A Wish for Peace


So far I think my favorite Christmas set is this A Wish for Peace that is in the new Stampin' Up! idea book & catalog. I'm waiting for the sets from the Holiday Mini to arrive and then I'm sure to have a new favorite!

The card with the Dove was completed using Basic Gray cardstock and ink. I used the Itty Bitty Backgrounds to stamp the bottom portion of the white underlying panel. I then added a slight touch of color by using the Mellow Moss Taffeta Ribbon before mounting the main stamped panel. The Dove is mounted on Dimensionals for added depth and of course I had to use Crystal Stickles. You know I'm going to Archivers today and may have to add Stickles to my list.

On the Second card Holiday Treasures Designer Paper was used for the background, Old Olive ink and cardstock, Crystal Stickles and that terrific Real Red Striped Ribbon. I made use of two of the new punches - Wide Oval and Scalloped Square for the saying that is also a new stamp set Punches Three which is a level one Hostess Set. Hope you like them.
