Wishing You Peace, Love and Joy Video Tutorial

We have been working very hard to bring you the Christmas designs showcased this week.  I hope that you enjoyed all of our creations and can draw some inspiration for what we have brought to you!

Wishing You Peace, Love and Joy

To create this card I started by simply die cutting a tree shape from this beautiful piece of DP from Studio Calico’s Wonderland Collection.  I then sponged the tree to add some dimension, embellished it using various sizes and shades of green rhinestones and voila…a beautiful focal point for my card!  I also added a piece of chevron DP from the same collection to the card.  But, rather than just adding a rectangular piece of DP to the card, I cut along the chevron pattern on the top and bottom of the DP using my paper snips and I found that this anchored the card!

  1. This is a really cute card – I love the tree die!! Also like your Holiday photo card, you always come up with such nice projects. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I would love receiving either one of these cards but if I had to pick a favorite, it’d be the embossed vellum. I love how you use the baker’s twine to frame the vellum. So cool!
