Peaceful Wishes for You

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.
