Calm Christmas

Well we finished up our second set of Christmas classes last night!  This seemed to be everyone’s favorite!  I love the colors! And the embossing always makes images look so elegant! I used the Calm Christmas stamp set from the Holiday Catalog to stamp all of the images on this card. I think it’s my favorite stamp set from the holiday catalog, probably because of the elegance of the dove.
To make this card, start out with a piece of smoky slate cardstock for your base.  Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock. Stamp the “peace on earth” sentiment on the bottom right side using Island Indigo ink which is a darker blue. Next, heat emboss the dove, in white, just above where you stamped the sentiment. Once embossed, sponge a bit of coastal cabana ink on and around the dove. The ink will not stick to the white embossed image so feel free to sponge over it…that way it gets into the bits of white cardstock that show through the embossed image. Cut a 1 x 4 inch piece of the Winter Frost Designer Paper and secure it just above the embossed dove. Then embellish with rhinestones!  Super simple design! Enjoy!
