For the Birds at BBTB2

Hello Friends!

It’s Monday and time for another Bitten by the Bug 2 design team project!  This week the challenge is to make a project using a Cricut bird cut.  I used this beautiful peacock from French Manor on some cards I made last summer, but I decided to use it again with a little different style this time.  The fancy background shape is from Elegant Edges.  I was going for elegant and beautiful and I think this card fits the bill (or beak LOL)!


I changed the design a little in Design Space by adding an extra layer and hiding some of the cuts using the Contour tool.  That way I was able to have three colors in my peacock instead of only two as in the original design.  Once you work with the Contour tool a bit, you will be continually thinking of how you can change your designs.  The sky is truly the limit!

Please stop by the Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge blog and check out the wonderful BIRD projects created by the design team.  You are always invited to spread your wings and share your art with us!  Simply link up your own blog or photo at an online photo gallery.

Have an awesome day and CHOOSE to be happy!   Laurie

  1. Very elegant! Peacocks are my favorite bird. Reminds me of the feathers my nieces like to braid into their hair sometimes…colorful and pretty!

  2. I just love peacocks – this one looks really easy to put together, yet so elegant with that nice frame. It just made me think of the peacock feather earrings I used to wear as a teenager — a long time ago. haha


  3. What a beautiful card Laurie! I love the peacock that you chose, she makes for a very elegant card. The colors, papers and die cuts are all just perfect. You knocked this challenge out the park! Hugs, Brenda

  4. This peacock is truly beautiful. I love the colors of the peacock and the background shape. Beautiful card!
