Dove of Hope
August 05, 2020
The Dove of Hope bundle was one of the very first bundles I purchased from the 2020 August-December Mini Catalog. When I saw the stamp set the words and images just spoke to me. We all need some peace and hope in our hearts, I know I do.
I used the Detailed Dove dies to cut out the Whisper White dove. If you can see a bit of shine on the dove it is because I painted the dove using the Frost White Shimmer paint. I like how it adds shimmer but isn't too shiny. The background design is from the Plush Poinsettia Specialty paper. The flocked design is on white vellum. The pack has six 12" x 12" sheets (2 each of 3 flocked designs). The flocked pattern adds a lot of texture and feels great too.
Are you wondering where the "peace" is from? I don't do this very often but it is a retired die from the Christmas Greeting Thinlits and perfect for this card. I love the font and have kept it in my permanent collection of dies. I cut the peace from the Brushed Metallic 12" x 12" cardstock.
This is a simple card that doesn't require a lot of supplies. It will probably be one of the designs I use for my personal Christmas cards. Hope you like it too! If you do not have a copy of the 2020 August-December Mini Catalog, email me and I will get one out to you.
