Double Fun with Peonies – video

Glimmering Peonies

Hi Creative Friends,

Today I have a card design to share with you that features beautiful peony flowers in a stunning floral display. It is the Glimmering Peonies by Spellbinders.

You can hot-foil this floral spray in any color you like and get different looks just by varying the cardstock and the hot-foil color. For a super fast card, just hot-foil on colored cardstock. Or, you can hot-foil and color it using your favorite medium. I chose to watercolor mine so I used hot-pressed watercolor paper.
