3. Die-cut all the elements to create the peacock including approximately 15 of the pink feathers.
4. Gently curl each of the feathers to add dimension and attach them one at a time starting at the base of the tail and overlapping them as you go.
5. Gently curl the three parts of the wing and layer together before mounting in place using adhesive foam pads.
6. Stamp or print your sentiment and trim to size before adding to the card.

using adhesive foam pads.
