I've been trying to get started on my Christmas cards .... and here is my first set. I tried a variety of ideas using my new set from Papertrey Ink - Peace Be Still, and after several attempts (4 days of trial and error!!) this is the one that I liked the most. Once I finished the 'prototype', the others came together within 1 hour!
Yeah .... so now I have a set of 5 cards for my stash.
I used a colour scheme of white, a light blue-purple (indigo) and dark purple.
I cut the dove from white felt and added a small black pearl for the eye. The two snowflakes were made by stamping Versamark on one of the snowflake die cut from the Peace Be Still set and embossed with Iridescent Ice from Stampin'Up. A Martha Stewart snowflake punch was used to make two additional snowflakes that were glued to the white die cuts.
A sentiment from Holiday Wishes was stamped in purple onto the matching background card stock and then mounted onto white card stock.The Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder was used to add some detail to the indigo card stock and then it was sanded to reveal the white paper core. Pearls were added to the sentiment panel and the snowflakes for a final touch.
The inside of the card uses another sentiment from Holiday Wishes and a snowflake from Peace Be Still.
