Woodland Peace

Hello everyone! I couldn't be happier that today is Friday! I swear that yesterday should have been for all the weirdness going on at school. I ended up having to be a sub for the kindergarten teacher. Yikes! Those little kiddos are so cute but I am definitely not made to be a kindergarten teacher! Thankfully the aid came to my rescue and I ended up helping her! Supposedly there is a winter storm moving in. If it truly does snow a foot, then I can blame the weather - lol! Here's hoping that today is a "normal" sort of day with no weirdness!! Then I can end my day with some fun stitching time at Becky's!!

Today's card was inspired by one that I had saved a while ago. The sample actually used a stamped image of the trees and some beautiful soft papers. I had to rethink that part and I am pleased with how this turned out!

  • Card base is Smoky Slate
  • Sponge the edges of another piece of Smoky Slate card stock using Whisper White craft ink then adhere to card base using dimensionals
  • Run a piece of vellum through the Big Shot using the Woodlands embossing folder
  • Stamp the stars and dots image from Holly Jolly Greetings onto the vellum using Whisper White craft ink
  • Cut the "peace" from silver foil paper using the Christmas Greetings thinlits and adhere to vellum piece then apply the glue to the back side of the vellum where the "peace" is to adhere it to the card
  • Stamp the "on earth" onto a strip of Smoky Slate using Whisper White craft ink and emboss with white emboss powder
  • Flag the end and sponge the edges with Whisper White craft ink then adhere to card
  • Add rhinestones
