Beautiful Peacock Elegant Birthday Card Title

What better way to make an elegant birthday card than to use an elegant beautiful peacock as it’s focal point? The peacock is a magnificent bird, and its vivid, iridescent plumage is stunning. It makes a beautiful focal point for any type of card you need to make.  The peacock on this card  is from the new Beautiful Peacock stamp set. You can find it on page 7 of the 2018 SALE-A-BRATION Catalog and is available for a limited time only.

This elegant birthday card was very easy to make. Details are listed below.


Peacocks are traditionally blue and green but I decided to change things up a bit. I stayed with just two colors, Pool Party and Calypso Coral.

First I stamped the body of the peacock and fussy cut it out. Using the layering circles thinlit dies I cut out two scalloped circles in my two colors and layered them behind the peacock tail. Before assembling the card I stamped the flourishing tail at angles on both sides of a Pool Party ribbon. I used Stampin’ Dimentionals to give my peacock focal piece some depth. For a finishing touch I added clear enamal dots and a bow.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful You stamp set.

My great nephew’s 2nd birthday was this weekend. And of course I wanted to make a 2nd birthday card that was special and one of kind just for him. In this post I’m going to share with you how to make a 2nd birthday card using Stampin’ Up!’s Number of Years stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Number of Years stamp set 2nd birthday card

It’s always so much fun being with my family.  I especially love it when it involves a party. My niece invited everyone over to her house for a fun time of cake and watching the delight in the eyes of a two year old as he opens all the presents from his family and friends. These gatherings are also very special when father is able join.

I sell Stampin’ Up! card making supplies so it only seemed right to make my great nephew’s 2nd birthday card myself. The Number of Years stamp set makes it easy to make a card for any specific year birthday. I made a card back in November of last year for my sister’s Grandmother-in-law’s 95th birthday you can see HERE

Card Details

Before I assembled my card I created a background by sponging Lemon Lime Twist for grass and Pool Party for sky on a piece of Whisper White card stock. I stamped “look who’s turning” in Night of Navy. Next I glued a number 2 cut from Daper Denim cardstock under that.  I fussy cut the raccoon from the Birthday Memories paper and lifted him up on Stampin’ Dimentionals.

There are not very many people that live into their ninties, but I have a wonderful lady in my life that has.  She is my sister’s grandmother-in-law and the sweetest person you could ever know.  This month she is turning 95 and she has more energy than most people I know. My sister asked me to design a special card for her and this is what I came up with.
