It pays to clean the house every once in awhile! LOL!
I was tooling around in my desk and found some old Christmas cards that I'd sent to family a few years ago (pre-stamping days). I thought they were gorgeous. And now... they screamed Peaceful Wishes to me...
The back of the card had a small thumbnail picture of the cardinal, which I punched out and adhered to the envelope to tie the project together.
I also didn't want the berry branches in the stamped sections to be too bright. Using my stipple brush, I tapped whisper white craft on the image and heat set. It made the stamped image look like it had snowed. The final tie in was to distress the edges of the cardstock with Going Gray ink and sponge.
Thanks for looking!
The recipe for the card is on the previous upload.
