Peace on Earth and Mercy Mild

Hi Friends! 

Merry Christmas Eve!  I wanted to share with you another quick Mixed Media Christmas card that I designed using the December 2016 Artistic Outpost (AO) release stamp sets, Christmastime and Gloria (both available at Our Daily Bread Designs).

I love participating with online challenges and am linking this card to the My Time To Craft! #336 “Christmas But None Traditional Colours” Challenge as well as the Christmas Card Challenges 2017 #2 Challenge (I was inspired by the blue). 

If you have not had a chance to visit The Artistic Outpost Blog or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from my Design Team sisters on the AO Blog as well as the online challenge galleries!

To create this card:

1). Ink the AO Christmastime stamp with an archival navy ink and stamp onto a piece of vanilla cardstock, heat set with a heat tool.

2). Die cut and emboss a piece of navy cardstock using the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies, trim the stamped panel and mount onto a die cut .

3). Die cut and emboss a piece of vanilla cardstock using the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies, mount onto the navy card base.

4). Mount the layered stamped panel onto the card front and use a water brush to lightly apply frost white shimmer paint over the background scroll and ornament areas.

4). Ink the sentiment from the AO Gloria stamp set and stamp onto a scrap piece of vanilla cardstock.

5). Trim the sentiment and tear the edge, mount onto a piece of navy cardstock (tearing the edge to match as well).

6). Mount the sentiment to the card front with dimensional foam and add a few pearls to finish off the card.

Quick and easy- perfect for the last minute hand delivered card or for mailing! 

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- hugs to all of you and I hope you have a very blessed Christmas!
