Warmest Greetings

It is an honor to be guest designing for the Peace on Earth Christmas challenge and I had fun figuring out what to create. My inspiration came from the bottom right photo as I liked the idea of a vertical look and embossing in the background. As well something I’ve seen on Pinterest also helped me with this idea. I used a StampinUp folder to give me the embossed background. Long before some of the embellishments and stamps we use today were common, I bought some items that were ready made such as flowers and the pearl spray that I’ve used here. Once it was attached I added some die cut stars which were cut with an infinity set from Hero Arts. Glitter paper from Scrapbook.com and a mirror gold scrap was used for the stars and then I added dimensionals to attach them as you see. The little bird is a CTMH stamp that I’ve had for ages and once coloured using Ohuhu pens, I fussy cut then added to the top of the star. The sentiment if from Divinity Designs and the little embellishments from my stash. Another card ready for Christmas is the bonus here. Hope you like it.

  1. What a lovely card. The pearl spray works great with the tree EF and is perfect behind the darling bird. Congrats on your guest designing spot.

    1. It was such fun to make this card as a G.D. I’ve had house guests for a few days and I had completely forgotten about the blog so it is a good job the uploading worked as scheduled. Thanks for the comments.

    1. The advantage of the move last year means I keep finding little surprises as I sort through my stuff. I had forgotten about the sprig of pearls but it was perfect for this card. Thanks for the love.

    1. Thanks so much Darlene. It was fun creating something for the challenge from a different perspective than usual – at least for me.
