Today's Christmas card had a very humble beginning. This whole card was designed around my desire to use up a piece of this pretty DP! It just might be a Wild Rose Studio DP...I need to somehow label my snippets to know exactly! lol
I love the pattern and colours in this DP but they are unusual colours for me to use. Green, red, and purple! Since I have a few friends who LOVE purple, I decided to try to make that the predominant shade, so matted the image and the card base with purple cardstock.
The image is a bit of a change from my usual Momento black images. I must confess that even though do own lots of embossing powders, I rarely remember to use them!
I heat embossed this pretty Dove of Peace with a silver embossing powder. Seemed like a good idea at the time, but once matted with the purple paper, it seemed a bit lost on the card. I peeled off the mat and added an inner mat of distressed silver metallic card, and then added the purple mat back on. Did the same for the sentiment although had to use a snippet of a different type of silver mirri card. There just was not enough of the distressed silver mirri card leftover from the larger image mat!
No lumpy embellishments here...instead a nice and easy card to mail as it is very slim in depth.
With all that is going on in the world at the moment, it felt good to use this Dove Of Peace.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
