Welcome to my world of craftiness

Dove of peace…

on 10/08/2015

Good morning everyone, so its my Creative Expressions Monday blog, don’t they roll round quick?

Todays card I have decided to do a blue Christmas card using the following items all from Creative Expressions…

Sue Wilson snowflake background

dove of peace

pierced flags

classic poinsettia

shaded poinsettia stamp

white embossing powder

sticky sheet

blue colour cloud ink (sorry didn’t write down what blue I used…slapped wrist)

brilliant blue ultra fine glitter

3mm pearls

white ribbon


So I cut out a piece of coconut white card just enough to fit under the snowflake background, covered it with a sticky sheet, then peeled the top layer off and smothered it with the ultra fine blue glitter.  Cut out the snowflake die, cut out a rectangle frame just to give it a nicer finish, glued it onto my glitter sheet.

Stamped and cut 2 lots of poinsettia in vellum, coloured it on the back with a blue cloud ink, a little shaping then layered them up, shaped the pierced flag and glued bothe onto the background.  Added the dove with a foam pad to lift it off the card. Added some pearls to the background.

Cut my base layer card, added some ribbon and a dazzler, then mounted the background onto it.

Hope you like it…

    Oh Debbie, this is fantastic, your creations are truly out of this world, it would take me a month of Sundays to design something like this. I love it.

    Also I received my beautiful winning card from last week, the photo does not do it justice, it is sitting on my shelf now looking at me, it is something I will treasure, thanking you again.

    Enjoy Monday everyone, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
