Peace and Joy


Hello! Another Christmas card!  I keep getting inspiration from on going challenges to make holiday cards.  For this I am using some new GKD Stamps recently received.  I created the background using GKD white CS, a sentiment stamp and Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink.  I embossed the upper part with Cuttlebug EF Snowflakes.  I stamped the focus image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics and Pencils. Layered the cut image on an Oval cut from red CS and added some glitter with Wink of Stella and Clear Star pen and a Gold pearl.  I assembled the card following Tuesday Morning Sketch adding some Raffia Ribbon from a Christmas Package and some Red gemstones.  The words Peace and Joy were stamped and trimmed to attach beneath the image.

Challenges:
Stamp TV : Mix It Up Monday Challenge-Double Talk-  stamp a sentiment more than once....and then emboss it.
Tuesday Morning Sketches: #283 Shown on right
613 Avenue Create Challenge: 2nd Annual Block Party Challenge- use as many techniques on your card as you can. Used Stamping, Copic Coloring, Pencils, Dry Embossing, Layering, Inked Background, etc.
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra: Anything Goes for Christmas.
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge: Inspired by a Christmas song.  There is a song called Peace and Joy from Disney. Click below on the arrow to hear.
