Peace at Christmas


Hi everyone!

Today I have a soft pastel Christmas card to share.
 Usually I am always drawn to the traditional Christmas colors of red and green, but I do think sometimes a light blue or pink can be SO pretty. 

Once again, there is no stamping on this card...only dies..which of course are my very favorites! I used MFT Blueprints #20 for the base of the card, all in soft sky and white. I adhered Memory Box Frozen Flakes and some Memory Box Small Blooming Poinsettias on top. For a bit of bling, I added some tiny pearls in the centers. The sentiment from Paper trey is cut out with some glitter paper from JoAnne's.




I'm entering this at:

Addicted to CAS soft sky blue
Jingle Belles: snow (snowflakes), die cuts, bling (glitter paper and pearls)



Outside the box (cool thoughts for warm days)

Have a great day!



Paper: SU white and soft sky, glitter paper
Dies: Memory Box frozen Flakes, Small Blooming poinsettias, Paper trey sentiment, MFT Blueprints #20
Other: SU tiny pearls

I didn't know Paper Trey had glitter paper ... must check it out ... love the gorgeous layering of die cuts to create your design ... so glad you played a game of tic-tac-toe with us at Jingle Belles.

Stef, the die sentiment "peace" is from Papertrey, not the glitter paper. But maybe they do sell glitter paper! I found some at our local craft store!
