Merry Monday Holiday Peace

There's another great sketch at Merry Monday this week!


I pulled out an old stamp set.

The dove was stamped on Midnight Muse and Whisper White and embossed with silver.  I fussy cut the white dove and adhered it over the blue dove with dimensionals.  Someone asked what fussy cutting was.  It's just a fancy way of saying I cut it out with scissors.

The shaped bottom was also fussy cut.  In this case freehand.

After I die cut the circle from the Midnight image, I used the leftover piece for another card.

Two more Christmas cards for my stash!

Be sure to check out the other fabulous cards by the design team. 

Then grab  your stamps and join us at Merry Monday.  I'll be looking for your card in the gallery!

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  To You and Yours, Good Cheer Builder Wheel* (card 1)

* I removed the rubber from the wheel and added Clear Mount Cling foam to use on a clear block.

Thanks for the visit!
