Peace on Earth

Happy Monday!  Only 9 days until Christmas, can you believe it!?  Are you ready?  I still have a lot of gifts to buy or create and then WRAP!  I love wrapping presents 🙂  Particularly when they’re in a big ol’ box that’s easy to make beautiful 🙂  Anyway, wrapping presents doesn’t have anything to do with today’s cards, but oh well.  I have 2 cards to share with you today, and they both share the same theme: Peace.  Take a look:

gold peace 1

 

I started this card with the gold-patterned paper and the stamp, and not much more.  It’s a little odd, I can’t tell you exactly how this one came together.  It just…did.  I stamped, embossed, die cut, dug through my stash, layered, punched, cut…and there it was!  I love how clean and visually interesting it is all at the same time.  Here’s the inside:

I’ve never done a card with both silver and gold.  Usually it’s one or the other, but the combo worked perfectly for this card.

The second card was inspired by the paper I used as the background:

It was already so beautiful with the silver foil flourish, all I had to do was figure out how to add elements without covering it up too much.  A little cluster of goodies was the perfect way 🙂  I fussy cut the label and stamped the sentiment, then added the blue rhinestones and glitter glue border.  I adhered that to a strip of navy paper that I had run through my Cuttlebug with a simple border die for a little more visual interest.  Then, I fussy cut the Christmas tree, used 3 different glues to add the snowflake, popped a bow on, and called it done!  Here’s the inside:

And there you have it, folks!  I hope you enjoyed today’s card selection.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day!

    Oooh…silver and gold…can’t go wrong there. I love the simplicity of it, and the way the design fits the sentiment. You know how much I love blue…and that blue card is simply stunning. Your embellies compliment the gorgeous paper perfectly! Well done!
