Peace Keeping Christmas

May 25, 2020

It's time for this month's installment of the Keeping Christmas Inspriration Blog Hop!  The Challenge Design Team is sharing Christmas creations on the 25th of each month!

The whole idea is to have some Christmas cards and projects in your stash ready to go for December 2020!

So hop along and be sure to visit each blog.

I created two card for my blog this month.  I selected Christmas DSP and added it to a Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green card base.  I added a strip of each color to separate the DSP.

I used the Perfect Poinsettia Dies from MFT to make the two poinsettias.  I love this die set.  I used bright pink and red to create the poinsettias.  The leaves were cut with the Garden Green.  I cut the word Peace out five times for each sentiment to add dimension.  A few enamel dots were added to each card.  

The inside of each card is created using a strip of the DSP and a sentiment from Tim Holtz.  I will be making these in different colors to add to my Christmas stash.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear from you!  Do you have a favorite?
