Good morning friends,
As I listen to Christmas music, I thought I would share a card I created for my dear friend Rita. I have always adored the SU Peaceful Wishes set - an oldie, but a goodie!
The base card is natural linen white mounted with a piece of Lost Lagoon. Next, a piece of Very Vanilla paper was embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I wish I knew the name of the folder; however, it became separated from the packaging so it's a mystery.
The branches were stamped in Distress Iced Spruce onto a piece of Very Vanilla paper, cut from a Spellbinders Labels Nine #6 die. They were accented with a mint colored Spica pen. A pinecone was stamped in Chocolate Chip and embossed with clear embossing powder with a heat gun. Peace was stamped in Marina Mist and also embossed. You should know by now I practically emboss everything ... LOL! I found some antique ivory and gold ribbon in my stash - perfect for the bow!
The inside greeting by Stampabilities was stamped in Marina Mist and embossed with clear embossing powder.
An elegant card for a special lady! I wanted to go with a softer color palette.
Well, the countdown begins - the last shopping weekend before Christmas. Have you finished? Are you ready for the big day? Michael and I are off to do some grocery shopping and stop at the butcher.
