Peace

Hi Bloggers.

Continuing with the Christmas theme, here's today's card -

For the background, I inked up the Creative Expressions Frosty Swirls Embossing Folder with Perfect Medium and ran it through the Grand Calibur with a piece of Milk Card. The ink transferred to the deboss pattern. I then brushed Enchanted Gold Cosmic Shimmer Mica Powder over the surface.

I cut the Spellbinders Angel of Peace Die out of Vintage Gold Card. I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Oval Majesty Die Set out of Milk Card and inked through the die with Antique Linen Distress Ink using a Smoothie.

I cut the Spellbinders Peace Strip Die out of Vintage Gold Card and added it to the bottom section of my card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream 8mm Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler and a Precision Probe.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  9. Love the layout on this card, although I am not keen on the word die but that is just me! The other dies and embossing folder are very effective.

  17. Another beautiful card Julia. The vintage gold card is a welcome addition to the card stash producing beautiful elements without to much bling.

  18. Wonderful card Julia. The background is so pretty and the angel is gorgeous. I haven't got this year's angel but I have the one Sue brought out last year which will work just as well. Pat x

    1. Actually, Pat, Sue's Angel, while absolutely gorgeous, is bigger than this one. It's a Die D-Lite and she measures just 6.5 x 8.8cm. Julia

    A lovely card, great colour. I love the angel and Majestic Oval die, sorry not a fan of the peace die but a great card to copy with a substitute. Thanks for sharing.

    Best wishes
