Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A quick Christmas card to share slowly gathering momentum to get mine done before November this year.  How are yours coming along.  I still have about 80 more to do!

Today's card is made using the last Christmas release from Sheena Douglass.

Step by Step

1. A5 white card turned on its side to create a landscape card.
2. First layer is blue mirri card.
3. I embossed using Vellum with the Frosty Ice Border embossing Folder, I then stamped Peace and embossed with white embossing powder, coloured the back with blue pen.
4. I then matted and layered onto blue mirri card and adhered with silver and blue brads.
5. This was then matted and layered onto white pearlescent card and attached to the first layer.
6. To finish off I stamped the dove and embossed with white embossing powder onto vellum and cut out, adhered one wing and shaped to give dimension.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Embossing on Vellum
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Christmas in July
Brown Sugar Challenge #156 - Anything Goes

This is an amazing monochromatic design! The composition is absolutely beautiful and your sense of color is so well done.. Your dove.... oh my..... is so delicate. The fact you stamped it on vellum gives it more dimension then white paper alone.. great design decision.. Elegance is what I would call this card.. very, very, very well done..
