Made this card for our Stampin Up Club Christmas Card Swap. Been a while since I have had chance to stamp, and this was fun as always.
Used A Wish for Peace stamp set, the card is brilliant blue, the backer is ballet blue, and the top is very vanilla. I used markers on the stamp itself: forest foliage for the trees, and creamy caramel for the church. I took the stamp again and did not include the church 2nd time, but overlayed the trees just a little for the clustered look. Then I took brilliant blue and masked a circle punch out behind the tree for the moon, wanted a wintery night sky look. I then used the white gel pen on the church for a wingery night look. I took crystal affects on the trees and the ground for snow, and affixed dazzling diamonds while still wet to give it that night snowy, look. It turned out so nice, but I am afraid the dazzling diamonds will not show up as well. Let card top dry overnight and mount.
On the inside I used white embossing powder and stamped the dove and saying.
Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my card, and have a Happy Thanksgiving and a Blessed Christmas.
