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.

Hi Cornelia! Well, you stormed into the snippets playground with a fabulous card didn't you?! It's just perfect (as is the other one you also made). Love the way you used the negative lettering - welcome and hope you play along regularly.

Hugs, Di xx

Hi Cornelia, great snippets card, very clever to use the negative die cut. I like your 2nd card too, beautifully CAS. Cathy x

They're both great! I do like the first one a little better, only because I like the bold panel and the holly. But they're both awesome! Thanks so much for joining Festive Friday!

sorry! Ich habe erst jetzt entdeckt, daß Du bei X-Mas on Tuesday teilgenommen hast. Da mein geschriebenes Englisch ganz furchtbar ist, schreibe ich in deutsch. Es gibt nur 2 Regeln für X-Mas on Tuesday: Du hast es selbst gemacht und es ist weihnachtlich. Ich danke Dir sehr herzlich für Deine Teilnahme!
