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:
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!
