Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop. This month the theme is Christmas is Coming! My project uses the Dove of Hope bundle which includes the Dove of Hope stamp set and the Detailed Dove Dies.
From the first time I saw this bundle I knew I was going to order it. Pretty much anytime I see the sentiment, Peace on Earth, I am in. Add in some Peace-Joy-Love, hope in your heart and beautiful images well I am sold.
I embossed the Whisper White CS using the Winter Snow embossing folder and then cut out the frame using the So Many Snowflakes die set. Just to warn you, I am a little obsessed with the So Many Snowflakes dies especially this frame so you will be seeing it a lot. The sentiment is embossed using Silver embossing powder on Vellum cardstock. Behind the framed piece I placed a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock.
In the centers of the snowflake I added a Blue Backed Adhesive Gem. Don't let that very utilitarian name fool you, these gems are beautiful and add lots of iridescent shine. Would love them in more colors! The dove was embossed in silver embossing powder and cut out using the Detailed Dove dies. Heat embossing is always so pretty and I am sure is how many of us got hooked on stamping.
The last thing I added to the front of the card was some Silver Metallic-Edge ribbon. This is still one of my favorite ribbons, it just adds a bit of elegance with its glossy satin finish and the shiny silver edge. The fact that it is easy to tie, makes it even better.
Now it is time for you to hop on over to see what the creative Deb Naylor has stamped up for you.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to let me know if you have any questions.
