Bold Peace

Happy Saturday, peeps!  We are shopping today to pack our Operation Christmas Child boxes!  Cassidy always likes to do that!  I squeezed in some time to create a Christmas card yesterday for a few challenges:  the gorgeous photo from The Card Concept, the FMS sketch, and the metallic Christmas from  In(k)spire Me!

# 406 - 21.11.2019 Christmas-Special METALLIC - Heike 406_we10

The Card Concept always wants to know what style card you've created---I would say that this is "cleand and layered"!  I recently got a beautiful pad of patterned paper called Wonderland from KaiserCraft, and it had this gorgeous foiled paper with a funky tree design!  I matted it with a piece of Bermuda Bay foil; in order to save some of this gorgeous foil, after cutting the mat, I cut out the center of it so that I just had a "frame" on which I mounted the printed paper!  I then used part of the piece left from the inside of the frame to diecut the "peace" (Papertrey):

I also had some Bermuda Bay glimmer paper left from last Christmas, so I cut out a few little trees  (The Stamp Market) and topped them with some silver stars

On the inside, stamped with Bermuda Bay inked, I added a sentiment from a past Paper Pumpkin kit, along with some Stamp Market trees:

The card base is Naturals White...missing that nice paper from SU's lineup!  Glad I got some while it was on the Clearance Rack!  Thanks for popping in today!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!
