Carols of Christmas - Peace on Earth 3


Hi & welcome. I have one more Carols of Christmas card to share with you today featuring that brilliant Peace on Earth sentiment. This was another one we made at my Diamond Stampers team day in July, and I think it's my favourite so far.  What do you think?


I love the crispness of the red, white & navy scheme, the detail from the die cut poinsettia frame and subtle texture from the Softly Falling embossing folder.


The white frame is popped up with mini dimensionals, as it the navy framed sentiment. The touch of silver ribbon & rhinestones adds some essential shine.

Are you wondering how I made the frame? I butted the two corner dies together at the top,
(pictured below, top right), then aligned them again to cut the bottom half of the frame.
 

Back to the card, the inside is simple but carries through the colour & image theme. I do love that sentiment from Holly Berry Happiness and it's been getting a good workout lately.

Did you know that the corner dies also cut out the poinsettia image I used inside?


So that's it for Carols of Christmas for now, but I'm sure it will be back. Hope they've given you lots of ideas to try on your own Christmas cards.
Missed some? You can see all my Carols of Christmas cards here.

Remember to pin this card & the others for later inspiration.


I'll be back soon to share more ideas, so pop back again soon. Thanks again for visiting.

Sending inky wishes from me,
Di

Carols of Christmas - Peace on Earth 2


Thanks for popping in for a visit today. I have another Christmas card to share using the Carols of Christmas bundle - a little woodland scene using a combination of the stamps and dies. This was one of the cards we made at my July Diamond Stampers team day.

 
How sweet is that little deer? And no fussing cutting required thanks to the coordinating die. The trees are so easy too - there are 2 tree dies in the Card Front Builder set bundled in Carols of Christmas (see the supply list below). I cut a pair in wild wasabi & garden green card.


Two much loved supporting players add so much texture & interest to the card:

- Softly Falling embossing folder, which is an absolute must-have in my book, as it plays so well with others all year round for many themes.

- Stitched Shapes dies. Are you thinking, "I didn't realise there were rectangles in the set?" You'd be correct. I extended the largest square die shape into a rectangle by running it partially through the Big Shot, twice. It's really easy to line up, as the stitched areas help hold the die in place. If you'd like more info on how to do this, leave a comment to let me know.


I think this card has a fresh, modern feel even though the colours & images are quite traditional. Either way, I like how it turned out. How about you?

Thanks for visiting today. If you'd like more info, just ask. I have one more Carols of Christmas card to share with you, so pop back again tomorrow for a peek.

Remember to pin my card for later inspiration, & check out Carols of Christmas in the supply list below for more information, or to order this brilliant bundle.

Inky wishes,
Di
