Golden Dove Christmas Card

In two weeks, it will be Christmas Day! Can you believe it? If you are looking for a last minute “wow” card, why not consider this “Golden Dove” Christmas card.  It’s time to play at Festive Friday, the home of the Inspo List!

For this week’s challenge,  we are inspired by Christmas.  Remember – 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, peace on earth, red and green on my card this week.  I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

A month ago, I created a classic red and green Christmas card, with elegant touches of gold, for The Paper Players.  For it, I used a wonderful sketch designed by the talented LeAnne. The sketch allowed me to showcase some of Stampin’ Up!’s beautiful Christmas designer papers.  Since I still had strips of these same papers tucked away on the corner of my desk, I decided to recreate the card base, and switch out the focal image. I LOVE the Detailed Dove dies, so I reached for them one more time. These gorgeous dies are retiring, and are only available through January 4th, while supplies last. They are among my favorite dies ever.  A few Forever Gold laser cut leaves make a perfect backdrop for the dove.
