Peaceful Season




Hello friends!  I hope you are all doing well!  

I have a Christmas card to share with you today, made with this month's new release at Our Daily Bread designs, O Christmas Tree This card started off as just an experiment.  I wanted to do some embossing with this image so I grabbed a scrap of SU! NotQuite Navy from my scrap box and stamped with White Embossing Powder.  Well... then I liked the white on blue so much I decided to cut it out with a Spellbinders Floral Oval frame and use it somehow.  The card kind of developed from there as I had Spellbinder's Labels 8 out on my work table and decided to go ahead and do a shaped card using Labels 8 and Decorative Labels 8.  For the sentiment I just heat embossed the Peace sentiment from the set on a Spellbinders Fancy Tags 1 "inside" and cut the outside from Flourishes White, which is what the rest of the card is cut from.  I added Glossy Accents to the ornaments and some gems to the sentiment panel, and a sheer silver edged bow to the top and that's it.  It's quite flat, mailable and quick!  At Christmas, we all are searching for quick yet still something special to give to friends and family.  I think this one qualifies. 


I am entering this in the following challenges:
