Two Peace cards
So cute, this inspiration picture from Festive Friday!
I knew exactly what to make for it - something that happens rarely when I start out making a card...But in the end I liked the byproduct more than what I envisioned at first - also not unusual....So first the byproduct, which I like better:
I had s snippet of patterned paper left over from a previous card and I used it to die cut the letters. I used the negative die cut for this card. The holly is a punch from Martha Stewart and I used little red gems for sparkle. I also cut the card stock a ta on the side and put a green panel behind it for balance.
This card I will also submit to the Pixie Crafty Snippets Playground challenge. The lovely Di offers it and its a fun challenge with the only rule to use a snippet (left over scraps in American English) - I like snippet better - sounds really cute!
I am also linking those cards with:
I am not sure about the rules - maybe none? If I find out, I'll let you know...
Now on to card#2:
Here is the card I thought of first, using the die cut letters:
This card was really quick to make. I will also link it up with the ACB Chrismas challenge - Q for quick
The dove is 100 Proof Press, the letters are Papertrey Block alphabet. The little branches are Hero Arts.
