Believe it or not – it’s a card!

Standard

Yay!  Finally I’m getting back into the swing of things and making some cards to show you.

This one uses A Wish for Peace, the stamp set that I wasn’t going to buy despite it’s $29.95 price tag, I ended up borrowing Lisa’s set so many times that I bought one for myself!

  • The card base is a piece of Kraft cardstock.  I’ve stamped the snowflake from Winter Post on it using Sahara Sand ink, which I stamped off once on a piece of scrap paper.
  • The main image is from A Wish for Peace.  I’ve inked up the image using my Stampin’ Write Markers in Chocolate Chip and Always Artichoke, stamping it on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
  • I coloured in the trees at the rear using my Blender Pens and Old Olive ink.  It makes the front tree stand out a little more (I’m still debating whether to add glitter to it, what do you think?)
  • The church has also been coloured in using Blender Pens, this time with Close to Cocoa and So Saffron ink.
  • The second layer is a piece of Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper, both this and the main image have been layered onto Close to Cocoa cardstock.
  • I have tied a piece of Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon around the Bella Bleu layer.
  • The greeting is from the Level 1 hostess set, Best Yet.  I punched it out using my circle punch, and layered it onto a Chocolate Chip circle, and then an Always Artichoke scallop circle.
  • To add extra depth and a vintage feel to the card, I sponged the edges of all layers using Creamy Caramel ink.
  • I have also used my Mat Pack to paper pierce the edges of the image and greeting pieces.
