Welcome to day 13 of my 15-Day Christmas Card Challenge! Today’s card is made mostly with dies and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. The sentiments are from the Dove of Hope and the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp sets. The Dove of Hope is in the 2020 Stampin Up! Mini Catalog and the Itty Bitty Christmas is in the 2020-21 Annual Catalog
The dove from the Detailed Dove Dies is definitely the star of the show for this card. The equally elegant layers for the background are from the Ornate Layers Dies.
These Ornate Layers Dies are simply amazing and allow so many possibilities for fancy detailed cards. They are available from the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog HERE.
Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches; Whisper White CS: 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 inch Ornate Layer, the Detailed Dove body and 2 wings, and 1/2 x 3 inch strip; Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper (DSP): 3 1/8 x 4 5/8 inch Ornate Layer; and a double strand bow with the 1/4 inch Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon.
Using the Seaside Spray ink, stamp the sentiment “May your season be filled with all the wonder and blessings of Christmas” from the Dove of Hope stamp set onto the inside panel of the Whisper White CS card base. Stamp the sentiment “Peace & Happiness” from Itty Bitty Christmas on the 1/2 x 3 inch strip of Whisper White CS.
Trim the sentiment “Peace & Happiness” as shown.
Adhere the back wing onto the body of the dove. Now adhere the front wing. When gluing smaller parts, I use the Silicon Craft Sheet to keep the glue from getting on my table.
I have found that cutting the Foam Adhesive Sheets into 1/4 inch strips is a great way to add dimension on a large card piece.
Adhere the Whisper White CS Ornate Layer frame to the front panel of the Whisper White CS card base. Be sure the inside sentiment is in the right place. Adhere the Feels Like Frost DSP Ornate Layer to the card front. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the dove and the sentiment.
Adhere the Seaside Spray bow and Viola! you have an elegant Christmas card to wish some Peace & Happiness to someone special.
Thanks for visiting today. I hope you have mailed off your cards! I am still finishing up the letter I put inside the cards before I can mail them off. I intend to be finished by Monday. Wish me luck!
