Dove of Hope- Happy New Year

Hello and Happy New Year! I do not think I am alone in being extremely excited to leave 2020 behind! I truly hope for a much better 2021! On that note I decided to create a New Year’s card with the Dove of Hope stamp set by Stampin’ Up!® and it is a Fun Fold!

The Dove of Hope stamp set by Stampin’ Up!® is another one of my favorite stamps from the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog. I love the versatility of the dove which could be used all year long for wishing a Happy New Year, religious celebrations (baptism, communion, confirmation), weddings and to just share some peace, joy and love.

The Dove of Hope stamp set is retiring but is still available until January 4, 2021. You may click HERE to purchase it. I also used the “Happy New Year” sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set which is in the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog HERE

Measurements

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches with a score line at 3 1/4 inches; Pacific Point CS: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches and 7/8 x 2 7/8 inches; Coastal Cabana CS: 3 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches; the Brights Designer Series Paper* (DSP): 1) Coastal Cabana DSP: 3 x 5 1/4 inches and 2) Pacific Point DSP: 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches; and Whisper White CS: two at 3 x 3 inches and 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches. (*find out how you can get this paper at the end of the blog)

Stamping

Start off by stamping the dove in Pacific Point ink onto one of the 3 x 3 inch Whisper White CS. Add some snowflakes in Coastal Cabana ink. Some of the snowflakes are full strength and others are Stamped Off. This helps to add dimension to your card.

Switching back to the Pacific Point ink, stamp the “Peace Joy Love” sentiment onto the 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Whisper White CS.

In order to use just the part of the sentiment that says “And A Happy New Year” you will need a Pacific Point Stampin’ Write Marker. Color the bottom part of the sentiment, huff on it to moisten it a little, and stamp onto the other 3 x 3 inch Whisper White CS.

Putting it all together

Starting with the inside of the card, adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Pacific Point CS to the inside panel of the Whisper White CS card base. Now adhere the 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch Pacific Point DSP to the right hand side.

To finish the inside, adhere the 3 x 3 inch Whisper White CS with the “Happy New Year” sentiment as shown.

Moving on to the card front, adhere the Coastal Cabana DSP to the Coastal Cabana CS. Then adhere the Coastal Cabana card piece to the front of the Whisper White CS card base.

To complete the card front, adhere the dove card piece to the 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch Pacific Point CS and the “Peace Joy Love” sentiment to the 7/8 x 2 7/8 inch Pacific Point CS.

Taking card to place the adhesive only on the left hand side, adhere the dove card piece to the card front. Be mindful of the placement so that the white panel underneath does not show around the dove card piece.

Lastly, apply adhesive to the left hand side of the sentiment and adhere it to the card front.

And Viola! Here’s hoping for more Peace, Joy and Love in 2021!

Dove of Hope and Itty Bitty Christmas Stampin’ Up!®

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!
