Peaceful Church Christmas Card

We received so many beautiful dies this month in our Tonic USA blog package I could not stop with only three cards designed (which is the number we blog each month on the team.) I still had some BARC wood paper from last month's collaboration with ARC Crafts so I cut the Ornate Church and the inside peace dove (from the Mistletoe Wreath Frame Set) out of the BARC wood paper. We are featuring Nuvo embossing powders this month (from Tonic of course) so I decided to add some aging to the Ornate Church. I swiped some Versamark over just parts of the church and dumped Hot Chocolate Embossing Powder, then melted with my heat gun. I also applied and heat set Nuvo Classic Gold Embossing Powder to the cross. Here is a close up of the Ornate Church:

The green card base was cut 5 1/2" x 11" and I marked the center of the card without folding it. Then I die cut the Mistletoe Bow Header in the center of the cardbase, folded the card and added Autumn Red Crystal Drops to make berries on the Mistletoe. I die cut the beautiful Rising Dove out of Tonic gold mirror card and attached it with its wings raised for flight. 

I am entering this card in the Powder Power challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

What a wonderful way to display so many dies! I love how you used them to create a scene! Your card looks elegant and sophisticated and it's always a treat to see inspiring holiday cards. Makes me motivated to get going on mine early this year....even though I say that every year! Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
