Peace & Joy

Here's a Christmas card I made today.  First, I embossed kraft cardstock twice with a branch border, stamped the sentiment in green, and affixed decorative snowflake tape.  Then I stamped doves in green on a white scrap and attached with foam tape.  Lastly, I embellished with two foam snowflakes and clear gems.


Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  Doves (The Artful Stamper), Sentiment (All Night Media)
  • Ink:  Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy
  • Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Just My Type Borders
  • Cardstock:  Recollections (white), Stampin' Up! (kraft)    
  • Snowflakes:  Dollarama     Decorative Tape:  Duck     Gems:  Jo-Ann's
  • Sketch:  MFP Speedy TV (see below)
