Dove Card of Encouragement

Looking to brighten someone’s day? How about this card of encouragement featuring the Detailed Dove dies from the August – December 2020 Mini Catalog? These dies are not just for the holidays. It’s Friday, and time to play at Festive Friday Challenges – home of the Inspo List!

For this week’s challenge,  we are inspired by the National Day of Encouragement.  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion.  Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project.  I used: ribbon, foil paper, uplifting sentiment, sparkle, rhinestones, bird. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card is all about the sparkle!  Silver Foil, Metallic Mesh ribbon, and rhinestones galore will surely lift anyone’s spirits, especially when combined with this sentiment from Beautiful World.  And how about this absolutely stunning die cut dove? It is made using the Detailed Dove dies,  which are part of the  Dove of Hope Bundle, a holiday set.  But you know what…these dies are not just for Christmas. Can you imagine the gorgeous wedding, anniversary, sympathy, and birthday cards which could be created with this dove? I can’t wait to create more cards with it!
