Peace on Earth

Hello! Happy Monday! I thought I'd pop in with a quick card that I made to add to my Christmas stash. Christmas is rapidly approaching, so I decided that it's time to make some simple cards.

This one came together rather quickly since I had already made the top layer several weeks ago. I started with a piece of yupo paper and a handful of alcohol inks to create my background. Once it dried, I used the Nordic Snowflake Stencil (from the Taylored Expressions October release) and white pigment ink to stencil on the snowflakes. I set this aside to dry and forgot about it... literally, until now!

I wanted to keep this simple, so I stamped the sentiment from Handlettered Holiday onto a piece of Bristol cardstock with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink, sprinkled on some diamond embossing powder, then heat set it. I use Stormy Sky and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks around the sentiment, keeping some white in the center to highlight the sentiment. I created the window by die cutting the largest circle from Inside Scallop Circle Stacklets.

After adding my panel to an A2 card base, I finished my card of with some clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful week!
