Peace & Joy - A Very Bright Christmas Card


In celebration of the new AUGUST-DECEMBER MINI CATALOGUE launch this week, I am continuing with my Christmas theme and today's card introduces another of my new sets.  The PEACE & JOY BUNDLE is a photopolymer stamp set and dies combo and it involves one of my favourite things - fonts!

This set with its fantastic bold key words - BRIGHT - PEACE - JOY - and a plethora of accompanying block sentiments is a pleasure to work with.

My inspiration for this card came from a suite in last year's seasonal offerings, which I loved!  I had to case the colour combo of Cherry Cobbler. Old Olive, Pretty Peacock and I decided to swap the original Crushed Curry for the new In-Colour - BUMBLEBEE as I wanted to incorporate the IN- COLOUR DSP I had.

For this card I used my STAMPERATUS to create a wreath effect on a square of WHISPER WHITE CARD STOCK with the foliage images in the set - utilising all the colours in the combo.

I then die cut the three-step word BRIGHT from the die set.  I love how the shadowing builds the word up and lets it pop of the page.  The fine piece is so delicate and yet not too fiddly to work with, just don't forget to keep that tiny dot above the 'i'.  Although you can always sub for a RED RHINESTONE if you loose it.

Once assembled this word is placed on DIMENSIONALS above the wreath and then again on the card base which I firstly decorated with a narrow band of the dotted IN-COLOUR DSP in BUMBLEBEE.

Such a cheerful card I had to make two - this time I switched it round for a landscape version and I love both.  For the card bases I chose REAL RED instead of the CHERRY COBBLER in the inked image to brighten up the card more.
