A Wish for Peace

Last December I attended a gorgeous wedding.  As the snow softly fell the happy couple exchanged their vows.  They had asked me at the time if I could create a few thank you cards for them so today I have one of the designs to show you.

The focal image is a combination of Spellbinders Classic Circles and Lacey Circles.  The image was stamped in VersaMark and embossed with white embossing powder.  I then sponged Brilliance Pearlescent Beige and Crumb Cake all around the circle.  I couldn't resist adding a gold star to the top of the tree.  It was then mounted to a Lacey Circle cut from a piece of Brushed Gold paper.  1/8" beige satin ribbon was weaved through the loops for a touch of elegance.

The background was created by stamping snowflakes in VersaMark and embossing them with gold embossing powder with a heat gun.  I added some pearls to the center of each one.  Just for you was stamped on a grommet tag and embossed in gold.  Everything was adhered to a piece of Brushed Gold and mounted to a coco card.

The inside sentiment was also embossed in gold with a matching snowflake.

I can't wait until the weekend to do some crafting.  Do you have anything special planned?  As the temperature dips I have been enjoying my hot chocolate with whip cream!  My favorite is The Fresh Market's Winter Blend.
