Welcome to The Card Concept #165 Peace on Earth Challenge! Sorry I am a bit late with my card this week, we are still in the middle of renovations and spackling/painting walls has become my full-time job, lol!
For those of you who are not familiar with The Card Concept Challenge, we are a bi-weekly challenge that uses an inspiration photo for you to create a card.
We hope you can join us for our challenge. We are flexible- you can choose one card-making style or a combination of styles, the choice is yours, plus our Design Team has created cards to help give you even more inspiration!
For this challenge, I was inspired by the “Peace on Earth” theme as well as the silver and gold colors to create a simple Classy and Elegant style card! I am so far behind on my Christmas cards and hope to make multiples of this card this week!
Again, in an effort to use my existing stamps, I pulled out a few retired Stampin’ Up! sets- Dove of Peace and the simple stamp, Magical Season.
I am also participating with the Addicted to Stamps and More #419 “Any Occasion” Challenge, the Double Trouble #98 “Something, Anything, Everything” Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday “Happy Holidays/Christmas” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit The Card Concept, or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the Dove of Peace image with Versamark™ ink onto the prepared panel, apply Ultra Fine Gold Embossing Powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once cooled, fussy-cut the dove image and set aside.
Emboss another piece of white cardstock with the retired Finial Press (SU!) embossing folder (I had this panel already embossed in my stash).
Add a strip of silver ribbon, wrapping the ends behind the panel. Add another strip of gold ribbon, again wrapping the ends behind the panel (both of these ribbons were in my stash, so thankful to use just a bit of that stash).
Adhere the panel onto a white card base.
De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the Magical Season image with Versamark™ ink onto the prepared panel, apply Ultra Fine Gold Embossing Powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once cooled, die cut and emboss the sentiment image with the intricate rectangle die.
Mount the dove image along with the sentiment onto the card front with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: Dove of Peace, Magical Season (both retired Stampin’ Up!)
