You won’t believe how quick and easy this card was! Today was the first time Ann let me pick out a set that will be in the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog that is being released in a few weeks.

And it’s all Susan’s fault.

You see, Susan drops Ann a line when she likes the card that I design. She liked the sneak peak we did at the new Rococo Rose color that we featured in this post. So Ann asked her what color she’d like to see next.

And here it is, in Pretty Peacock.

Card for a Friend in Pretty Peacock

And then, of course, I had to think about my gal pal, Doodles, who like things double embossed. I’m going to share something with two different embossing folders, but when you’re in a hurry, a double run of the Subtles Embossing Folder is perfect.

Card for a Friend in Pretty Peacock

Can you tell how we did it? We only used 3 colors!

  • Pretty Peacock will be released June 4th.
  • Call Me Clover is from the 2018-20 IN Color Collection.
  • Daffodil Delight is from out main color collection.

Here Are Tips on How to Make a Card

  • We stamped the outline stamp in Pretty Peacock.
  • Then we moved the color around with the Blender Pen.
  • We did the same with the leaves that were stamped in Call Me Clover.
  • When it was totally dry, she ran it through the Big Shot with the Subtles Dynamic Embossing Folder. First one way and then a quarter turn before she ran it through again.

I need to tell you a secret of what she did before she did that.

When Ann was finishing up the flower centers in Daffodil Delight, she somehow got Daffodil Delight ink on the white cardstock. Oh no!

What Do You Think She Did Then?

That’s the perfect time to bring out the Basic Rhinestones! Of course, she waited until she was all done before she put them on.
