And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Christmas Dove

Hello friends!  I have several cards using some newer stamp sets from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store that I am sharing on the SNSS Blog and thought I would share here as well.  CAS (Clean and Simple) is a style I struggle with, but this first card using the Peace on Earth stamp set is simply elegant and very easy to reproduce....especially with Christmas closing in on us!

Creative Nugget:  The dove image from the Peace on Earth stamp set and the sentiment from the Christmas Innies set were gold embossed on white card stock.  Spellbinder dies were used to cut the frame and pop up the dove image.  Each panel was matted with gold card stock and a small bow made with gold metallic thread was added to finish the card.

Creative Nugget:  The Hope Anchors sentiment was split to fit the design which is the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers this week.  One of the sentiments from the Be Encouraged 2 stamp set was white embossed on vellum.  The papers are from Graphic 45.  The stars found in my stash of embellishments were gold so I covered them with VersaMark ink and silver embossed them to match the anchor.   

These card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful weekend!
