Peace On Earth Christmas Card

by Joanne James30. October 2021 16:14

Hurrah it's the weekend! A quick card from me today that I made earlier in the week for a couple of challenges:

The current challenge over at Time Out has a theme of 'Down to Earth'; I didn't use the optional twist of kraft cardstock because I wanted to use one of my favourite Christmas stamps with some retired paper I have been hoarding that dictated the colour scheme of today's card - take a look:


I thought the retired World of Good Embossed Specialty Designer Series Paper would make the perfect themed backdrop to go with the 'peace on earth' stamp set from the 'Thinking Thanks and Peace' stamp set. I heat-embossed my stamp in gold onto Basic Grey and coloured my dove with my Stampin' chalk marker:


A sentiment and an offcut strip of that beautiful embossed paper complete the inside of my card:


This stamp is very much a 'one and done' so great for quick cards, but it can be easily dressed up with the addition of some background themed stamping or designer paper, as I've done here. This stamp is a favourite of mine so I am also joining up with the lovely ladies over at SUO Challenges where they are asking us to showcase our favourite holiday products (so many to choose from!)

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

What a fab combination of DSP and sentiment! I wish I still had a stash of that paper - it was amazing!

I love the way you have gold embossed that wonderful sentiment Joanne and coloured in the dove with a chalk marker - very effective! Clever to think of that DSP for a background too. Vicky x

You're right, Joanne, the retired paper is the perfect backdrop for your Peace on Earth sentiment!  The gold embossing makes this card so elegant.  Thanks so much for playing along with us at SUO Challenges!
