I am so very excited to announce that my Holiday Pre-Ordere finally came. Seriously, though…I am so excited and I just can’t hide it… My Card was Picked by the Fab Friday Design Team as one of their Fab Fave!!!! This is a first for me and I am over the moon happy to have been picked. Check out the other Fab Fave cards at Fab Friday.
The first of my Holiday Pre-Orders did come in yesterday. When I got home from work it was waiting for me!!! Yahoooo….So naturally, I had to make a card with my new goodies to share with you. What did I get you ask. Well, just a few things, including Dove of Peace. Mark your calendars September 1st is when the Holiday Catalog goes Live!!!!
I am just overjoyed with the selection of products in the Holiday Catalog.
I will be placing another Pre-Order next week
So, I will have even more to share soon.
Dove of Peace is a wonderful bohemian approach to the Christmas Season. After using this stamp, I know it will be in my Favorites for many years to come… I love how it stamps. I love the flower sketches with in the dove. I love the Bible Verse. I see using this stamp for more than just Christmas.
Here are the Details:
- The card base is Mint Macaron card stock cut at 5 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4 inches.
- Cut a layer from Daffodil Delight to 5 3/8 inches by 4 1/8 inches. Adhere the Daffodil Delight layer to the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Dimentionals
- Cut a layer from Shimmery White (I only recently discovered the wonderful joy of having this fine paper in my arsenal of supplies…AKA it’s a new favorite and I use it every day now!!!!) to 5 1/4 inches by 4 inches. Use sponge dabbers , ink , and a little water to color the Shimmery White card stock. I used Soft Sky and Mint Macaron. Start at the top with Soft Sky and work towards the bottom. Add Mint Macaron from the bottom and work towards the top! Allow this layer to dry! I know it is hard to do…Go do something else and come back. Or make your other layers of the card while you wait. Check and see if you like. I added several layers. So this may take a few times to get desired darkness.
- When the Shimmery White layer is dry Use the Softly Falling Textured Impression Embossing Folder and the Big Shot to Emboss the layer.
- Adhere the “watercolor” layer to the Daffodil Delight layer using multipurpose glue.
- On a 1 by 3 inch piece of Shimmery White card stock stamp the sentiment using Staz On ink. Use the sponge dabbers, Daffodil Delight ink, and a little water color over the sentiment to make the paper yellow. Allow this to completely Dry
- Cut a Soft Sky card stock piece to 3 1/4 inches by 1 1/4 inches. Glue the yellow layer to the Soft Sky layer.
- Stamp the Dove using Staz On ink. Color in the dove using Daffodil Delight, Soft Sky, and Mint Macaron.
- Fussy Cut the Dove out using your handy dandy Paper Snips
- Use Stampin’ Dimentionals to adhere the sentiment and the dove to the card base.
