Christmas Dove – Let There Be Peace On Earth

It’s that time of the year where I begin making different Christmas cards to try and determine which one I will mass produce for 2020. Most of the cards I’ve made use Hero Arts Christmas Rose Background stamp. It is lovely and looks amazing with gold embossing powder on a deep red cardstock. I took red Copic Markers to add some depth to the poinsettias. Once it was completed I cut it down using a Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Rectangle and adhered it to a side folding deep red cardbase.

For this card I cut a gold mirror dove using Penny Black’s The Gift. It was also cut from sticky back foam and adhered to the center of the card. The sentiment was stamped on the same red cardstock and embossed gold. It was cut down using a Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Label and a thin gold mirror border was added to the back to help it stand out on the card front. It was adhered to under the dove with foam tape.

Geo It’s Your Day

I got Simon Says Stamp It’s Your Day die and cut it from gold glitter cardstock. I planned to use it on another card, but it just didn’t look right. I went through my dies to try and find a background that would well with sentiment die and settled on the Altenew Layered Geo Cover B die. I cut it three times from 80# cardstock and adhered them together with spray adhesive and then used liquid glue to adhere the background to a top folding cardbase. I added white cardstock behind the sentiment die and adhered it to the center of the Geo Cover Die. It needed a little something more to make it more celebratory so I added one of the balloons from Simon Says Stamp Balloon Bouquet. A quick and easy card to create.
