amazingly spooky!  Thanks for visiting today!  : ) Christine
