Christmas in July - Part Five - Peace on Earth

Hello!  A quick share with a couple more Christmas cards for the stash.   My card box is definitely fuller!


I made two cards using the same stamp and layout.  I am always trying to use up patterned paper, so I used some non-traditional paper here, adding sponging with distress inks, stickles and sparkley embellishments.


The grey background was made with an embossing folder and grey pigment ink with the letterpress technique.


Supplies: Stampendous Classic Peace stamp, Versafine Onyx black ink, Stickles, Distress Ink Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass, My Mind's Eye All is Bright 6x6 paper pad, Creatology Foam snowflakes, Martha Stewart snowflake embossing folder, Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I would love to enter SimonSaysStamp Wednesday challenge We're Seeing Stars !

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I was surprised when I read the background was grey, because it looked white, but they're both lovely cards! The image/sentiment panel is so pretty and I love the snowflakes!
