Happy Cyber Monday! As someone who does NOT enjoy shopping in stores, I LOVE Cyber Monday! DIY Gift Packaging For All Occasions is on sale for Cyber Monday! Check it out HERE. Today's Challenge was to create a non-traditional Holiday Card without using the colors red or green. I immediately thought of Navy and White. I love that color combo. I think it's so classy. As a Paper Crafter, I usually have a recipient in mind when I create a card so it's easier because I can think about what that person likes and incorporate those elements into my Card Making. My friend, Christina, loves doves. I think of her whenever I see this stamp set. The base card is Whisper White cardtock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored and folded in half. I took a 2" X 2" square of Silver Glimmer Paper and cut it in half diagonally. I adhered those triangles to the corners of my card. I ran a piece of Night of Navy cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" through the Big Shot using the Pretty Print Embossing Folder. I made a double bow with a piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon and wrapped it around the front of the card, adhering it to the back using Glue Dots.
The dove is from the Calm Christmas Stamp Set. I inked it in Whisper White Craft Ink and stamped it onto Whisper White Cardstock and then embossed it using Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool. I cut it out using Paper Snips and adhered it to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. I used a Rhinestone for the dove's eye. I stamped "Peace on Earth" from the same stamp set and then embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool. I punched it out using the Extra Large Oval Punch and adhered it to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Three Rhinestone Basic Jewels finish off the card. You know I love to embellish the inside of my card and I didn't forget this one! I used a thin strip of Silver Glimmer Paper. If you need any of the supplies to make this card, you can have them delivered right to your door! Just visit my ONLINE STORE!
