Peace Dove

Hello!  I hope you’re having a fine Monday, or whatever day you happen to be checking in.   I seem to run perpetually behind, even though I’m now retired.    However, I can say with this card I’m eight cards ahead for Christmas.  I’ve made a few this year and (amazingly) had a few left over from last year.  Guess I was on a roll.

  • I found this beautiful Cheery Lynn Peace Dove at Dies R Us and fell instantly in love.   As I write this it is unavailable, but have a look at these beauties, some of which are very similar.  I typed “dove” (minus the quotation marks) into the search field at Dies R Us and came up with a fabulous selection.
  • I started with the 4 1/2” x 6” embossed card base (Sizzix Ornament Set #2), then layered an older Spellbinders circle die followed by a Cheery Lynn Twiggy Wreath.  The wreath is covered with snowflake sequins so there’s not much visible, but perhaps you can see a few twigs here and there.   It’s a Halloween wreath, but it sure doesn’t look like it here, does it?
  • The “Peace” is stamped on the smallest cut from Impression Obsession Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames. I know, I know, I’m using the heck out of this die, but since it cuts six frames at once you’ve always got something to work with.

About that blue circle:
  • Adhered the cardstock to a square cut from a Scor-Tape sheet (double sided sticky).
  • Cut the circle with die.
  • Peeled off one side of the backing and adhered to card.
  • Peeled off the other side and sprinkled with micro-fine glitter (amazing stuff you just have to see in real life to fully appreciate.)

There’s a new Dies R Us Challenge starting tomorrow and some lucky participant will win a gift voucher.   I’m happy to say we have a good turn out for our challenges.  All you have to do is follow the theme (lots of flexibility) and use a die cut, then link it up.   Easy!

Thanks so much for dropping in! I hope you enjoyed your visit.
