Steppin' Bohemian Peacock

The new theme over at Cut It Up is One Step at a other words we want to see a step card!  

I had a lot of fun with my Cricut on this one since I designed a step card cut in DS, used the scoring tool and put the writing tool into play!  Let me explain...

I hate to measure!  I hate to hand cut!  Yes, I'll do it if I'm forced to go that direction, but the truth is I'll work twice as long to create the cut in Design Space and let the machine do the work!  ;)  I started with a rectangle and added 2 very, very skinny (.011 width) rectangles.  I then brought in seven (7) score lines and placed them.  I selected all of that and hit the attach button.  Instant center step card!  

I used the "write" tool to make the feathers on the front of the bird instead of cutting them.  I used a Cricut Silver Pen and then went over the centers of them with a gold gel pen.  I'm not sure why, but my camera had a difficult time capturing that detail without blurring it!  

This fun peacock cut and gorgeous digital designer paper are all  from our sponsor this month ~ Fleurette Bloom.
