Let There be Peace on Earth...



The title of this blog post is my wish for you and our world this holiday season and that wish is expressed on most of my Christmas cards this year. I cut the Nativity scene out of a white card base with a beautiful new die from Die'sire. While it was still in the die, I sponged on the blue ink. The die acts as a stencil as well as cuts and embosses. I also used a stencil (stars from Memory Box) on the navy blue card front. I applied silver glitter paste from BoBunny though the star openings. This glitter paste dries much faster than other stencil pastes. To complete the card I added my Peace wish (cut with a die from Ellen Hutson.)

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and the "Something Stenciled" challenge at Daring Cardmakers.
