I decided to treat myself to a few new stamps from the Holiday Catalogue including this one, Dove of Peace. I love the detail on the dove and the verse of scripture that serves as the greeting. It’s a versatile stamp and a bargain at $17. I carefully cut off the greeting and mounted it separately on the other side of the wood block so the two images can be used one at a time.
I stamped with VersaMark ink onto Gold Foil paper and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. Then I cutout a square frame for the dove with the Squares Collections Framelits Dies.
The greeting was stamped with the Basic Black Archival Ink and punched with the Triple Banner Punch. Also on the greeting piece are are Gold Metallic Thread, Silver Satin Ribbon and Basic Black Stitched Satin Ribbon as well as a Gold Metal Button.
I layered a piece of Silver Foil paper as a layer the Basic Black card stock before assembling all of the pieces of the finished card.
I love using metallics like gold and silver on my cards. Especially at Christmas time. But I hate taking a picture of the cards because they always have strange shadows and marks. The next photo shows the card a bit better and shows that the weird dots around the dove are actually not really there.
I mixed and matched gold and silver embellishments like buttons, ribbon, and thread to keep the metallic theme on the greeting.
