Peace on Earth

Hello everyone! I'm dropping in to share the card I created for the Christmas card challenge blog. I love creating Christmas cards year round, because when November rolls around, I am finished with my cards and they can be sent out straight away. The challenge for this week was to create your own background. I decided to go Clean and Simple...

supplies~
stamp sets: Winter Wonderland(Taylored Expressions)   The Magic of Christmas(GinaK Designs)
card stock: Kraft(Papertrey Ink)   Real Red(Stampin' Up!)
ink: White Daisy Pigment ink(Close to My Heart)   Fresh Snow(Papertrey Ink)
ribbon: Real Red(SU!)
gems:  Tiny Twinkles(Taylored Expressions)  Clear Gems(Heidi Swapp)

 I just love the Kraft, red and white color combo. The snowflakes are stamped with White Daisy ink. The edges are sponged with Fresh Snow. I added some bling to make the card sparkle. Tied on a bow of Real Red, stamped my greeting and then I was finished.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend.



Blessings~
