Peacock --The amazing color!

Last year Close to My Heart introduced Peacock as a new color in the Enchantment pallet.  It has been a wonderful color!  It makes a great base for masculine cards and I know that so many of you struggle in making guy birthday card.  Please take note!  Peacock is your friend!

This card was created last spring.  (I know, I've been terrible about blogging this year).

I paired Peacock cardstock with Glacier, Teal Glitter paper (now retired), White Shimmer Trim and Whisper Extra Thick Twine.  

Here's a tip:  When you're laying rows of extra thick twine, use a bit of adhesive to hold the twine down, even if you're planning to staple it.  It's like having an extra hand to hold everything together.  
I also did this first, before adhering the cardstock to the card base.  

The shimmer trim spans all the way across the card so it's wider than the 4" wide cardstock.  It hides any differences in width and can be trimmed to fit after it's adhered to the card.  I'm all about simple and not fussy cardmaking!

Ink Pad & Cardstock are essential.  The Shin Han marker is one of my favorites too!

That's all for today!
